Just a few bug-fixes this time around! Please do comment or use the support portal to give us your feedback.
We have had a busy few weeks training new Mermaid clients, so welcome on board to all our new users. In this release we have a new feature for setting task lengths in repeats, detailed below. Please feel free to comment or use the support portal to give us your feedback.
MM-1016: Set task lengths from a table for different repeats.
We now have the ability to setup our own specific durations for each repeat of a task. This means that when you are setting up a repeating group where a particular task varies from one repeat to the next, you can now set it up to have different task lengths on each repeat of the task or group.

This release we’re proud to present the export of task plans to Microsoft Project, as well as a host of other improvements. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment below or use the support portal to give us your feedback.
MM-370: Export of Gantt chart data to Microsoft Project.
As you can tell from the MM-number, this has been on the list for some time! It’s now possible to export data from the Gantt chart (found under Setup-Tasks-Gantt Chart) to Microsoft Project. Read more >
Over the last two weeks we’ve really been hammering Mermaid on some more complex analyses, and been able to use them as a proving ground for some significant performance improvements. In the background we’ve been working away on new features, but we thought that you’d really appreciate seeing these bug fixes and performance gains for yourselves.
Every two weeks we deliver a new set of features and improvements. We would like to say a particular, “thank you” to all of our users who have contributed their thoughts and priorities into helping make this release our most user-driven release yet. Your feedback is much appreciated.
As well as the technical improvements below, we’ve successfully trialled remote training. This means that our more distant customers are able to train effectively on Mermaid.
MM-1288: Display comparative results in Box-Whisker charts.Read more >
Our latest release is now out and adds some new features to improve the usability of Mermaid and to allow further interrogation of your results sets.
MM-1289: Display comparative results in Exceedance charts.
It is now possible to plot data from multiple simulations on one Exceedance chart, allowing direct visual comparison of the results. To plot multiple results sources on one chart use the control keyboard key to multi-select in the “Results Source” box under “Chart Options”. It is also now possible to name results sources rather than using their file names. Read more >
Our latest release focuses on usability and performance gains to improve the overall Mermaid experience.
MM-1577: Stamp down Tasks, Start Points, End Points and Groups
We have changed the way in which items are added to the Flow Diagram to a system where you can ‘stamp down’ the items exactly where you want them within your operation. This speeds up the planning of your operation and improves the overall experience.
The Flow Diagram now has a mode for each item type and functions in the same manner as the adding of locations in the Map view. Read more >
Happy new year to all our users! We are settled back into the new year here and development continues apace. Here are the release notes for the latest release version, released this afternoon.
MM-1382: Add a Maximum Suspension Time option.
We’ve added the ability to limit the suspension time in your operation. Previously, a task or group could be suspended indefinitely due to weather. We now allow the user to choose a maximum suspension time so that your simulation can more closely match the realities of a marine operation. Read more >
