Scythebill 16.1 - IOC 14.1 taxonomy

Scythebill 16.0 is now available!  Its main feature is the new IOC 14.1 taxonomy, with some small fixes.  As always, download here, and let me know if you have any problems, either on Facebook or by email.

IOC 14.1 taxonomy

The IOC 14.1 taxonomy was finalized today, and Scythebill's ready today.  You can get an overview of the changes on the IOC website, as well as a full list of splits and lumps.  There's a 3-way split of Intermediate Egret, 4-way splits of Hooded Pitta, Fire-breasted Flowerpecker, and Black-throated Trogon, and an 8-way split of Olive-backed Sunbird!  As always, if you want to see what it did for your list, visit the Splits and Lumps special report, and you'll see a rundown of just what happened with your life list (I'm up net 10 species):

Other changes

There's not a huge number of other changes, just a couple of fixes:
  • When searching for latitude and longitude from a location name (especially towns and cities), you'll get results far more often from Google than before.
  • Extended taxonomies which don't contain checklists would act as if they supported (empty) checklists, giving users lots of "New for checklist" notices.
