Update IOC!!

Its now April 2019 and the last Bird Journal IOC update was June 2016 (IOC 6.2). The current version published by IOC is 9.1. Its very disappointing when it takes years to update a fundamental taxonomy. This should be the core of Bird Journal and updated as and when a new version is published.

Unfortunately I am starting to get the feeling that the development (and updating of Bird Journal) is grinding to a halt. We get the occasional new or updated taxonomy created by users themselves, but now almost no in-house developments. Its a shame to see what was a great product apparently stagnate and possibly die:(

    Have tried to request info on updates, but nobody from Bird Journal seems to reply to any requests, it would appear they don't actually look at these suggestions or comments or their Twitter feed

    very DISAPPOINTING , waiting for updates, looking to change my recording program, no good if years out of date. Any updates in the pipeline, the Bird Journal team could at least reply to these concerns.

    Agree, has been promised for some time but have failed to deliver. It would be good to have visibility of the timeline. Other software packages like Scythebill can update IOC within days of an update.
