The change log entry is as follows:

  • Tag: DEV-AAVSO-06May2017
  • Key Changes:
    • - Ticket #157 Cannot mark obs discrepant in phase plot mode

Thanks to:

I mentioned around the time of the last release that I would have more to say about VeLa (see #364) in future and I will. In the meantime, see View -> VeLa Filter... and page 52 of the updated user manual.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
