In Release 7.6, the MUTCD Warrants tool has been rebuilt with an upgraded internal architecture to provide more user flexibility and to make it more consistent with the rest of the HCS modules. The Freeways modules add new charts to display speed and density distributions. Freeways also implements automatic segmentation logic to build freeway facilities from freeway sections. The uninterrupted-flow modules now support printing and saving the formatted and text reports as XPS files from the command line.
