4.12 Release - IRWIN Integration 4.13 Release Adds Hauling Charts and NTFB Animated KMZs

Release 4.12 deployed on Training 3/17/2014 and to Production 3/18/2014

Release 4.13 will be deployed on Training 5/14/2014 and to Production 5/15/2014.

NOTE: Release 4.12 focused on functionality related to the WFDSS integration with IRWIN. and contained no user visible functionality or enhancements. When the Integrated Reporting of Wildland-Fire Information (iRWIn) program is available, it will populate incident data automatically into WFDSS, disabling some incident entry fields in the WFDSS application. At that time, administrative units should not create incidents in Production that have already been entered into a Computer Aided Dispatch system (such as WildCAD 6) or the 209 system. WildCAD 5 will still require batch uploads.
