I hope everyone has had a good Chistmas. Here is what has been happenning with MX Mariner developments.
Next minor release 1.1.9 will sport the following changes:
A.) Reduced memory usage and perfomance tweaks. Now that we have ovezoom functionality, It's important that we back track a bit and polish up our performance.
B.) In order to reduce our memory usage, we are now including a world overview map with MX Mariner. This also allows us to work 100% offline in Nautical Chart Mode. Version 1.1.9 and later will now have 3 map display modes which can be quickly changed from the Display Dialog:
1 - Nautical Raster Charts - Offline (No internet/data connection required)
2 - Roadmap - Online (Internet/data connection required)
3 - Satellite
- Online (Internet/data connection required)
