OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha

Hello tester-folk...

We will start OCPN 4.8.1 Beta testing soon.

I preparation, we have been working against the Flyspray 4.8 bug-list, trying to edit/curate the tasks into an actionable list.

So, if you have posted a task on this list, please visit Flyspray soon.

https://opencpn.org/flyspray/

Note the status of your tasks, adding comments and clarification if necessary. We will not close these tasks until the Beta test starts and we can get consensus on their resolution.

Also, for those truly adventurous, the source code in the github repo for OCPN has been recently updated significantly. Test builds and variance reports are always welcome, even outside of a formal test cycle. Saves a lot of time later...

Thanks
Dave

I built it last night to prove my MSVC++ setup was good. It runs. I'll try more later.

Re: OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha

Hi,

For weather routing and grib I've a couple of changes , currently there's a big memory leak with interpolated records and I have a smart pointer thing for sharing grib records in weather routing between configurations but it means changing grib record in a non compatible way.
Dave and Sean have you time for looking at it?

Sure, bring it to the table. Now is a good time for potentially disruptive changes.

Re: OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha

This is just an idea, but using Tide Stations is not useful for getting better tide&current data inshore or even in Bay of Fundy or other places. RTOFS current files are not that accurate with respect to tides.

It would be great if we could make ODraw Boundaries and attach current/tide vector to them and have those treated like a current grib file and included in the calculations for weather_routing.

This would require some additional API message/call for ODraw <---> WxRte but it might be possible to do if the parties thought it was worthwhile.

Re: OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha

Downloaded and compiled under Armbian - A20 ARMhf. An OLIMEX A20 board.

Long time compiling to see it working - but it does run with basic functions without hick-ups..

Isn't the plugin that requests the record responsible for freeing it? How is it leaking?

If it could share records between configurations that might be nice, but I doubt it would help performance that much. How much memory?

Maybe it could just copy the records and use smart pointers within the weather routing plugin?

In any case, I'm happy to accept working changes that improve performance, but I'm just asking some basic questions.

Re: OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha

Dave.. Pavel..
Win10 VS2013
Commit: "Implement user selectable SOG/COG calculation from position data."

The function is not working and when selected in options both COG and SOG are "jumping around" as it's out of control.

And what is your actual speed? You of course can't expect this to provide any useful results if all the position change you get is random GPS error.

Pavel..
SOG = ~5.2 knots, COG = ~43 degr.
No GPS random errors. Very fine SOG and COG when the function is unchecked in option.

When activating your new cog/sog feature in "options" this pops up:

I tested this alpha from the command line and these are the last few lines:

And your setting for the dampening? At 5 knots 1 second should be fine and is in my tests.
