Open CPN Beta 3.3.827

Hi folks Thanks as always for a great product.

System is LINUX UBUNTU 13.04 LTS

I have simulated over 2000NMi since I last found a bug and rolling back to the latest version release of course it is rock stable.

Open CPN Beta 3.3.827

Managed to crash this version and the patch just prior to this version by:

Dropping a mark ahead of the vessel,

Selecting Navigate to the Mark, and then

grabbing the mark and moving it to fine tune the distance and bearing.

Seems to consistently crash when you move the mark closer to the vessel. distances around 1/2 an hour ahead of the vessel when you shorten those up and wobble around a bearing bang shell goes the way of the dodo.

By crashing I mean the program terminates no errors on the screen or nothing drops the window shell. It looses the mark you just dropped when you do a restart.

Enjoying the product and the bleeding edge is better than many commercial products folks something to be proud of.

All the best

Ron Southworth

Re: Open CPN Beta 3.3.827

Ron...

Thanks for the report.

3.3.827 is the working Alpha sandbox, and not really ready for Beta testing. Its called 827 just to distinguish it from the official Beta 3.3.814.

It recommended that you stick with 3.3.814 until something more modern is available officially, unless you really like the bleeding edge.

However, I do appreciate specific comments on the sandbox code, and I will take a look at your crash soonest. I think I can see what is going on here.

Thank again
Dave

Re: Open CPN Beta 3.3.827

Hi Dave,

Your bleeding edge is better than many in production houses I have seen about the place. Certainly I have more stable versions if I am taking to the water but while I am pottering here at home I keep on the edge. Obviously not intended as criticism at all just letting you know I found something "unusual". I still have a fanciful idea when I get some spare time in coding mode to do some clever sailing type plug-in stuff you know like working out tacking on a given course or heading and some other performance optimization stuff. Never seem to find the time at the moment but I will I am certain.

Thanks and I will keep rolling with the bleeding edge learning how to do good code from observation and see what happens when I get time to play trigonometry functions with the NMEA data and a few things like that .

Ron

Re: Open CPN Beta 3.3.827

There are several other issues with 827 and I suggest not to upload very early alphas to github until there is a beta. Since there are some people compiling by their selfes it might be irritating.

With cm93 I see in 827 alpha blue bars in a fish farm e.g. and scrolling region does not work.

Hi I dont see the problem unless there is a concern that it reduces confidence in the product sometimes when someone is trying something it is good to get it to a few folks to uncover un-intended problems early in the development cycle.

I am personally still open to rolling alpha's I think it is very clear that you should only be using stable versions for production (under way)

Thanks for all the great work

Ron

Gerhard...
There are also some people developing that code who for some weird reasons need to share it... The master branch is for them.

Found the bug for smeared fishing areas.
Fixed and committed to github.

For the other bug "scrolling region does not work"...
Can you give us a lat/lon, and other info to reproduce?

Thanks
Dave

Thank you Dave,

I've rolled it into my sandbox test rig and can confirm the crash is indeed no longer happening.

As I said previously awesome stuff.

Back to lurking mode till I can find another really obscure bug. Thanks for some awesome stuff.

Ron

Dave,

I have had implemented the diffs from between 814 to 827 and remarked the above anomalies with cm93 December 2011. I am at Monastir, Tunisia, 35 46N, 10 50E. I then deleted these diffs to switch back to 814 and everything works fine again.
It is difficult for me to find out the scrolling problem. Do you have any hint where I can set a break point to see what is happening there?
Actually I am using wxWidgets 2.9.5 as of 18. August and Mac OS X 10.8.4 and Xcode 4.6.3 with LLVM 4.2, Debugger LLDB.

Gerhard

I have found the bug (my own fault) and updated the code with the diffs up to 1. September.
Everything is fine now and scrolling and scaling in/out is even smoother.

Thanks

Gerhard
