CVS

All...
CVS currently (17 Sept 2315Z) broken. Look for fixup later tonight.



LeaseOnLife:
Can't reasonably fix the inactive hot-keys during AIS dialog display.

This is Windows talking here. Dialogs take the keyboard focus because that's how Windows works. You will notice that the Alert dialog traps the arrow keys for control box /button navigation. Without capturing keystrokes at the system-wide level, no other window can see those keystrokes. System-wide keystroke filtering is considered unfriendly in a multi-tasking O/S like Windows or linux..... Now, if we owned all the hardware and all other apps running, it would be a different story, and this may someday be the case if we can find the right hardware platform for a dedicated opencpn cockpit box.....Sorry for now.

Dave,

understood!

May I suggest a work around: Add a button on the AIS Alert window to send window to the background. (Maybe we can just use the "acknowledge" button)

Then add a hotkey to the main opencpn window to re-activate the alert window(s).

If ALT-TAB would work, I would be ok too, but the alert window does not show up in the task switcher.

I just need a way to be able to judge the situation (using the chart) then go back to the alert window to continue to watch CPA / TCPA and I want the MMSI/Name for a possible call.

I'm working on this. I've been researching for a dedicated opencpn os.
Hopefully we can accomplish 2 goals here.

1. Have an opencpn usb stick that boots straight into opencpn as an emergency backup for your existing computer
2. Specially compile opencpn-usb packages for small, low powered computers.

Perhaps busybox or slax would be a good base to start with. If anybody else is interested in this or has any ideas, please PM me.

Will

Dave,

With the updated ship i've been changing chcanv.cpp

changing line #1632 to:
Code:
wxImage os_image = _img_ship_green->ConvertToImage();
and commenting out line #1638 and adding 2 more
Code:
// os_image.RotateHue(.12);
wxImage os_image_red = _img_ship_red->ConvertToImage();
os_image = os_image_red;

Build 917

Folks...
Opencpn v 1.3.3 Build 917 is available at the usual location.

opencpnbeta

Changelog:
74. Correct Right-Click logic after DeleteAllRoutes
75. Correct Ship Draw logic for refresh box in Windows
76. Update Ownship icon shape/colors
77. Modify hotkeys for screen brightness and auto-follow toggles.
78. Modify ScaleIn/Out hotkeys to F7/F8
79. Correct Route->SendToGPS logic.
80. Implement CM93 chart zoom detail control slider.
81. Correct AIS Target Query dialog initial poition.
82. Re-enable GPSD input.
---------Publish Beta 1.3.3 Build 917---------

CVS updated

Notes:
77/78. Notice new hotkeys, described in ?->Help

80. This is new, and sorta cool. In Toolbox->VectorCharts, you will find a slider which sets the zoom detail for cm93 charts. This is in response for requests for more chart detail (larger scale cell) at any particular on-screen scale.

Positive values give more detail, but at a cost:
a. It simply takes longer to render larger scale charts covering more screen real estate.
b. There will be more instances of grey (NODATA) areas surrounding the larger scale charts as you zoom out. We don't quilt....
c. It can become dramatically slower if high detail is specified, and chart outlines are requested. In this case, we have to read a lot more cells to get their outlines.

Conversely, negative values give less detail. Zooms are faster.

Values may be user specified, so this stuff is under user control. I've been satisfied with the performance and detail at a level of +2.


Guys, I think this is it.

Absent any real show stoppers, this is the 1.3.4 Release Candidate (RC). Show stoppers would be related crashes from multiple users, serious typo errors, and install/make problems.

We need to release now. 82 items on the changelog is really too many for good program management. We have hundreds of users on 1.3.2 with no cool icons, no tracking, etc., etc..... They need the new stuff.

I know there are neat features un-implemented, and a very few unexplained crash scenarios. But it is adequate for daily use, and for all code there comes a time.

Thanks for all your help. One more time around the block.

Dave

maybe the CM93 zoom function (nice) would be more comfortable, quicker access, in the mouse-right click window/menue. appears only when a CM93 is displayed.

crashed when 1. time used and closed window. seems crashes come mostly on my system after a certain time of oCPN idle running and starting any action, DrWtsn reports by email later, after some more crashes ;-)

A user guide is being compiled by member Roel on this forum who has been ill. I hope this will be released as a wiki at some stage to make it user-contributable.

Re: "Delete Waypoint crash" confirmed on ubuntu 8.10

I probably contributed to the too large changelog for this release.
But the requested features do work, thank you!:
77, works, with four levels for the dimmer
78, works, also fixes the bug where I had to hit F10 twice to scale in
81, works,

80: Very cool!

I also like the new icon in the xp taskbar.

Same crash here after during deletion of second waypoint in a route. Everything else I tried was WAY perfect Dave! Thank you all for this fantastic work of art! Chris

Windows XP prof, all patched up! :-)

Dave..

You will be pleased to know I am not able to crash deleting or removing waypoints
in my Vista Home setup. I will keep on testing.

Anybody else with Vista had a crash?
