OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Ahoy, OpenCPN'ers...

OpenCPN Version 4.1.1022 Beta will soon be available for download from opencpn.org.

Monitor the opencpn.org Downloads page to find and download the latest Beta version binaries.....

Source is available now on github at:
https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN
Branch: master

Changelog
63. Correct and extend Raster Chart PlugIn API for revised OpenGL access methods.
64. Correct active track rendering logic to Ownship.
65. Correct cm93 region and detail level calculation logic around Longitude 0.
66. Correct longitude grid text rendering on OpenGL.
67. Correct occasional loss of toolbar during mode switches and dialog access.
68. Improve sectored light rendering performance on Windows OpenGL systems.
69. Correct Vector chart PlugIn rendering methods.
70. Implement GUI scale factor for toolbar effective on all platforms.
71. If specified, require NMEA checksums to be valid before sending sentences to PlugIns.
72. Correct initialization of Polyconic charts without embedded georef coefficients (FS#1866)
73. Modify AIS SART target acknowledge timeout policy to honor global ACK timeout (FS#1856)
74. Correct AIS Target Query dialog sizing logic
75. Correct Grid text formatting for "degree" symbol (FS#1870)
76. Extend PlugIn API for Waypoint list access.
77. Correct Dashboard context menu actions when multiple dashboards are defined.



This is not an especially large list of fixes.
However, this is an important release in that in tightens up the PlugIn API and rendering engine to allow full support of chart-type PlugIns, such as BSB4, NVC, and S63.

It also address some performance regression problems observed earlier, and some cm93 compositor problems.

Please check your Flyspray tasks, and request closure if possible.

Finally, we are closing in on Feature Freeze for OpenCPN Version 4.2 Production Release. If you have persistently annoying bugs and/or Features that you relly feel like should be part of the next Release, please surface them in the Forum or Flyspray.

Thanks, and Good Luck
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Hi all...
The download page is now updated to point to the 4.1.1022 installer packages for Windows and OS X.
The Linux packages for i386, amd64 and armhf will be ready in the beta PPA very shortly. For the kamikaze types, starting with this version we directly support the future Ubuntu LTS release, Xenial Xerus (16.04)

Happy testing

Pavel

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Hello
Build error in VS2013:
The reported error is : "cmd.exe exited with code 1" and the error handler is pointing to project: chartdldr-i18n
A message box says:
Code:
Could not find file
C:\Builds\OCPN\OpenCPN\plugins\chartdldr_pi\CmakeFiles\chartdldr-i18n
I could not find where that path way is called for.
A hint anyone?

Håkan

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

I still have disappearing toolbar problems as reported on 4.1.925 on my Dell D360 W10 Pro 64 Mobile Intel 965 graphics.

The behaviour with OpenGL on is not good
Please note the toolbar has gone from the 2nd screen shot.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Dave/Pavel,

One of the translation files has an error in git.

plugins/chartdldr_pi/po/fi.po line #184 has a missing format string somewhere.

Code:
#: src/chartdldr_pi.cpp:1030
#, c-format
msgid "Downloading chart %u of %u, %u downloads failed (%s / %s)"
msgstr "Karttojen lataaminen %u sta %u hun lataus epäonnistui (%s / %s)"

Whatever happened, today's fetch builds fine both in VS2013 and VS2010

BTW, I've got me another PC using Win10 and VS2013 so I've again followed the "Compiling - Windows" instructions on OpenCPN.org. The instruction is still very precise and everything is working excellent.

Thanks
Håkan

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Hello Dave,

On a French forum, a French user under 8.1 W, is the victim of repeated and systematic crash.

It's the only thing he said, declaring himself now "bystander" since O is chargeable under android.
This attitude is damaging to OpenCPN but if communications had been better managed at the time of the release of O for android, we would not be the.

From my side :
- no installation problem except at the "install.log" file remains empty.
- No crash under 8.1 with my Lenovo core i5, 14'.

The icons in the toolbar are too small. But the icons on the tab "Charts" in the "Options" are correct. See the screenshots below attached.
I have not changed anything in the sizes of the characters of the texts and I feel they are correct, can be a bit too small.

Nautical charts of VisitMyharbour display correctly. Raster charts brazil, OK. CM93 : Ok.

I try some plugins :

Dashboard plugins, Grib, Chartdownloader, and VDR seems to work fine.

WMM:
In the first trial:
WMM has malfunctioned. The icon of this plugin does not appear in the toolbar.
THEN:
After using the software that allows me to access my virtual disk, the WMM icon appeared in the icon bar. And WMM worked properly when I tested VDR.

NV-Verlag:
Can not display charts of NV-Verlag with O411022 but strangely not display the same charts with OpenCPN 40. The stick never lights.
I still have to do an essay about it. I will return here to talk about.

Best regards. Gilletarom.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Further to my post #4, the toolbar behaviour IS improved and I can't make it repeatably disappear, though it still vanishes sometimes when panning.

No problems with WMM PI

Install log still empty

Trying to install from PPA on Ubuntu 15-10 I get this error:

E: Impossible de corriger les problèmes, des paquets défectueux sont en mode « garder en l'état ».
It looks like those packages are not in the PPA for Ubuntu 15-10

Thanks

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

Windows 10 recent fetch but I don't know when this is initiated.
Bug report:
Toolbox Options, UI, "Play Ships Bell" from options.cpp row 4287
When the option and "Use" is checked the message box concerning ports from options.cpp row 5277 or row 5284 is shown. (My translation is equal for both!)

Good catch, the required data packages are now copied to both Wily and Xenial.
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opencpn
Should now succeed.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1022 Release

We're not on the boat right now so this is just a static test under W7. The current beta crashes immediately when I enable OpenGL. It was very slow to load the Canadian charts using the BSB4 plugin - in fact it didn't load them the first or second time I opened the software but eventually they did load. It still runs slow but it does run as long as I don't enable OpenGL.
