Hi Development team,
Thanks for a great collection of work.
I am hoping to develop some sail performance tool(s) (plugin most likely), once I get back up to coding speed - not done regular programming work for more years than I care to admit. I am presently working with the math and trying various algorhythms for accuracy vs performance
I have been testing Beta 3.1.1105 for about a month now on linux
UBUNTU 12.04 LTS using the CM93 V 2 Charts
In setting things up (e.g. finding suitable NMEA
instrumentation simulation software) to be able to do justice in testing this version is stable in what testing I have been performing.
I am hoping to continue to use the program's NEMA connection feature that uses UDP and network traffic. which has proved to be a real good way to get to know the program and some of the various OS quirks along the way. After going thru the various FAQ etc I discovered the "final problem" with this feature "not working for me" on UBUNTU required the iptables to be flushed clear.
The standard tables are overly complicated, when I figure out a fix to the iptables "problem" I will let you know the necessary mods to make it work under that platform with that configuration.
So in working out where the issues were I have found that the packaged up version recently released 3.1.1206 under windows or Linux
UBUNTU 12.04 LTS does not see the NMEA
UDP sentences. The USB Garmin GPS
support works well with windows. UBUNTU - I am still sorting outthe garmin
I have downloaded the latest beta from git in an attempt to look at compile options / compare the two versions however what I have downloaded via git comes up with compile errors sadly.
A fresh snapshot un -updated 3.1.1105 downloads and compiles successfully.
The latest beta screen
perfomance appears to be much improved however without the UDP feature enabled I cannot do any real soak testing with my setup at least.
I hope this feedback is helpful and once again thanks for what looks like a great product from where I have been sitting so far. Eagerly awaiting the time in the not so distant future when I can try her out in the water
