OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

Ahoy, OpenCPN'ers...

OpenCPN Version 3.1 Beta Build 802 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: beta31_stable

Changelog
19. Improve Tide/Current manager and Toolbox UI to allow multiple concurrent HARMONIC datasets.
10. Implement Toolbar icon visibility selector dialog. jesperwe
11. Correct some PlugIn toolbar icon crashes, WMM PlugIn especially.
12. Show ownship COG and HDT vectors when zoomed out (FS#842)
13. Set Traditional display style as default for upgrades and new installs.
14. Extend implementation of PlugIn message scheme.
15. Allow wmm_pi PlugIn to supply magnetic variation to system if there is no other valid source.
16. Correct handling of UNKNOWN BSB chart projections
17. Add build rules for gentoo linux (FS#853)
18. Implement copy/paste of lat/lon from Waypoint Properties and JumptToPosition dialogs. JesperWe
19. Implement double-click query for waypoints, routes, and tracks. JesperWe
20. Implement optional display of AIS target true dimensions.
21. Implement Binary (.tcd) tide/current database support.
22. Improve UI for very small scale viewports.
23. Implement new World Chart as small scale background.
24. Set default file name for GPX Route export.
25. Correct fault with creating route with existing waypoint nearby.
26. Correct handling of some S57 ENCs with ISO8559 characters embedded.
27. Improve tide/current extended dialog display

Release Beta 3.1.802

Notes:

21. This needs extensive testing. The binary (tcd) tide/current datasets are the most modern and theoretically accurate sources of data. We need to compare the results using the new tcd files against the results available from the existing .IDX harmonic files. The easiest way to do this is to run two concurrent sessions of OpenCPN, one in portable mode, with one using old .IDX data, and one using tcd data. Even better would be to run version 3.0.2 as portable, and compare with 3.1.802 using tcd data. This will test both the tcd files as well as the new internal data structures of O.
If you have particular online sources for tcd data, please share them here.

23. Source builders note: You must install OpenCPN once to establish the necessary data files to support the World Chart model. This is automatically done by the retail Windows installer.

26. If you are seeing unprintable characters in some non-US S57 ENCs, you will need this fix. Delete the associated SENC files to have then automatically rebuilt.

Thanks for your continued testing support!

Good Luck
Dave

Question Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

A couple of further comments:

18. Implement copy/paste of lat/lon from Waypoint Properties and JumptToPosition dialogs.

A Copy will copy lat + long in the format currently set in the Settings.
A Paste will try to be smart about parsing the format, and accepts *a lot* of different syntaxes. Even the GPX <wpt lat="0.00" long="0.00"> should work.

When you open the Jump To... dialog it automatically tries to parse the paste buffer and use the result if it works.

23. Implement new World Chart as small scale background.

The 3 lower resolutions of the Gshhs are included in the install, the higher res files are available at http://opencpn.org/ocpn/downloads/data/GshhsHiRes.zip
The files go in <install_dir>/gshhs
The <install_dir>wvsdata can be removed.

26. Correct handling of some S57 ENCs with ISO8559 characters embedded.

The note above is a bit off. Non-US S57 ENCs which had accented characters in strings lost those strings completely before this beta. This means that you will not see any unprintable characters in current charts, you will see nothing at all, as the attributes (like OBJNAM or INFORM) were lost in the conversion previously.

So any non-english ENC charts where you feel there should be more text with characters like etc, delete the converted files and reconvert, and the texts should now be there.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

Hi
Thanks much for including the magnetic variation in the RMC sentence output; however , the sentence is truncated before the E or W field is output. (as seen using portmon).
Cheers
Brian

Please disregard! My settings on portmon was truncating the data. The data is there.
Thanks again for this feature. My Raymarine autopilot needs this info to track.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

Auto upgraded from 3.0.2 on Ubuntu Linux.

When main window is grabbed by a title bar and moved around on screen, some components (menu bar, gps status, chart tray) do not follow (are not being redrawn). They jump to their final locations once main window is released. Maybe not a bug, but looks weird. Will take a bit of getting used to.

Panning cursors changed appearance to white rounded triangles and are drawn on rectangular background, black for North and dark green background for other directions.

Both with and without OpenGL.

Wow. Sounds like your particular wxGTK installation has both events propagation and transparency broken. I wonder what we can do about that... Could you provide some more details on distro and exact installed versions of Ubuntu, GTK and wxWidgets?

It's not completely clear to me, but does this mean you have wxW 2.8.0?
OpenCPN needs 2.8.12.

Maybe it will be best to stop building debs for 10.04?
It is getting long in the teeth anyway..

It looks like the calculation for the old format has changed. Comparing some British stations, it's way out.
This is Dover with portable 3.0

The tcd file, of course agrees with xtide, but is also very close to other published predictions.
Note the difference in range between the 802 IDX file and the other two.

I notice similar scenarios on your side of the pond, but I have not yet checked other sources.

I confirm that tide calculation from classical format is broken in this release (pic 1 vs pic 2 with portable 3.0.2)

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

The change in the format presentation of the tides and /or current does not please me at all. You have destroy all the work I did with the European tides and current and the Canadian one. Why did you change that? Furthermore, the smooth panning and zooming can not be used anymore (Windows version) and it load a lot upon changing chart, the updatig is too long It was Ok in the prior version.
Thanks and Best regards.

Can you be a bit more specific? Exactly what changes in the new version do you refer to?
