Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

Great that the update is so quickly available. But: where can I download the Windows version?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

Just tried (compiled myself under Linux 64bit) and there seems to be a problem with the Mariner's Standard checkbox list for vector charts. I noticed more or less randomly things disappearing from the display (bridges, marks) and they re-appear when I select "Select All". One concrete example (visible e.g. in the San Francisco Bay): I'm not able to unselect "Ferry Route".

Test case:
1) open "Options"
2) select "Charts"
3) select "Vector charts"
4) select "Mariners Standard"
5) click on "Select All"
6) uncheck "Ferry Route"
7) click "Ok" => Ferry routes are still displayed
8) repeat 1-3 => "Ferry Route" is checked, but "Lake" is unchecked

So seems that the mapping from display names to internal names is broken somewhere. Have no time right now to debug, but might do so tomorrow if needed.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

The following hack (dropping the wxLB_SORT) fixes the problem, but of course results in an unsorted list (note: actually resulting list is mostly sorted, just the last 15 or so elements are unsorted).

I also used wxLB_MULTIPLE instead of wxLB_SINGLE just because that seems to be the correct choice, although even with wxLB_SINGLE multi-selects are obviously possibe (looks like a wx bug to me).

Code:
diff --git a/src/options.cpp b/src/options.cpp
index be08f11..c3b76b9 100644
--- a/src/options.cpp
+++ b/src/options.cpp

     marinersSizer->Add( ps57CtlListBox, 1, wxALL | wxEXPAND, group_item_spacing );
 
     wxBoxSizer* btnRow = new wxBoxSizer( wxHORIZONTAL );

The beta 915 and then the 919 releases were and are readily available on the Downloads page for Ubuntu and Mac users but not Windows users.

The Windows release for 915 was very delayed and it appears that it will be the same for the 919 release.

Surely it cannot be TOO hard to ensure that they are all be released together at the same time - unless there is a specific reason for not releasing the Windows version ???

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

Dougwm10...

I (and some other developers) work at the very skinny end of a long internet connection. I'm a full-time cruiser and work from my floating home. My last mile is always Wifi, and sometimes nothing at all.

At this very moment, the Wifi connection I am (legally) using precludes FTP uploads. That's their policy, and its not unusual.

Our other two Windows builders are away from the net at the moment as well.

So, no 30 MB uploads are possible at the moment. Mac and Windows versions are ready, but have no way to upload.

The only alternative to the present discomfort would be to hold back the 3.1.919 Beta until all three platforms are uploaded and ready, whenever that may be. Of course, that makes no sense at all.

So, we do the best we can do with the volunteer resources at hand.

Of course, wired Windows developers interested in becoming Release builders are always welcome to the team. Or a sufficient donation stream to enable a high bandwidth cellular connection would also help the situation.

I am sorry for the deferred Windows Release. I really want to get the Beta feedback from the 85% of OpenCPN user base on Windows. Really.

Dave

It runs fine on both XP and W7Ultimate.

Interestingly the Toolbar is the old style on W7U and the new style on XP

Many thanks for the quick work.

You can change easily under Options > User Interface.

Could be caused by you having run earlier betas on the XP machine. They defaulted to the new style.

Well I can tell you that for me it certainly was TOO hard. I was fighting 60 knot winds and howling rain all day in the marina. Both my neighbors were unattended, and poorly fendered. One was loosely moored and swung badly back and forth between me and the next yacht. We had half a meter of water ON TOP of the pier we're moored to, which was kind of good because all the boats would have crashed into the pier otherwise, now they went over it instead. Some rudders were centimeters from crushing. All the boats moving around had fenders popping out all over the place, once cleanly routed mooring lines getting stuck and snapping as a result of chafe etc etc.

Not the day to sit down and do an OpenCPN build...

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

Sounds horrendous. What part of the world are you moored at present?

BTW, we DO appreciate what the development team accomplish, in spite of limited time and resources. Many thanks!
