OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.2222 Released

Ahoy, OpenCPN'ers...

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

Release Notes:

343. This Feature Request allows one to pre-designate a specific MMSI number for special handling. The choices should be intuitive. Of particular note is the idea that one can preset the MMSI numbers of onboard Personal Locator Beacons, so that a MOB from your ownship will be signalled immediately.

349. "Earth-style" particle rendering for GRIB wind and current data. Very cool. Enable in the GRIB settings dialog, option "Particles".

350. Skewed polyconic charts near US Great lakes will require database rebuild.

Please check and clear your Flyspray issues, if possible

Thanks, and good luck

Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.2222 Released

Somehow the particle grib display doesn't work for me until I removed the stopping of the timer:

I don't see the option for the particle display.... upgraded with default settings in Windows 7. Grib plugin shows as V2.3

"Somehow the particle grib display doesn't work for me until I removed the stopping of the timer:"

I do not understand this either.

Please experiment/debug. We need to understand what is going on here, since we would like to allow PlugIns full access to the display via overlays at whatever rate desired.

If you get hung up on the shutdown sequence, that will be easy to fix. It is the apparent re-ordering of the event queue on Win8 that has me worried.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.2222 Released

Wind particles view very nice and certainly useful! Thanks!

I think it is best used to look at wind patterns over a relatively large area. For this, the particles are better seen on a not so detailed chart - usually just the background chart will suffice. Here, it would be nice if one could very easily switch off all other charts.

In other words, an empty, or "basic only" chart group would help to fully appreciate the particles view ...

Maybe this can be done today, but just now I do not see how ?

Because sadly I cannot sail more than say 100 miles a day that is somehow useless for me. However I want to see more wind arrows when zooming into the chart...

Starts immediately for me, as all the other versions. Please post your logfile so we can see in which phase the delay appears.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.2222 Released

ok, I think I got it....... :-)

Is this the correct file?? (I shortened it to only show entries from today.....

it looks as if it happens always between these points:

15:35:31: Setting Ownship Lat/Lon 37.9741, -0.6838
15:38:02: System default Language: de_DE

As the file seemed to be too big, I renamed it to .pdf type, however, it is just the plain text..... ok??

Best regards,

Uwe
