You're not up-to-date.
The current beta is already 526a.
You can download (my self-compiled) exe here: OpenCPN Downloads | OpenCPN.de
(it is just the EXE file - so you must have version 2.1.0 already be installed to just replace the exe)

OpenCPN Beta Build 527a

Hi testers!

OpenCPN Version 2.1.0 Beta Build 527a is ready for download:

Note the new link:
http://opencpn.org/downloads/beta/opencpn_210_setup.exe

Changelog:

132. Correct Depth unit indicator in quilt mode.
133. Correct for chart skew values of both polarities.
134. Update chart info window for S57 ENCs.
135. Implement NMEA GGA sentence.
136. New Icons, thanks Will.
137. Correct quilt logic in Course-Up mode.
138. Correct StackUp/StackDown tool logic for quilting.
139. Correct for "Meters and decimeters" display
140. Correct RouteManager "To" field contents update.
141. Final icons
142. Add "Start/End" tags to GPX route/track output files
143. Save "viz/inviz" tag on GPX Routes and Tracks
144. Switch back to low definition on Course-Up chart rotation.
145. Implement CourseUp/NorthUp toggle by clicking on compass rose icon.
146. Implement support for newest gpsd library functions in linux builds.

---Release Beta 527a---


CVS updated.

Notes:

144. We needed to switch back to low-res rotation model for performance reasons, especially for toolbar access. This is an opportunity for improvement.....
145. Standard north-up icon is blue in color. Derived from the red icon. Course-up mode or skewed charts show the previous red icon, rotated appropriately. Clicking on the icon itself toggles between Course-up and North-up (or natural-up for skewed charts.)
146. Linux users now have the most modern gpsd libary support. If the library is available, the config process will detect it and link appropriately. Please test if you can. I think we will have some version dependency problems to iron out.

cmake: linux users are encouraged to move away from automake/autoconf tools and toward cmake. Auto-tool scripts will not be maintained on CVS after this release, and will be removed in due course.

i18n: Final .pot and .po files are available on CVS server. Please email your updates to me directly, email address in the toolbox->authors tab. I'll integrate is I get them checked in. With the new cmake process, I plan to remove the .mo files from the CVS server, since they are a make product.

debian: linux users are encouraged to build and test the .deb package from the cmake scripts. $make package I plan for this .deb package to be the one uploaded to sourceforge for general download on this release. I suspect there may be dependency problems yet on this......


This is really the last call for annoying but easy to fix bugs. I consider Build 527a to be a Release Candidate.....

Thanks for all your interest and feedback
Dave

Dave et. al.,
I will try to help with testing. I am still confused by cmake. It was very easy to follow the automake/autoconf instructions. Might someone provide simple instructions for downloading the latest debian/ubuntu beta release and using cmake? Sorry for my newbie-ness.
TIA

Will...

I added code to try to catch this elusive fault.

Checkout CVS.
Rebuild.
Run without ddd (it gets in the way of my SIGSEGV catcher)

The fault will be caught if it happens, and log info produced. You may see a corrupted chart render, and that will be your clue to exit and look at the logfile. You should not see SIGSEGV, at least in this particular place....

No affect on Windows. Fault catcher is not compiled.

Good Luck
Dave

Volunteers needed....

Hi there!

Looking for a volunteer to update README and INSTALL to:

a. Remove detailed references to installation from README. Point the reader to INSTALL instead. README should be generic, not even version specific if possible.

b. Update INSTALL to reflect dropping autotools and adding cmake. Update Windows source build procedure. Talk about .debian and rpm packages as appropriate. Make it more noob friendly overall....

Here is your big chance to get on the opencpn author's list

Current (old and tired) README and INSTALL are on CVS.

Thanks
Dave
