RC615a

Hi there...

OpenCPN Version 2.1.0 RC615a is ready.

Unfortunately, the opencpn.org site host is unable to accept uploads just now due to maintenance. I will try to get the Windows Setup binary uploaded as soon as the site allows.

CVS is updated.

Changelog:
186. Correct Single Chart Mode switch logic for chart type change.
187. Correct AIS COG line draw logic for case when target and CPA are both offscreen.
188. Tweak AIS Target list dialog
189. Include Nohal's latest S52 PLIB symbolization rule set.
190. Modify AnchorWatch to allow setting watch for any waypoint closer than 0.5NM from ownship.
191. Modify About->Help to access help_en_US.html, help_de_DE.html, etc. depending on system locale.
192. Change locale loading location, adjust Windows Setup Application to suit.
193. Allow Lookahead Mode in north-up orientation
194. Fix a couple of Route/Waypoint delete bugs.

Notes:
191. Using the new scheme documented elsewhere. The help_en_US.html included in the Beta is old, and comes from the 1.3.6 Wiki. It is just for testing. If any testers can hack up a localized html of any sort in order to test the search logic, that would be good. An example could be called help_fr_FR.html, etc..... and placed in the doc directory.

192. This is thanks to a tip from SethDart. Regularizes Windows and linux builds. Better.....

193. Big Duhhhh here. Why didn't I think of that?

I'm off to sea for 2 days....

Good Luck.
Dave

SethDart....

Locale stuff:
I chose option 2. We don't (yet) use CPack for the Windows installer, so I just made the necessary changes to the packager that I am using.

One point. Windows XP, at least, wants <lang> instead of <locale> in its directory tree. So there will need to be conditional clauses in cmake script when we get CPack running.

Other:
I think the empty chart directory bug is resolved. Please check you scenario again....

Thanks for the tips. Insightful and useful as usual.

Dave

The text display has been replaced by the info box upon mouseover as you describe. This is all part of chart quilting mode:

- Chart previews are shown upon mouseover on the tab below when quilting is off only

- When quilting is on you should always be shown the best charts for your viewport anyhow, so there isn't much point in previewing them.

- Instead, the chart is highlighted in pink on the viewport in quilting mode

..a fervent plea for a user selectable console window showing lat/lon, SOG, COG, Eta to waypoint and TTG.
There is a pop-up window displaying that data in route mode.

This is quite a common request, and the free software implementation gippy by dev team member manimaul may well become a modular/integral part of opencpn at some stage (currently linux only).

Otherwise, I suggest you use the polarcom dials (on windows, instead of navmonpc) as you could make them small, semi-transparent and 'always on top' to achieve the desired effect.

degrees, not length, for recommanded tracks

Nothing more than a small detail: The unit for the ORIENT data on recommended track RECTR should be degree (°), not length (m)

Great program! Using Version 2.1.0 Build RC613a on Ubuntu 10.04, turn chart quilting on but seems to turn itself off all the time. Happened on earlier versions too. Any ideas?

Bouy vs Buoy

In Waipoint editor I can see "Bouy Type A" (src/routeman.cpp:1054) shouldn't it be "Buoy Type A"? Probably a typo but I found it four times in this file so I'm not sure

But than you should also rename the files;

#include "bitmaps/bouy1.xpm"
#include "bitmaps/bouy2.xpm"
#include "bitmaps/oilbouy.xpm"

to be consequent again

Details shown in MaxSea but not in OpenCPN

http://www.moree.nl/OpenCPN/MaxSea1.jpg
http://www.moree.nl/OpenCPN/opencpn1.jpg

Here two screenshots of the same location (between easter island and Isla Sala I Gomez). Same data set (CM93 2010). MaxSea shows a depth figure with the depth contour, OpenCPN shows the depth contour but not the depth value

Chart outline not seen with CM93 data set

On http://moree.nl/OpenCPN/OpenCPN2.PNG
You see the screenshot in OpenCPN with the chart outlines already visible (USA coast and Spain areas). I do not know which chart set this is. All I know that this kind of info is lacking with the CM93 set.

The smaller scales (large area) charts have many details missing which is of no consequenc as long as there is a chart-outline of *available* details visible. But unfortunately they are not. (MaxSea has the same problem).

I do not know if it is possible with the *Force Full Database rebuild* option in the Toolbox, to generate a full set of chart outlines that can be seen at all scales. It would make navigation with the CM93 set a hell of a lot safer.

Peter (with apologies for not being able to program myself)

More detail on *unfindable* places in CM93

Sorry but I do not know how to include screenshots in the forum comments.

I show 3 shots (via links below) of Sala I Gomez 26 27.5 S 105 27.7 W

You can see the first (MaxSea) showing the island to the west of Easter Island.
The second shot shows OpenCPN, you can zoom in whatever you want but you will NOT find the island

UNLESS (see screen shot 3) you zoom in with your cursor EXACTLY on the right co-ordinates of the island.

1) http://moree.nl/OpenCPN/Maxsea-Gomez.png (MAXSea)
2) http://moree.nl/OpenCPN/Maxsea-Gomez.png (OpenCPN smaller scale)
3) http://moree.nl/OpenCPN/OpenCPN-Gomez-detail.png (OpenCPN detail)

Again I like to state that by simply (?) showing the outlines, at least you know there are some rocks in the way and you can zoom in at the right location.

A couple bugs with Look ahead mode:

1.) Center pixel is still used for charts available... this should be boat position when follow mode is on so the right chart is slected for view

2.) Boat is slightly off the bottom of the screen where I can only see the course predictor line (I'm using a wide-screen monitor, not sure if it has an effect)


Other useful debugging / testing info for you Linux testers:

Gippy v1.3 now includes a nmea0183 record and playback feature. Playback has speed control. A recorded departure from Nome Harbor is included. Playback at 1x speed to simulate a true to life live experience with OpenCPN.

OpenCPN does not quilt Transverse Mercator charts, and as you have a few of those in your area, I would guess that's the reason.

613a also turns off quilting whenever it changes chart types within a quilt. i believe that's fixed in 615, although i haven't installed that yet.

test 615 Window

Hi Dave
Wish you good sailing ...
and many thanks once more for the new beta
loaded cvs and built with any problem
two points :
1 ) Look head mode in north up mode : seams to work but not yet tested in navigation .
The point is when disabling the mode , the boat is replaced in the center of the screen but the screen is not refreshed . (see shot 615-5)
2) Routes with common wpoints
To explain the problem , I created two routes : first route 1 with wpts 001,002,003,004. and then route 2 with wpts 001,002,0031,0032,004,006
001,002,004 are common wpts
If I activate route 1 , only non common legs are red colored (shot 615-1) . If I set route 2 invisible by route manager , all the route 1 is now red colored
If I set route 1 invisible by route manager , a right click on any common wpts or common legs (on route 2) does not propose the right context menu (shots 615-2 ,615-3,615-4) particularly in this last shot you can see it's impossible to activate the wpt or "next in route"
I hope I have been clear ..
best regards
Jean Pierre
