Beta 2.2.1111 windows XP sp 3.
Right after each start up of the programme, I get those weird and unwanted track lines from AIS targets, when the AIS tracking function is in use. Maybee there should be some sort af delay in the tracking function in order to make the AIS info settle?

Yes something is wrong in this area. I still see the route, but most wpt:s are gone, after reversing.

tiersp, Thomas...
yes, the new GPX code in 1111 has a couple of problems. Patches already submitted to Dave, so stay tuned for the next beta.

Hi

If nobody else had the problem described in my post 348, just disregard it.
I believe that I have found that my Belkin USB to LAN hub gives some corrupted AIS data in the upstart phase. After unchecking the automatic start of Open CPN. in the Belkin device all is back to normal, so far.

198. PlugIns now utilize their own individual .po translation files. Translators are invited to edit and contribute their translations. The .po files may be found in the build tree at {opencpn root}/plugins/{plugin_name}/po

Observant readers will note the massive contributions from Jean-Eudes (sethdart) on this release. I personally have noticed some very late-night email postings, way past my normal bedtime considering time zone differences. We thank you sincerely.

Roadmap: This is "Feature Freeze" for Release 2.3.
The only changes I plan to consider are a) especially nasty bugs, and b) Language file updates.
But, of course, I'll stay flexible in the interest of a "good" release.

Happy testing!
...and Happy Thanksgiving in the US

Dave

Additional note for upgrading from 2.2.1111

Guys (and gals),

just an additional note for you who test all the betas.

The folowing instructions apply just to the users upgrading from version 2.2.1111. Others don't have to read any further.

Due to two annoying bugs which passed into 1111 the new GUID generator created IDs which were neither random enough nor unique. It is not much of a deal currently as GUIDs are used to identify objects just in a couple of places but it already caused some problems while importing and reverting routes etc. and will certainly be more important in the future.

As hopefully just a few, usually more techie users are hit, there is no auto-fix in the code to replace the "wrong" IDs and you will have to edit your navobj.xml file and the GPX files you created with version 2.2.1111 to force the new OpenCPN version regenerate GUIDs with the right level of entropy.

On Linux command line the solution is very easy, just shut down OpenCPN (which you probably already did as you are upgrading to 1124) go to your home folder and run
Code:
sed -i 's/guid/wrongguid/g' navobj.xml
And if you have GPX files you want
Code:
sed -i 's/guid/wrongguid/g' *.gpx
On Windows, you will have to open the files in a text editor of your choice (Notepad more than good) and do the replace yourself.

If you are not sure where to find navobj.xml, go to the bottom of Installing OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Sorry for the inconvenience, I promise I will try not to break stuff next time

And thanks to Dave for another great release!

Pavel

OpenCPN Version 2.2 Beta Build 1124 - AIS Target list when engaged freezes up entire program with high volume AIS targets. Reducing number of targets to a few hundred still does not permit normal operation and unable to alter the target limit setting.
Clearly only suitable for NORMAL cruising situations with a small number of targets.
My initial test counted some 20.000 targets...

I suggest the required target limit should be set from the main AIS window rather than the present default 40 nm shown in the AIS Target list which freezes up everything if clicked on too early.

Siitech's WebVTSLite only shows targets within the visible scope of the chart and gives immediate info handling a total of in excess of 20.000 targets.

How about a fuller explanation. What's a GUID? How do I recognize it in navobj.xml? How do I recognize it in the .gpx files? How do I know which guid is wrong and what it needs to be replaced with? I'm a Windows user so I'm looking at manually editing my files. What behavior will I see if I have wrong GUIDs?

Fabbian,
sorry, I thought the instructions were clear enough.
First: What you have to do is replace all the occurences of string "guid" with anything else, for example "wrongguid".

You really don't have to look for anything in the file - if you are on Windows, just open it with notepad, strike Ctrl-H (maybe varies on other language versions), write guid on first line, wrongguid on the second line and press Replace All and save the file back.

What it does it makes OpenCPN think that the objects don't have guids assigned and generate new one.

All guids generated by 2.2.1111 are considered wrong. And as there weren't guids in gpx in previous versions means, that all the guids you have to deal with are considered wrong.

GUID, in our case UUID - is a randomly generated 36 character long identifier, that tries to be unique in the whole world. More at Universally unique identifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pavel,

I am thinking about how to translate this / or make it as simple as possible for newbie users/computer newbies.
Would it not be simplest to uninstall 2.2.1111 and then install the new beta "from scratch"?

Jonas,
of course the instructions apply to the people who want to keep their data...
Other solution is to throw away your routes, tracks and waypoints if you don't need them, which can be achieved in numerous ways, one of them being reinstalation with config removal = "starting from scratch".
How many newbie users/computer newbies we have testing all the beta releases? I have no idea, but not that many is what I think. As this is really just a 2.2.1111 thing, I would just wait if/when someone really has some problem...

Pavel

Hi pavel,
Sure, you are right, most beta tester will be experienced users. But there is a thread about this on a Swedish site, and I know some people there dont speak English to well, and wanted to minmize the translation effort from my side.
Since at least one Swedish tester is going for a test trip during next week I thought it would be nice to let him know it would be good to fix this before the trip.

Thanks for your advice
/J
