I heartily endorse Charlie's comments. The application does everything well and is a great credit to Bdbcat and all the developers. Obviously Bdbcat never sleeps and has almost mythical powers of coordination of others' efforts! Thank you all very much.

Many thanks Dave for your hard work.
2.3 just rocks.

We discussed this problem a while back, and could not pinpoint the problem but making sure that Ubunbtu is fully up to date helped me and a few other users.

Manimaul withdrew his 64 bitpackage and I uploaded mine......
There could be a problem running this package on anything than Ubuntu 10:10 as glibc has been upgraded recently, and the package is compiled against the latest version.

You can temporarily solve your problem by creating the missing directory/file structure manually, if everything else fails.

Reports on experiences with this 64 bit package is welcome.

Thanks again Dave et al for developing a truly great nav. prog.
I am personally grateful for the addition of the adjustable filter in the AIS Target listing as I normally have access to more than 20.000 targets in our Siitech network which previously disabled OpenCPN when accessing the AIS Target listing. Thanks a bunch!

Nice with at new release, congratulations
BUT, the source package is 77.8MB, vs 16.2 .deb!? That really can not be all source!

Plugin build problem

Hi There

Very excited to find the plugin enhancement, I looked ath this over a year ago to integrate instruments, the plugin concept solves that.

I have downloaded and built 2.3.0 from source and everything looks good until I try to use the plugins. It seems to want them in a plugins folder in the data folder rather than build, it builds okay, makes the dll's but they are not found unless placed in the data/plugins folder. when they are I get a runtime error.

in bitmap.cpp(802): assert "image.Ok()" failed in wxBitmap::CreateFromImage() invalid image.

Am I missing something in the building and config of the plugins?

Thanks


Jon
