The sunrise/sunset instrument will still cause a crash.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

In instrument.cpp line 422 a sunset value greater than 24 can result in certain locations. Checks to ensure that sunrise and sunset times are between 0 and 24 fixed the problem.

It appears that the original code was intended for local time and not universal time.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

Hoi Dave,
I'm having a problem whit the toolbox here.
When opening the toolbox, I cant change tabs unless the position of the toolbar is somewhere midscreen where it is (partly) covered by the toolbox window. When toolbar is 'covered' it will disappear when opening toolbox, otherwise it stays visible.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

Works great!(XP)
Compliment:I think I note some improvement in my old version cm93's.The depth highlight line seems better too.
Compliment:No gps window thingy problem.By the way,when I installed 612 to the boat- beater laptop,this never happened...and on that PIII processor with a usb gps or the ol magellan serial,O (612) worked wonderfully well.

PS thanks,Netsurfer for those fast win install packs!

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

Hello Beta Testers....

I am slashing through the Flyspray tasklist, closing tasks which I think are resolved. In order to avoid hasty decisions on my part, please help by requesting a closure on YOUR tasks if you also think they are resolved.

Remember, one objective of the Beta program is to drive the tasklist to zero if possible.

We can release 2.5 with open tasks, but its not really good practice to keep "kicking the can down the road", as the economists say....

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

maybe you like to include this in the very last moment:

FS#246 : Search function for objects (e.g., islands)


thanks for all you have done already !

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 620

I'm still getting a cmake error when trying to compile 620 on Ubuntu 11.04 amd64:

missing: GTK2_GLIBCONFIG_INCLUDE_DIR

What package is it included with?

Can you export your problem route(s) to a gpx file and upload it here?
