OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Ahoy, OpenCPN'ers...

OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227 will soon be available for download from opencpn.org.

Monitor the opencpn.org Downloads page to find and download the latest Beta version binaries.....

Source is available now on sourceforge git repo.

Changelog

89. Correct CTRL +/- zoom behavior.
90. Correct GRIB PlugIn rendering (FS#693)
91. Implement rudimentary PlugIn intercom system. Thanks, Pavel
92. Implement enhanced Route/Track rendering options (FS#680) Thanks Pavel
93. Correct detection of AZERTY keyboard on fr_FR systems. (FS#670)
94. Correct Toolbar misplacement after Options dialog on linux systems.
95. Correct CTRL modifier for wheel zoom on linux
96. Improve OpenGL text rendering (FS#666)(FS#664)
97. Disable OpenGL Stencil buffer for Intel graphics chips.(FS#666)
98. Correct AIS target heading rendering when speed is low and scale is small (FS#694)
99. Correct build conditions for 64bit linux systems (FS#689)
100. Correct Chart close/open persistence logic (FS#691)
101. Implement WVS chart rendering for OpenGL

Release 2.6.1227

Notes:

This Beta release has relatively few items. A couple are critical, though, especially the OpenGL/Vista/Intel bugs that continue to distract. It will be nice to get these swatted, so that we can move on to implementing some more FeatureRequests.

91. Required a bump of PlugIn API to 1.06. As a result, existing PlugIns other than Grib and Dashboard will require external rebuilding.

Please note that I have not included any new language translations in the 2.6 Beta program. Managing 18+ .po file submission every Beta release takes a lot of time, and is better spent elsewhere.
We will come back to language updates as we near production Release this spring.

Don't forget to check and update "Your" Flyspray issues. We have some old ones on there that I think are long resolved. As usual, I would like to have the original poster request closure of the resolved items, instead of closing them myself without feedback.

Thanks, and good luck
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

All!
Ubuntu binaries are now available !

Dave!

Everything I am able to test, works - Good one!

#94
Funny thing on the eeepc. First time I open the Toolbox + OK the Toolbar jumps to the middle. Next time it goes back to default position and continues to work as intended.

#95 well not exactly.....but smooth zooming is not working for vector charts, panning is OK.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Thomas....

Smooth zoom is disabled for all vector charts. Seems too slow, at least on my hardware.....

chcanv.cpp:4616

Code:
bool ChartCanvas::ZoomCanvasIn(double factor)
{
      bool b_smooth = g_bsmoothpanzoom & g_bopengl;

      if(!VPoint.b_quilt)
      {
            ChartBase *pc = Current_Ch;
            if(pc->GetChartFamily() == CHART_FAMILY_VECTOR)
                  b_smooth= false;
      }
      else
            b_smooth = g_bsmoothpanzoom & !m_pQuilt->IsQuiltVector();
.
.
}
You could hack around in this code and experiment, if you are bored with NGA chart calibration....

Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Hello Dave,

ASUS 10.inch, XP SP3. OCPN 2.6-1227.

I loaded the CM93 and various maps "kap" GE2KAP made ​​with the software. They have almost identical scales.

Quilting : On
Use OpenGL : On

With "quilting on", we find that some charts (full lines) are not displayed. If I click on a chart of a line not displayed, the charts displayed on this line too.

It should be normal for all the charts are displayed without click on the Bar charts.

Gilletarom.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Hello,

I wanted to try to put all the plug-ins. But they do not appear.

Maybe it wanted?

Ok Dave.

Other problem :

With "Use OpenGL" On, I chose to display all the details with the CM93 slider
I choose to show all what can be displayed such as the names of the lighthouses or buoys.

No text appears.

With Use OpenGL Off, all texts appears

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Dave...
We have a small problem:
Code:
extern "C"  DECL_EXP void SendPluginMessage( wxString message_id, wxString message_body );
in ocpn_plugin.h got lost somehow while you've been applying the messaging patch... Pretty important line

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Running portably XPsp2
notable improvement!to CTRL+ (-/+) Very nice!

I can't see there's a difference when smooth zoom checked or not.zoom works incrementally tapping keys and pretty smooth when holding em checked or not.So what's it good for?
Open GL does make for kaps a little blurry when too far from their scale but this has been noted before and who cares.
Ibmt42 and itsATI card are irrelevant to OpenGL, I suppose,and maybe needs a fresh driver, but opengl now actually works with cm93.Not with kapsthough- they are.sloww to refresh with GL.
The Dell420 works better and better everyday in every way...whatever Dale Carnegie said is what I mean!

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

As far as tested , everything works well now . Thanks Dave
-All zoom keys and wheel including mouse wheel and Ctlr , CM93 rendering ,CM93 texts , Gib display ...
Just a problem with Grib plug-in : zooming and dragging become very slow with wind barbs displayed and opengl on .
It is normal when opengl deselected
It is true with Vista/Intel (R) 4 Shipset and xp/Intel 945 and CM93 and/or BSB charts
Regards
Jean Pierre

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

sorry to late to edit my post here :
OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1223

I'll copy it here again as I don't think that anyone will read the posts for build 1223.
-------------------------------------------------------

I tried to find the reef where the freighter Rena crashed about 10 miles off Tauranga/Newzeeland.



could be here: Feature Class: UWTROC

Position: 037 34.9403 S 176 21.5123 E

try to find this in cm93. it's quite hard to find !!!! and often invisible depending on your depht settings. normally just visible as the white X.

I don't know if this is really Rena's position but anyway it looks dangerous and is not really easy to identify as underwater rock.




comparable fault I found already in 2009 and stated here,

Feature Class: WRECKS

Position: 057 21.4153 N 017 09.1334 E

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1227

Hello

I still have a partial screen refresh problem (only using OpenGL) when first mousing over a route (pic #1). Zooming with the mouse will then only affect the area where the text was displayed (pic #2)

Latest Vista, ATI RS780M

Happy New Year to the OpenCpn crew and all users!
