Release 2.6.1609

Notes:

163: For those having trouble with OpenGL on Vista, sailorF54 take note...

179. Especially important to be tested by those using user defined ownship icon.

Don't forget to check and update "Your" Flyspray issues.
Lacking feedback, I will be summarily dismissing some older tasks as "Finished" if I cannot reproduce them.

The object of this game is to drive that task list down to near zero before Release, or at least understand the implications of any bugs (features) we decide to not fix.


Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1609

v. 1609 seems to work fine on Vista.. Thanks a lot fellers.....

My POI links now activates.
AIS targets are visible but needs more testing to see if they remain.

I seem to have lost the GE plugin. Is it not compatible with this version?

sailorF54....

Thanks for the log listings. Is this the entire log contents as relates to OpenGL?

And, just so I keep my bugs straight, there is hang/crash on switching to OpenGL with raster chart displayed, every time?

Dave

Tore...
Make sure you have the new build of the GE plugin from https://github.com/downloads/nohal/O...i16_v09_pi.dll

The one linked from the official site is not compatible with the new betas.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1609

Tore....

Check your logfile. There should be some indication of "incompatible PlugIn" for GE PlugIn. c.f. Item # 173

Code:
173.  Update PlugIn logic to preclude loading obsolete PlugIns
Thanks
Dave

Yes, the log stops here when the program hangs (no computer crash; I have to stop the process)

Yes, every time, with kap charts from different suppliers. Also when cold starting with OGL on.

Dave
BTW, I could not find a driver upgrade for the ATI Radeon I am using. Last one was in 2009.

Own ship pointing in wrong direction on skewed charts

Hi Dave, team

Boat at standstill, OpenCPN orienting the own ship icon per heading sentences from NMEA:
  • Picture 261609-01-North-Up: N-Up chart, orientation of own ship OK
  • Picture 261609-02-North-Up: slightly skewed chart, orientation of own ship slightly wrong
  • Picture 261609-03-North-Up: chart skewed by ~120deg, orientation of own ship is wrong by ~120 deg.
OpenGL is off

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1609

....that's going to be a hard one to duplicate, LeaseonLife!
I for one haven't any skewed charts for my gpsPosition! plus, my ownship swings around when (absolutely) stationary whatever chart I use...

Dave, thanks for fixing XPwindow focus! It is actually a bigger improvement than I thought it would be!

Very good, but please don't show the dialog for test messages.

Quote:

I suggest that test messages goes to the bottom of the list. As is now it's on top among MOB and distress calls.

Just to keep tabs on things, as Pjotr seems to have spotty Internet connection.

I suppose that #177 deals with Pjotrs post #103 in the 1524 thread?

Have you looked at Pjotrs #84 OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524?

If you like I ca test further and enter issues in the tracker.
