217. This is new. Double-click on an ENC feature, and see the new Query dialog. Nice...
219. 64 bit Mac builders note: If you want to build for a 64 bit target on a 64 bit machine, do $cmake -DCMAKE_OSX_64=true ..
225. Correcting a specific problem seen with eeepc running linux. Let me know if there is any other problems with dialog layouts on the various platforms, especially smaller platform screens....
227. Only affects waypoints with latitude less than +/- 10 degrees.
229. Now supports hot-plugging of USB GPS receivers like BU353 puck using gpsd on linux platforms.

Next Beta will be "Feature Freeze", leading to the release of OpenCPN 3.0 near June 1. If you have a Feature Request outstanding that you really, really want, and is not too disruptive, please call my attention to it.

Thanks, and have fun

Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1705

The Ubuntu packages are all compiled on Ubuntu version 12.04.
Please report how these packages works on earlier Ubuntu versions.

There are two different 32 bits packages. The main(first) is compiled by Dave and the second one by me. For some reason they are not exactly the same. Read The Precise Pangolin or Ubuntu 12.04 -thread for more info.
If nothing else the second package is a touch smaller than the first.
Please report your experiences.

Thomas

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1705

217 double click object query, wow what an improvement VV nice

Also a good clean up on scaling in and out.

one point though the traffic separation arrows shows in a north direction rather than 85 deg & 265 deg as per their object query (not certain if they showed correctly before though)

dutch chart ir65w83I source edition 7 update 23/3/412 available from


ftp://www.risserver.nl/ENC/zeeland/

this address gives what the dutch refer to as level 6 data, which inclues the soundings and much more detail.

Thanks again. On my gentoo box had a minor bug in the properties dialog for ECN. The OK button is not lined right. (see screenshot).
Hot plugging with gpsd works nicely.

Win7 running without hick-ups for the moment.
Spanish version looks fine.

As suggested by Happy: what about a well visible indicator for "track mode ON".
Thinking about a green "T" alongside with the GPS status perhaps.

The 64 bits version crashes after clicking OK in the first dialog.

So far my locally compiled 32 bits runs OK. Not really tested though.

I'm observing pretty ugly crashes when the PLIB data is not found.

Renaming opencpn.conf, sorted out the crash.
Here is the bad conf file.
