OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Status

Hello Beta Testers...

The OpenCPN Beta Test Program for 2.6.xxxx leading to the next Release is just about ready to startup.

One thing remains: As you may surmise, I am cruising full time and am chronically short of internet bandwidth.
So, we need a volunteer to assist in building and uploading the Windows version of OCPN 2.6.
Volunteer should have good internet connection, some experience with Microsoft Visual studio, and a big heart. The time commitment is not large, but is periodic. If our previous experience is a guide, we can expect a new Beta release every two weeks, or so.

Let me know if you can help.
Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave,

What about using Amazon Web Services with a windows AMI to do the build, pretty easy to script, doubt the cost is that much when running it only for builds

No experience with Visual Studio but otherwise available. How hard can it be?

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Status

Hello Dave ,

let me begin by thanking you for this wonderfull software , I am using it constantly in combination with AIS and Gribs.
Great stuff.
But could you tell us if you're working on an android version ?
Immaging having OpenCPn on a tablet, man that would be awsome.

Thanks and kind regards from Europe.
