Hello testers and coders!
Break time is over. Back to work, ye scurvy dogs
We are planning the feature set and release date of OpenCPN
Version 3.2, and we need some input.
The Feature Request thread on this Forum is of course huge. The Flyspray Feature Request tasklist contains 188 items. It is pretty much impossible to prioritize these lists without some input regarding the universality of features desired, and then some notion of impact or difficulty of execution.
Here is what we are planning so far:
1. Release Date: Mid September, 2012
2. Incremental bug-fixes, as they appear.
3. Revamped GUI to allow user selectable Icon sets and layout (i.e. "skinning" of the GUI) In process, thanks to jesperwe and sethdart.
4. Enhanced Tide/Current support, allowing modern digital xtides database support.
5. Enhanced NMEA
source selection and redirection/repeating.
That's what we know so far.
So, sharpen up your pencils and bring to this forum your wishlist of the two or three most desired Features, with your own use scenario in mind.
Think of this as a "Virtual focus group". I'd rather hear "I would like to see...." than "I think people would like to see..."
Looking forward to your input.
