OpenCPN Version 4.8.4 Released

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
---------------------

21 April, 2018

OpenCPN Version 4.8.4 Released


The OpenCPN Development Team is proud to announce the release of OpenCPN Version 4.8.4

This version is a maintenance release of OpenCPN.

OpenCPN is a cross platform electronic navigation system (ECS) supporting a variety of cartography standards and hardware interface protocols. Versions are available for Linux, Windows, Macintosh, and ARM computer architectures.
Since widespread introduction in 2008, OpenCPN has gained a solid reputation worldwide.

OpenCPN is running on hardware from tiny Raspberry Pis with 4" screens up to networked workstations. Specific user scenarios and needs are easily accommodated by using the Plug-in architecture and the wide scope of user settings.
A responsive international user and developer community together with integrated documentation help make installation and use of OpenCPN a pleasure.

Some of the features of OpenCPN include

Quilted Raster(RNC) and Vector(ENC) digital chart display
Full compliant support for official vector charts in S-57/S-63 format and InlandENCs
Industry standard GPS receiver interfacing, with "moving map" on-screen vessel tracking
AIS receiver interfacing with configurable target safety monitoring
Integrated Route, Track, and Waypoint database, with industry standard Import/Export capabilities
Tide and Current prediction, with on-screen overlay of predicted data.
Broad International Language support
PlugIn architecture allowing on-going third-party functional enhancements


OpenCPN is released under the GPLV2 license. The executable program and its source code are available for immediate, free, and unlimited download from github.com, and several other public sources.

As a successor to OpenCPN Version 4.8.2, OpenCPN Version 4.8.4 contains several incremental corrections and improvements across all platforms.

We hope you enjoy OpenCPN Version 4.8.4, and look forward to your continued feedback and support.

More information is available at opencpn.org

The OpenCPN Development Team
Dave Register, Lead Developer

On Windows 10 the chart downloader fails to update due to not finding the internet connection.

Confirmed, the list of the CA certificates slipped out of the Windows setup package and it will have to be rebuilt. Only https downloads are affected, stuff not using encryption, like NOAA charts, works fine.

All users...

There was an error uploading the Windows setup program for OpenCPN 4.8.4.

Error is now fixed. You may re-download the corrected setup program now.

Sorry for the mixup.

SkipperEarly, do you really think this is needed? Don't most users instinctively shut down the program first?
If you really think this is necessary, enter it into Tracker as a "Feature Request" and vote for it and get enough votes so it has more than 7 votes to be moved to the "vetted feature requests" list.

- actually I did not make this a great issue but was just logging it, so that, whoever writes the install program is aware and may/or may not cater for it. Its usually standard behavior in install programs.

To "tracker it" seems overkill for me - I may be wrong

Xenial = Ubuntu 16.04
Trusty = Ubuntu 14.04
Precise = Ubuntu 12.04

They are different versions of the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

You provide zero information so nobody can tell you what you should download. So to start with: Do you know what operating system you are using?

Mint 18.3 is based on Ubuntu Xenial (16.04).

You should not need to download anything manually, opening a terminal and running
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:opencpn/opencpn
sudo apt-get update
will add the repository to your system and OpenCPN will become available for installation and later update as any other software.
