Raspberry Pi2

I have been using OpenCPN for many years now and keeping up to date with the various releases on Windows. I have just bought a Raspberry Pi to help the grandchildren learn a bit of computing. I tried to load OpenCPN as an experiment and succeeded.
I was really suprised to find it was a later version than I had on my PC. It was v4.1.0, and had an extra menu bar at the top with drop down settings - good idea.
Is there a Windows version yet as it's not on the download page?

Re: Raspberry Pi2

There is no OpenCPN 4.1.0
If you built the current master source tree, you have an unstable version newer than 4.0 on your RPi, but the menu is not the difference, it is available in 4.0 on all platforms already.

Re: Raspberry Pi2 and OpenCPN 4.1.0

Thanks for the reply, I had forgotten about the 'Menu Tab'.
The version is still a question though. My log file is:

22:18:35 UTC: 2015-02-25
22:18:35 UTC: ------- Starting OpenCPN -------
22:18:35 UTC: Version 4.1.0 Build 2015-02-20
22:18:35 UTC: wxWidgets version: wxWidgets 2.8.12 Linux 32 bit wxGTK
22:18:35 UTC: MemoryStatus: mem_total: 927 mb, mem_initial: 18 mb
22:18:35 UTC: SData_Locn is /usr/local/share/opencpn/
22:18:35 UTC: PrivateDataDir is /home/pi/.opencpn

OpenCPN was updated with:

git clone git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git
cd OpenCPN/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../
make -j4
sudo make install

Anyone using this update method rather than downloading the package will get this version.

Regards
Richard

Re: Raspberry Pi2

The version is no question, you are building unreleased development code.

That's my point - it's easily available in the public domain!

Re: Raspberry Pi2

But this is explained in the documentation/WiKi/(Developer)Manual.

And if somebody likes to compile the package, then the documentation should be the first place to read in order to be sure what one is doing.
