Hello all OpenCPN
Continuing our Beta test, here is RC2 v5.1.708
Here are the links for Windows and Mac installation
The downloadable installers for Mac and Windows are here:
users running a debian-derivative distribution, you may install the Beta using your distro's package management tools.
Packages for Trusty, Xenial, Bionic, and Focal are available from the OpenCPN
Please note that above links are fixed, and will not reflect the ongoing daily build cycles.
If you need to test a feature that you know or suspect has been fixed or added by a daily build, you may find it here:
Here is a list of some of the corrections and new features in this Beta release:
1. Improve Garmin
GRMN mode setup and detection on linux
2. Improve startup chart persistence for plugin chart types.
3. Correct Flatpak plugin compatibility test.
4. Correct default sound configuration on arm* (rPi) hosts.
5. Correct ENC
sounding rendering for "low accuracy" soundings.
6. Refine plugin list panel layout.
The RC2 is a "Release Candidate". In theory, only the Version Indicator text shall be changed to create a formal Release. Only significant and reproducible bugs will be addressed in this test cycle. Minor bugs with workarounds available will be allowed to stand.
Of course, in practice, we will consider each bug reported on its own "merits".
Getting closer now...
Dave and the OCPN Team
