OpenCPN Version 5.2.4 Released

Hello all OpenCPN users...

We have today released OpenCPN Version 5.2.4.
This is a small, but important, maintenance release including the following updates:

1. Correct rare fault when showing certain features of selected ENCs.
2. Implement minor update to Plugin manager GUI display layout.

As usual, the Release installation packages are available in the opencpn.org download page.
The linux/Ubuntu packages are also available from the OpenCPN Production PPA.
And finally, the full source code package is available at github.com

Thanks, and we appreciate your continued support.

Dave, and the OpenCPN Team.

Chrome, at least, is blocking the download because it is http, not https.
Quick fix until url is corrected is to rightclick and "Open link in new tab".

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.2.4 Released

The Download page worked correctly for me. See screenshot, below.

Some browsers reload old web pages from the local computer's memory. if your browser displays the old page, try refreshing the page.

Exact remove the S to HTTPS, and it works.

Hello all...


For enhanced security, and also to support some newer browsers, we have updated the Windows and Mac download links on the opencpn.org Download page.


Please remember to refresh your page cache in order to see the new links.


Thanks
Dave

So I fell in that old trap again?! :-)
A simple "F5" fixed it all.
Thanks

It is a poor coded web page, a meta line like this in the header could help: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="...

The macOS version of OpenCPN 5.2.4 still crashes with El Capitan (10.11.6).
Remove .pdf from the zip file.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.2.4 Released

This may upset some of the developers but I find that the '+nnnnn' suffix on the downloaded program a bit of lack of aesthetic detail.

It seems to be a carry over from incremental revisions in the update process but why are they (as in previous versions) carried over to the stable release?

Are they really necessary?

Should have mentioned this prior to the latest release but thought it would be obvious to the developers.
