We plan to test this version thoroughly over the next few weeks, updated as necessary, leading to a general release of OpenCPN Version 5.6.0 this fall.


First, how do you get and install OpenCPN Version 5.5.x Beta?

1. Windows

On my link to the other thread is a Windows installer. I tried it successfully just now.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.5.x Beta Test Starts

Hi Dave,

I should prefix this by saying, I don't think it is a big issue.

Mostly, the logic works as you describe. But there are defiantly occasions when it doesn't. These seem to be for tracks that are sinuous. We get such tracks here when vessels enter the river from the sound and need to navigate around the island and shallows.

In the images I've attached, you can see the class B vessel Pandora. Pan 1 shows the "head" of the track. Pan 2 shows the whole track (20min). Pan 3 shows the middle of the track which has neither the vessel nor the first point visible.

This is an example of the track remaining visible when the rules say it shouldn't. I don't think I've seen the reverse but I'll keep an eye out.

I've also seen this with class A vessels.

John

A track will be shown if the oldest track point is on screen, even if the target itself is not on screen.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.5.x Beta Test Starts

I want to start testing this beta on MacOS but the link in the original post to the installer on cloudsmith is broken, as is the one for Windows.
A correct link will be appreciated - thanks.
