View Full Version : Mappie 1.5 summary

Dispite delays, Mappie 1.5 will be released within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

I have lost my main development machine... But fortunatly, I was able to recover the source code. Hopefully 1.5 will bring some donations so I can afford repairs... I'm just a no-income student, after all. hehe

Anyways, Summary of changes from 1.4, including things that didn't make it:
First, the list that didn't make it:
I Didn't get enough time to work on help files. (Or maybe I was too lazy... or both.)
Line point manipulation remains largly unactivated. Windows GDI Calls are just not giving the performance I want.. I'm thinking of converting the whole app to use a different API to fix this.

Here's what's in 1.5:
Exporting grid to file.
Better Z-Axis navigating
Merge Near-lines (See tutorial)
Map downloading is retuned (Yet again!)
Topography Colors option (See tutorial)

Just need to complete the testing...
1.6 is going to have a pretty big internal recode. =/

Bug discovered in 1.5... The EQ2 compatable code isn't working quite right. I know, I know... Better testing would have caught this... but I don't actually have EQ2 to try any of it out with! =(

All my info is comming from emails and posts...

Oh well. A fix (I hope) should be up in a couple days.
