WinGPS 5 Pro 2017 Release History
Version (18-12-2017)
Tide data for 2018 has been added. A number of new tide stations have been included.
Support for default transparent color of the 2018 editions of our chartsets.
Detecting if the last route point in a route was reached was always done, using the algorithms for an open route even when following a route on the route network. This has been fixed.
The routine that finds the closest netwerk section when a route over the route network is started now also takes into account if the section can be used with the chosen ship settings.
A number of other fixes, changes and improvements.
Version (17-05-2017)
Labels of routes and shipping notifications are also included in smart labeling.
When there are more than 1 shipping notifications in the same spot, clicking on them will now show the information of all of them.
The chart manager and chart status bar now better support the last time a chart was updated.
Due to a bug, changes to the default settings for routes were not always saved correctly. This has been fixed.
The format for the weather information of the official dutch KNMI weather stations had changed. This version supports the new format.
A number of other fixes, changes and improvements.
Version (06-03-2017)
If a lot of GRIB files older than a week are loaded (which can use a lot of memory and slow down the system), WinGPS will suggest to remove them.
The help window would move to background, when it was opened from the menu and directly afterwards a hint of a toolbar button was shown. This has been fixed.
The front lock at Eefde could not be passed using the route planner. This has been fixed.
Drawing of bridges and locks did not work correctly under certain conditions. This has been fixed.
A couple of smaller fixes, changes and improvements.
Version (07-02-2017)
Release of the WinGPS 5 Pro 2017 edition.
Labels of chart waypoints and the labels of bridges & locks are now positioned automatically (smart labels). This results is a better chart view.
A new planner mode has been added, that will find the shortest route possible while ignoring and highlighting possible obstacles. This makes it easier to find and plan around these obstacles.
Waterway network information like the waterway name, VHF channels and the next bridge or lock can now also be shown without following a route.
The toolbars can now be locked. After which they cannot be moved (by accident).
The positions and dimensions of all windows and toolbars can now be reset.
Scale factor of waypoints is now also available for waypoints in the user database.
The waterway network has been updated and expanded (the Danube specifically).
Locks are now drawn with two doors instead of 1 on scale.
Information about the operating times of bridges and locks on holidays has been added.
The chart manager now shows when a chart was released when it has never been updated.
The network port would not mention a broken TCP connection to a server. The network port will now try to reconnect five times, before giving up and mention this to user.
The route overview would load images of all bridges & locks along a route. This could result in high memory use (and crashes) for longer routes. This has been fixed.
A number of other fixes, changes and improvements.
