We are proud to announce the release of OpenOrienteering Mapper 0.9.4. This official release includes bug fixes and new features. Key changes since v0.9.3 are:
The Paint-on-Template feature (aka Scribbling) learned to fill areas (solid or pattern, GH-1242) and to draw in background.
When GNSS tracking is enabled, the viewport can follow the location (aka Tourist mode, GH-987).
Templates are loaded after initial map loading, with feedback (but still in foreground, i.e. blocking).
Basic support for Geospatial PDF templates (via Poppler and GDAL).
Upscaled icons, and increased menu item size, for better usability on Android.
Minor OCD support improvements, e.g. export of template visibility (GH-1236).
The Find-object tool may be used to visit one match after the other (GH-1512).
The object query language was extended with NOT and SYMBOL (GH-1631), adding even more power to CRT files.
Translations were updated again.
Third-party components were updated again (Qt 5.12.9, PROJ 7.1.1, GDAL 3.1.3, graphics formats, cf. Superbuild).
Placement of OCD templates in OCD maps (GH-1302).
OCD import of hatch/structure orientation (GH-1677).
Template alignment and list widget quirks.
DPI selection for image export (GH-1271).
Default location source on Android (GH-1629).
This release contains 344 commits with 232 changed files since v0.9.3. Many thanks go to 16 contributors.
This is the last release which will include the legacy file format “OCAD version 8, old implementation”. Don’t worry, the file format continues to be supported by actively maintained code. Only the unmaintainted “old implementation” is to be removed.
We are proud to announce the release of OpenOrienteering Mapper 0.9.0. This official release includes a lot of work which was made available for testing via unstable “dev” pre-releases. Key changes since 0.8.4 are:
ISOM 2017-2 symbol set.
Significantly improved OCD format support, including export up to version 12, georeferencing and symbol icons.
GeoTIFF template support.
Geospatial vector data export.
The Edit-objects tool respects corners.
The Scale-objects tool optionally resizes multiple objects in their original location.
Adjustable tool button size.
Standby/background operation improvements.
“Touch mode” available for PCs:
Keyboard-less fullscreen editing like on Android.
GPS support also for Windows/macOS/Linux.
Note that access to the Windows location requires .NET Framework 4 and Powershell 2 (included in Windows 10).
Significant modernization of 3rd-party components (Qt 5.12, PROJ 6, GDAL 3).
Note that this also means that some older versions of operating system are no longer supported by Mapper.
Less visible but nevertheless important is the introduction of a continuous integration process with test automation for macOS, Linux and Windows on the Azure Pipelines services from Microsoft. Together with the Open Build Service for Linux, all release packages are created in an automated way now. This greatly improves our ability to do frequent releases with confidence in quality.
This release contains 845 commits with 517 changed files since v0.8.4. As usual, many thanks go to the 14 contributors, but also to all those who helped finding issues with the ‘dev’ pre-releases. There is work-in-progress on ISSprOM 2019, but it is not included yet.
