| After 2 months, a new 3.0 version is about to be released.
This is a list of changes, mostly are fixes. All of these are also inside 3.1, already.
There is still a problem pending with fonts, in both 3.0 and 3.1, but I am not sure we can fix it that easy.
Please check if something is missing from this list, compared to what you have in 3.0c .
Fixes that will be part of 3.0d:
Fix airspace critical loading bug on startup, crashing LK if a spurious line longer than 254 characters was found
Fix bug not handling a bad polar file been loaded.
The polar was incorrectly loaded only from the first non-commented line, and if this was invalid
it was nevertheless kept as valid.
Result was a 0,0,0,0,0 polar of course.
We now manage incorrect lines, and we enforce check for valid polar been loaded.
In case of problems, the situation is reverted to Std Cirrus and a message is given to the user.
Previously, no message was given in case of bad polar loaded.
Fix bug showing airspace warnings also while using configuration menu.
Allow airspace warnings even below 60seconds after takeoff if using SIM mode.
In sim mode we might be using pan mode to check for situations quickly, and the missing warning was misleading.
Fix small bug terrain shading option: changing terrain with shading off would not allow us to enable shading again.
Extend Acknowledge time for airspaces from 120 seconds to 720 seconds (12 hours).
Fix airspace selection in pan mode no more working since september 13 2011.
Fix Nearest turnpoint page 2.3 not checking correctly terrain reachable, appearing almost always negative (red)
Fix old bug not calculating terrain reachable (and displaying orange arrival altitude on overlay) when a turnpoint not landable was assigned
as alternate destination.
Fix old bug in 3.0 wrong upper zone for nearest page: the zone for pulling up cursor selection of nearest pages was too tight.
Fix old bug in 3.0 overcalculating reachability for landables. Even landables with negative arrival altitudes were checked for terrain obstacles,
resulting in a abnormal number of calculations (hidden by multicalc optimization).
LK performance is greatly improved now, when using a lot of landable waypoints (many thousands).
Fix infobox values for task (arrival, ETE, eta, etc) should display --- when task was not started yet.
Fix bug resetting FlarmNet counter on startup
Fix LK8ext1 device to prevent the slowdown of the application if more than one NMEA frame / second
was sent. This is particularly affecting GT VArio.
Fix bug that caused trail points to disappear in circling zoom with trail drift on.
