Ok, lets have a better game plan for 1.3.2

We should feature freeze at least 2 weeks before the release to allow for bug fixing and installer building AND release testing.

Bugs need to be in Source Forge's bug list to be considered for fixing. -- Bugs definitely need to be collected 'somewhere'. That somewhere should be in one centralized place.


Features to Add

  • realistic landsat photos, with accurate colors and better matching between tiles; it is unfortunate that the quality of the images has gotten worse in the last 2 months
  • bookmarks menu!

Bugs to Squash

  • Gaps in trails, trails are not properly mapped to terrain at 0 elevation. (bull)

Bugs noted in 1.3.1alpha4 with font patch (dpatton)

  • at program startup, the earth is partially covered by the toolbar at the top, even though there is free space below the earth at the bottom of the window(800x600 screen)
  • at program startup, Wireframe(CTRL+W) turns off the toolbar grey background and draws a diagonal line across the toolbar, and if it's open, the Layer Manager window
  • at program startup, if both Blue Marble layers are turned off, there is no Earth shown(probably "functions as designed"), but then using Wireframe(CTRL+W) doesn't show a wireframe
  • World Settings(ALT+W) - at least some of the settings, when changed, do not make the corresponding change in the UI until WW is stopped and restarted. For example, setting ShowPlacenames to False still leaves the Placenames layer (which is selected by default) on.
  • The "World Settings"(ALT+W) should be combined with the "World Wind Settings"(ALT+Q) into one interface.
  • Full Screen isn't working properly(WinXP). ALT+Enter does go to fullscreen, but using ALT+Enter or ESC to revert from fullscreen doesn't show the Windows taskbar until you task switch to another program. "Full Screen" from the View menu doesn't do real fullscreen - it leaves the Windows taskbar.

Current Functions to Improve

  • Support for proxy autodiscovery, proxy scripts, proxy authentication (gillesk)
  • Re-Examine WMS, SVS and MODIS.. can use improvement (TomServo) (Will look that in more detail to get some specific notes)


  • Launch program after install (requires another language string)
  • Add debugging code and defines<strike>
  • modify the first requirement string so that it contains another string with the requirement word. This way languages who may have to rearrange the sentence can. (language changes)
  • implement release notes into a exit license page - Cha Ching -
