Target release date: Monday, March 21. Feature/high-risk commit freeze until then.


  • Placenames seem to all be bold; least important things (small towns) shouldn't be bold, although continents/countries should
  • <ShockFire> bug: starting with /f doesn't work right
  • Font problem: Wingdings2/3 is MS Office-only and many don't have it. Randy has made a new font which needs to be installed in the installer. shockfire says: I have PCs where i can't install fonts, so I'd like some workaround for this
  • Jessi needs to check installer changes into CVS
  • Placenames bug: If you turn placenames off, and back on again, they don't come back. A restart is needed then to get the placenames back. (anyone interested in fixing this?)
  • New keychart (local file) needs to be distributed.
  • Shock/Mashi will fix DDS/JPG saving bug (Only save DDS when xml tag is set to DDS, only save (and load) JPG when it's set to JPG)
  • Shock/Mashi will fix download indicator polish issues: DownloadIndicatorProposal
  • Chris will enable tile expiry; is there a way to enable expiry for certain datasets (eg NLT) and not others?
  • gillesk's installer polish issues:
12:43 < gillesk> this is from installing 1.3 on a few machines, minor stuff:
12:43 < gillesk> - encoding with the foreign languages seems wrong
12:44 < gillesk> - after installing managed DirectX, the installer hides in the background - some users do not find it in their (hidden) taskbar ...
12:51 < dpatton_[CA]> jessi-nlt: not a bug, but the release should in clude a "list of changes", both for program changes(e.g. fixes and enhancemnets) and for data changes(e.g. new NLT server coverage, reprocessed colors, etc.)
  • WW_Automation.xsd needs to be fixed in HEAD, included in instal1:
12:36 < Bull_[UK]> the new scripting update has a bug
12:37 < adamhill> line 279
12:37 < adamhill> in WW_Automation.xsd
12:37 < Bull_[UK]> <_adam_gfx> Bull: change the second 'X' on line 279 to a 'Y'

(the only reason I havent already comitted it is that I dont know if this .xsd file is part of an autogenerated set and will just get over written. -ah)

  • infomation
00:42 <+Llynix> jessi-nlt: tell Chris I would very much like the Infomation typo fixed tomorrow
00:42 <+jessi-nlt> infomation typo where?
00:42 <+Llynix> tell him it just like that to.. "InFoMation"
00:42 <+Llynix> make sure you don't say the R
00:42 <+Llynix> he should know what I'm talking about
00:42 <+Llynix> it's an altova fix.. so we need him to do it
00:43 <+jessi-nlt> i ask because i think i better take care of it
00:43 <+Llynix> it's in the xml
00:43 <+Llynix> if you take a look at quickbird.xml I have <ExtendedInformation> and <ExtendedInfomation>
00:44 <+Llynix> it's repeated.. (in case he fixes it.. that way I don't 'have' to fix it on my end :)

Fixed, should be tested

  • Tile download problems apparently fixed.
  • Mashi has made it so Tahoma happens first, then default system font. ((Tahoma changed to Arial (since Tahoma isn't a "standard" Windows font). Some people feel Arial is harder to read. Note: (Tahoma is a standard Windows font in 98/2000/XP - Standard Windows Fonts -adamhill)))
