Target release date: Thursday, March 24 or Friday, March 25 or whenever. Feature/high-risk commit freeze until then.


Bugs with 1.3.1 alpha3 Patch

* WorldWindAutomation_v1.xsd and scripts directory (with two test scripts) not included in install * Update license.txt / NSIS license display with -- do you want Government Agency Point of Contact for Original Software: changed?? Why not do it yourself :) * Hidden CVS folders were included in patch; they shouldn't be

  • Upon startup, WW complains that _NorwegianMunicipalities.xml is invalid, line 44 -- this isn't a schema bug, ww internationalization bug.

* World Wind Dings font seems to be installed but doesn't display in WW

  • Non-US subnational boundaries (e.g. Canada, Norway) don't appear in the "default" boundaries package
    • Has the XML file been validated against the new LayerSet schema? (my guess is no)[CM]
  • Additional Subnational Boundaries add-on doesn't work as advertised: "all countries" doesn't work, subnational boundaries should be a different color than the national boundaries
  • Typeface in Layer Manager should be smaller
  • L in Layer Manager tooltip is still cut off
  • Bullets are still slightly elevated and off-center
  • view - layermanager isnt synched with toolbar layermanager, if you close it with the x the view one remains ticked

Bugs with Chris' Checkin

  • edit - refesh current view only re-downloads the data when you select it the second time. (Bug or feature?)


  • 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
  • New keychart (local file) needs to be distributed.
  • 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.)

Fixed, should be tested

  • 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)
  • 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)))
  • Placenames seem to all be bold; least important things (small towns) shouldn't be bold, although continents/countries should (Chris fixed)
  • Jessi needs to check installer changes into CVS
  • <ShockFire> bug: starting with /f doesn't work right (fixed itself)
  • infomation typo in xml fixed; add-on authors need to update XML files
  • 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?)
  • 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)
