Temporary new Version of OpenRadar released

Postby wagnerw » Fri Feb 26, 2016 5:48 am

Dear Users,

I am sorry for all this trouble.

Our map download feature will come back. It is in the setup process. So the server will come back.

Until it is back, there is a new version of OpenRadar at https://sourceforge.net/projects/openradar/files/.

If this version is not able to download the files, it allows you to use this airport without background maps. You are properly informed and can work on. There are a few improvements, that you will notice. It has become quicker, it has become more stable.
Most of the delay has been caused by a Debian/Ubuntu specific issue: Their version of Java got a new accessibility feature that causes hangs and lockups sometimes of OpenRadar, sometimes of the whole window manager. We spend more than a month of intensive work until we found it.
Many thanks to Jomo for all the hours testing for me. (I don't use Ubuntu)!!!

I will update the official Wiki pages soon.

Hi Wagner,
thanks for the new version - unfortunately, it seems that even the new server you coded in the program (landcover.ucsd.edu) went down as well. Are you aware of any workarounds?

I am sorry, there is a new server set up already. I am testing right now. I will release a version that can download again this week.
Thanks to Martin Spott for setting it up for us again!!!

I come back as soon as it is live.

is that specific to just OpenRadar, or does this mean that mapserver (or its data) is going to be available for other purposes (scenery), too ?

The new server brings back the map layer download that is used by OpenRadar to get data about the map background. I think, this is all. But I don't know for sure.

Dear Users,

The updated version is copied to the download location at:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/openra ... 20release/

This update corrects the server download URL. The server is back up and I have tested the download for several airports.
Sorry for the long delay!

Thanks - could you also push the source code to the Git repository as well?
