« on: June 27, 2013, 19:50:00 »
1.8.2013 - Locus 2.13.1.8

known issues in this version:
- do not rotate to landscape in "Points" screen, otherwise locus crash - fixed

news - 2.13.1.8:
- Map shading integrated as full public feature and added support for shading also for all online maps!
- added karta.kapsi.fi maps

news - 2.13.1.7:
- update translations

news - 2.13.1.6:
- some improvements mainly in offline POI database. Now it's possible to display all points from list on map, points are also highlighted (maybe too much?) and also are in list displayed only with custom icons, so ignore current vector map theme (on map it's still based on theme).
- some reported fixes and small improvements

news - 2.13.1.5:
- official announcment of offline POI database! - more here viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267
- fixed some problems in translation

- improvements in notifications (toasts)
- small fixes in google navigation
- small optimizations

20.7.2013 - Locus 2.13.1.4

news:
- improved vector map shading, so now I'm going to be satisfied - enable in config.cfg file and be sure you have available HGT files in vector map area
- improvements in TTS voices (more in TTS topic)
- fixed problems with layouts for points/tracks pickers
- improvements in GPS/Compass screen
- new coloring system for maps - night/high contrast/low contrast
- another speed improvements in mapsForge!! I can't believe it's still possible :)
- improving labeling mechanism of mapsforge, so now should display almost all required city/village labels
- added ability to use border also for colored (speed, altitude, ...) tracks
- fixed some problems in computing navigation track distance

13.7.2013 - Locus 2.13.1.2/2.13.1.3

news:
main news:
- introducing new map of the world as vector map that cover world for 1-8 zoom levels when using vector maps (extract attached file into Locus/mapsVector directory and enjoy)
- new system for TTS voices - viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3227
- create better switcher for a vector themes
- own web loader for login over OAuth (geocaching, osm, ...), so no more needed external web browser (is this working for your without problems?)
- created system for turning screen on/off programatically and created new settings for automatic usage of this feature (btw. geasture is by proximity sensor. It's usually at top of screen. and is needed two waves, not more, during max 2 seconds :) )
- removed compatibility with A2.1, so locus now works on A2.2+
- added support for a sorting tracks by distance to first/last point
- some improvements in sorting (points/tracks)
- improved highlight of simplified dots on map

optimizations:
- improved vector maps rendering speed for another 10-20%, mainly at levels around 10 - 14
- huge speed optimizations in dual-screens (mainly data, maps)
- improved initializing of SQLite based map files, also better checking if SQLite maps is in view or not

not so important:
- added new progress loaders so you may see, something is happening when data are loading on various places
- improvements in live tracking, mainly response on internet connection
- fixed problem in incorrect sorting vector maps by distance
- fixed problem with loading some map files oruxMaps
- fixed small problems in merged compass & sat screen
- and many fixes

remaining known problems:
- incorrect altitude of first few points when using pressure sensor

I'm with Peter still work on some offline database of POI, so it takes quite a lot of time. In rest I still would like to invest time to navigation. You're big fan on this topic and it's a shame, not to use you, any many others, on some field testing. In previous and this versions are some improvements in GUI, but there are still some problems in algorithms, so I want to check this. Topic on July ...

Seems to work on my ZTE Blade smoothly (I really got to get a new device!)
One thing I noticed or didn't find is the missing "quick hide POI" function. I had it on my top menu, now I can't find it anywhere?
With a lot of geocaches, munzees, waymarks etc it was a very useful function!

Not really, it is useful, but I want hide and display individual categories.
Could you consider adding this to the category edit functions (Points|Import|Export|Edit|Delete|(UN)HIDE)

Hi Menion,
first of all thanks for another great version of your app. I especially like the faster loading speed of vector maps (maybe i will at some point start using them now instead of tile maps...) and the new data screen.
Also the "sort caches by favorite points" sounded great, but when i tried it it didn´t work. The order of the caches was changed, but when i checked them they were not in order of favourite points.
It would also be handy to see the favourite points in the POI List.

@eldron: problem with "favorites" is simple. You need to get "favorites" values into Locus. Usually best way is to update caches by Geocaching4Locus or import from Gsak or GeoGet database (if they contain favorites values), because Pocket Query do not have these informations

@christian: eh .. didn't you updated your ROM? Or are you using any special ROM in your device? There is no reason for this, because as I remember, I do not changed anything in this screen. Is this happening only in this tracks screen or also in any other?

Hi Menion,
The Caches where imported with Geocaching 4 Locus and some of them contain values for "favoriten" (german version) in the information tab, with a blue ribbon and a number next to it. Isn´t that the value that should be used when sorting by favorite points?
