Fixed crash when loading flight plan with invalid waypoint while being connected to simulator. Fixed crash that happens with invalid flight plans when switching databases in connected state. The active leg is now reset when switching to avoid crashes. Removed wrong warning of airway altitude violations where upper limit is 0. User set cruise altitude remains unchanged now after victor or jet calculation when east/west rule adjustment is off. Cruise altitude is now adjusted to next valid value for east/west rule based on the current value entered in the user interface. Was always set to lowest allowed value. Now also lowering or raising cruise altitude if not valid for used airways when using jet or victor calculation. Fixed issues which cruise altitude correction when using metric units. Elevation Profile Fixed problem where aircraft trail was not recorded in elevation profile when window was closed or program was hidden/minimized. Fixed issue where flight plan and elevation profile was built incorrectly if waypoints were not valid in plan. Options Restore defaults in options dialog can now be reverted by pressing cancel. Resetting map theme back to OpenStreetMap to avoid wrong selection of disabled OpenMapSurfer theme. Other small user interface fixes. Procedures Fixed display issue for procedure leg names like XAROL+5. Was using wrong distance value before. Fixed issue where navaids were hidden on the map if part of a missed procedure in the flight plan. Fixed display problem when deleting transitions from a flight plan resulting in invalid approach.

Help Draft manuals can be accessed here: 2.4 Draft Manuals List of closed issues: Closed for Milestone 2.4 Changes Fixed crash when reading GRIB winds aloft or WMM (magentic declination) data on Windows if user’s home path contains special characters like umlauts or accents. Fuel flow and amount is now displayed correctly in current performance tab if fuel unit is changed to volume in edit dialog. Was too high before. Removed merge options for aircraft type and model in performance merge dialog which resulted in unwanted changes. Now limited to copy and ignore. Added real ICAO code to airport to avoid issues with X-Plane’s artificial airport ids. Now finds procedures for e.g. “AT4” where ICAO is actually “CAT4”. Reload the scenery library to see this fix. X-Plane FMS flight plan is now adjusted for real ICAO airport idents when using procedures to avoid problems loading plan. Fixed display problem when deleting transitions from a flight plan. Added IATA and ICAO codes to airport information display if available. Adjusted window texts in night style to better see disabled checkboxes like on the weather tab in options dialog.

The user interface will be a mix of your local language and English. The online and offline manuals are not updated yet. Neither the English nor the translated versions. Help buttons and links are functional but point to empty placeholder pages. The legend is not updated yet. Tutorials not updated yet. Installation Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables are not needed. Reloading the scenery library is recommended. Reinstall the Little Xpconnect X-Plane plugin to see bug fixes on macOS. Help Draft manuals can be accessed here: 2.4 Draft Manuals List of closed issues: Closed for Milestone 2.4 Program Now using an OpenSSL library version 1.1.1 which does not require Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables. No need to install any redistributables at all for Little Navmap on a freshly installed Windows 10. Fixed issues with OpenSSL on Linux. The libraries are now included in the archive again. Now providing two builds for Linux. One based on Ubuntu 18.04 and one based on Ubuntu 16.04. This allows to use Little Navmap on older Linux distributions too. Updated to latest Qt 5.12.5 library due to bugfixes. Flight Plan Fixed issue where flight plans exported for Reality XP had departure wrongly set to destination. Fixed small issue where flight plan legs were activated when editing plan with aircraft on ground. Showing minimum and maximum altitude for airways in flight plan table now. Airway now shown as red text if either direction, minimum or maximum altitude is violated. Tooltips on red text in flight plan table now show information for airway restriction violations or invalid waypoints. Route Description Added missing alternate airport parsing functionality to route description dialog. Route description can now read and write more than one alternate airport to and from the string. Added option to drop down menu button to output alternate airports to string. Added option to route description dialog drop down menu button that allows to read trailing airports either as alternate airports or simply add the airports as waypoints. Better error, warning and information messages now. Logbook Adding route description string to logbook entries now. Cleanup in logbook entry information display. Aircraft Performance Better error checking before calculating elevation profile to fix crashes with invalid destination or departure. Fix for flooding log with warnings about invalid arguments when displaying fuel and weight. Potential fix for display of wrong fuel flow values. Changed aircraft performance to detect cruise phase if aircraft is above cruise altitude. Profile Display Keeping aircraft on bottom of elevation profile when climbing and on top of profile if descending. Now keeping aircraft in elevation profile more at the left side to avoid manual scrolling. Aircraft label could be hidden in elevation profile display. Map Corrected View -> Reset Display Settings function and added missing display features to reset (weather, airspace sources, user features and more). Fixed several issues where airspace buttons were disabled and/or not updated properly after changing source. Fixed double drawing of waypoints and navaids which are part of a flight plan. Fix for right-click into touch areas on Windows which triggered a wrong scroll event. Corrected display priorities from map context menu. Logbook is now prioritized before userpoint before airport for all actions. Weather Moved wind and airport weather source from menu View to new menu Weather since these functions also affect flight planning and not just the map display. Wind speed and direction fields are now hidden in flight planning tab if no manual wind is used. This allows to shrink the flight planning dock window to a smaller size. Added tooltip for flight plan waypoint yellow wind barbs. Added 5000 ft wind layer to wind menu and toolbar button. Lowered wind drawing threshold for flight plan. Wind barbs are now suppressed for flight plan legs below 4000 ft. Options Changed defaults in options dialog to more sensible values. This will affect only new users of after selecting Reset all Settings and Restart in the tools menu. Fixed several issues with Restore Defaults function in options dialog where values were not reset at all or reset to the wrong defaults. Fixed issues in options dialog where webserver settings were not used or reverted back to old values. Fixed issue where the webserver was always started after exiting options dialog. User Interface Added Reset all Settings and Restart function in tools menu which replaces the need to delete the settings folder in case of issues. This will create a backup of the little_navmap.ini and erase all contents afterwards. Stacks of tabbed dock windows are now completely closed if one of the docks in the stack is closed by using the shortcut, menu or toolbar. Closed stacks are reopened completely if one of the dock windows is reopened or activated. Stacked dock windows are now correctly raised on shortcut or other activation. Before the stack of dock windows was raised only while the dock window was still hidden. Fixed issue where splitter handles (in elevation profile and route description dialog) were too large. Style macintosh is now usable again on smaller screens for macOS. Tabs took up too much space previously and prevented dock windows from shrinking. Default style is now macintosh again after a new installation on macOS. Attempt to fix options dialog which appeared without content in some cases. More small fixes for more clarity and consistency in user interface. Little Xpconnect / X-Plane Fixed issue in macOS build where plugin failed to initialize in X-Plane. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 2.4.0.beta Limitations Translations are not updated yet. The user interface will be a mix of your local language and English. The online and offline manuals are not updated yet. Neither the English nor the translated versions. Help buttons and links are functional but point to empty placeholder pages. Help Included map legend updated (Map Legend Online). Installation You might have to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable on a fresh installation of Windows 10. Most will have this already installed since it is needed by many programs. You can get the Redistributable from the following download links: MSVC 2015 Redistributable and Downloads at LittleNavmap.org. Install both 32 bit and 64 bit versions if needed.

This is the release candidate for a small update which also fixes a few bugs. The manual and translations are not updated yet. Please report any issues with the new flight plan export formats since I could not test these with the real aircraft or tools. Also let me know the default destination paths for the various aircraft or tools since I have no information on these. Notable changes are: Key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more. Several new flight plan export formats. Download Windows - macOS - Linux >> Alternative download location at Dropbox << >> Alternative download location at Mega.nz << Notes This release contains small bugfixes, new keyboard shortcuts and more flight plan export formats. Changes from 2.2.3 to 2.2.4.rc1 Flight Plan Export Added saving and loading of FlightGear XML flight plans (.fgfp) also covering SID and STAR. #361 MDX flight plan export for Leonardo Maddog X added. #232 Added RTE flight plan export for QualityWings aircraft. #335 Export for AivlaSoft EFB (.efbr version 1 - currently no SID and STAR). #226 Added saving of PNG or JPG map images for AviTab to file menu. Includes JSON calibration file. #310 Added flight plan export for online networks including dialog for additional data. #317 (vPilot) and #176 (IVAP, X-IVAP) Added FPL flight plan export for FeelThere aircraft. #206 New flight plan export for Level-D (.rte). #206 Adapted flight plan file type detection to new formats and improved it for drag and drop loading. Files are now accepted for dropping/loading independent of file extension. Now automatically suggesting a numbered filename if file already exists when exporting or using Save as. Reorganized export flight plan menu items for better overview. Map Fixed issue where MORA data was displayed only with Navigraph data enabled. Now always shown independent of selection. #331 Changed taxiway color for better visibility against light backgrounds. Added taxiway colors and pens to little_navmap_mapstyle.ini to allow configuration. Logbook userpoint icon now displayed using an offset from airport icon to avoid covering the airport symbol. Hotspot of logbook userpoint is now top left of the symbol. #366 Now disabling text in MORA display if it gets too small to avoid garbled up display. Fixed display issues with procedure legs. Flight Plan Fixed issue where selecting a parking position as departure resulted in zero cruising altitude in flight plan. Now displaying simulator type in information window for online network clients. Scenery Library Airports with open helipads and closed runways are now considered open. Now considering helipads for rating calculation for airports. Fixed issue with error messages when loading OpenAIR files with missing airspace class. Now omitting only the invalid airspaces instead of the whole file. Now looking for registry keys in a case insensitive manner to avoid problems where FSX or P3D could not be found. User Interface Added function key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more. #364 Added links to well known directory Documents/Little Navmap Files/ICAO for airport information. Links to all included files are shown if the path exists for an airport with the given ICAO ident. The path is locale sensitive, e.g. in German Dokumente/Little Navmap Dateien/ICAO. This depends on completeness of the translation. Try both variants (Files vs. your system language) if in doubt. Clicking on a link opens the file in the default editor or viewer of the system. Fixed wrong test in options dialog for online status.txt file. Now looking for the correct values to verify the file. Default folder is now the simulator base path when selecting exclusions in the options dialog. Fixed issue where date display used 12 hour time without AM/PM indicator. Now always using 24 hour time for UTC time display. Moved all context menus a few pixels off the cursor to avoid accidental selection on touchpads or some mice. Fixed issues with missing weather updates when switching airport weather. Options/Language override in settings file now fixed for online help and legend loading. Made METAR parser more tolerant for invalid temperature values not separated by a /. related from Little Xpconnect version 1.0.13 Fixed issue with AI detection where aircraft remained on map moving along with the user aircraft after deleting AI in simulator.
