  • 1.3.2 beta 1 released

    1.3.2 beta 1 is now available. Please test well, as 1.3.2 final is coming soon.

    Back up your World Wind folder before using beta 1. Then, download http://voctopus.arc.nasa.gov/worldwind/dow.../ww-1.3.2b1.zip and unzip into your \Program Files\NASA\World Wind folder, on top of existing files.

    Please file bug reports in World Wind Issues, or feel free to discuss beta 1 in this forum topic.


    Major new features and fixes in beta 1:

    - You can now toggle the opacity setting on image layers, in the property window. Layer properties windows added. (Issues WW-233, WW-238, WW-231)
    - WorldWind.config is no longer used. Its settings are now stored in WorldWind.xml (local settings folder). (Issues WW-219, WW-230, WW-228)
    - Download tiles in single thread (back out multithreaded downloading due to performance problems). (Issue WW-203)
    - Use download queue. Improve download performance. (Issues WW-261, WW-277, WW-268, WW-248, WW-215, WW-309)
    - Images are converted to DDS by default (same as 1.3.1.1). (Issue WW-321)
    - New security warning dialog on plugin load. (Issue WW-214)
    - Unload plugins on application shutdown. (Issue WW-216)
    - Fix plugins could load multiple times. (Issue WW-232)

    - Call mouse event handlers in plugins before local handlers. (Issue WW-218)
    - Remove measure tool. (Issue WW-270)
    - Speed up World Wind startup, especially with large XML config files: calculate icon world coordinates when enabled instead of on startup. (Issue WW-255)
    - Screenshots can again contain position info (if position info is enabled upon save). Metadata files are now created. (Issue WW-242)
    - Cache, toolbar render, and tile memory usage optimizations. (Issues WW-42, WW-322, WW-325, WW-326)
    - Add support for loading GIF and TIFF files. (Issues WW-28, WW-259)

    - Loaded images default to DXT1 format. (Issue WW-235)

        But when it does come back, it'll be better - measure as-the-crow-flies (or as the mole digs, as the case may be) OR as-the-person-walks distances.
        Note: The above statement is probably an educated guess, derived from much forum reading, IRC chatting, general curiosity, etc. Use at your own risk.
        Before asking, check the FAQ or search, and Ask a good question.

        Having problems? Make sure you have Managed DirectX and .NET Framework.
        Then check the Video Card Compatibility List

          in the beta 1 the </Icon> tag is not working anymore.
          The icons are displayed below the horizont but the link is still present in the right point.

                  WOOHOO&#33;

                  The 3d angled view works now&#33; Now I will kill even more time playing with the wonderful app.

                  P.S. I have a built in video card using an Intel 82865G Graphics Controller

                    I have some problems with my cache. Could it came from this ? (found in worlwind.xml)
                    Code:
                     &#60;CacheCleanupInterval&#62;PT10M&#60;/CacheCleanupInterval&#62;
                    I don&#39;t seem to be able to keep my cache for more than a few minutes now. I have updated a few scripts and addons so I will check if they don&#39;t change anything else, but I think it came from the beta.
                    What does PT10M means and should I change it ?


                    edit: After trying a few older beta I came back to 1.32alpha2 and it work now.
