Notes

This release adds support for Prepar3D v5, Chinese user interface translation by John Liu, bug fixes for crashes and other small improvements.

Note that not all reported issues are fixed so far.

Most will be fixed in the next major update version 2.6 (2.5 is only internal) which I’m working on in parallel.

Changes from Release 2.4.4 to 2.4.5

See CHANGELOG.txt in littlenavmap project for changes across all versions.

Prepar3D v5

#512

  • Added P3D v5 to simulator detection.
  • Adapted loading of BGL files to P3D v5 structure changes and added new records as well as new COM and other types.
  • Enabled loading of add-on packages from %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons.

Fixed Crashes and other Errors

  • Fixed crash to desktop when adding an approach after a list of user defined waypoints. #500
  • Fixed error reporting in wind download and decoding. Program does not crash to desktop if wind download has errors. #480
  • Now limiting weather display to the 10 most important/biggest airports if connected via network or SimConnect to P3D/FSX. This minimizes map stutters when scrolling or zooming. #497 Disable display of airport weather symbols if stutters still appear:
    • Menu Weather -> Airport Weather Source: Select anything but Simulator.
    • Or menu View: Disable Show Airport Weather.
  • Fixed crash when entering an invalid ICAO in web interface for airport information. #491
  • Fixed wrong handling of Options/RenderOpt setting in little_navmap.ini.
  • Corrected encoding when exporting flightplan as HTML page.

User Interface

  • Fixed spelling and typos in user interface.
  • Small UI changes in connection dialog for more clarity.
  • Added word wrap to avoid dialogs growing too large in user interface.
  • Better display on mobile devices for webserver.
  • Updated German legend.

Build and Deployment for Developers

  • Added option to include common ../build_options.pro file with defines for qmake. File is included automatically if it exists.
