I'd like to announce that FoxtrotGPS 1.2.2 has been released,
and can now be downloaded from <http://www.foxtrotgps.org/>.
A quick list of changes from the NEWS file (since the 1.2.1 release):
* New --lat and --lon options allow setting the waypoint
from the command-line, thanks to Pavel Machek.
* FoxtrotGPS can now be built with libgps 3.18 and later,
thanks to Charles Curley. Older libgps versions are also
still usable, as well.
* Warnings during build from use of deprecated GLib APIs
have been fixed, also thanks to Charles Curley.
And... I think I actually somehow missed sending a previous announcement e-mail to this list--
back when 1.2.1 was released last year; so for anyone who's wondering what the rest of
the news since 1.2.0 is...:
* Completed translations:
- Serbian, thanks to Branko Majic
- Polish, thanks to Patryk Benderz
- French now has a correct Keywords entry in the FreeDesktop menu file
* Various typos have been fixed.
* Photo geocoding no longer fails to load track-files
whose names don't end in ".log".
* Support for the W3C GeoRSS format,
GeoRSS feeds with no descriptions for their items,
and the newer feedparser 'where' API
* Support for parsing KML based tracks.
* The yournavigation.org interface now uses the version 1.0 KML API.
* The default maps-for-free.com map repository now uses HTTPS.
The site now redirects from http to https and
FoxtrotGPS does not yet support HTTP redirects.
In addition it provides a bit of privacy on the network.
Thanks to Christian Barthel (bch) for reporting this
in the #foxtrotGPS IRC channel on freenode.
* Reduced the number of warnings + debug statements printed on the console!
* Switch from GConf to GSettings.
GConf has been obsolete for years and distributions are removing it.
* Support for Python 3 and more modern Python libraries,
and Python 3 is now used by default (Python 2 will be EOL in 2020).
