Survex 1.2.32 is now available:
This release fixes a few bugs and improves the documentation of *fix in the
manual a bit.
See the NEWS file entry below for a full list of changes.
There's no Mac OS X build yet - I'll try to sort one out shortly.
Here are SHA256 checksums should you want to verify the integrity of the
There are also detached GPG signatures in the download directory:
There are "release notes" on the wiki, which I'll try to keep updated
with any issues found, so take a look there for the latest information:
Please report any issues you find which are not covered in the release
notes to the bug tracker (https://trac.survex.com/).
Changes in 1.2.32 (2017-07-08):
+ Make splays on printouts a darker shade of grey. Reported by Erin Lynch
and Anthony Day.
+ In export formats which include 3 dimensions (DXF, PLT, GPX, KML, JSON,
POS), the value in the Z dimension was negated. Bug introduced by fixes
for export of rotated plans and tilted elevations in 1.2.27. Reported by
Erin Lynch in #89.
+ Ignore viewing angles for export formats which work in 3D. When the
rotation and tilt controls are hidden in the export dialog we were still
using their values to transform the data, so if you set them with for one
export format which support them, then switched to an export format which
doesn't, you'd get bogus coordinates in the exported file. Bug probably
introduced in 1.2.27 by fixes for exports of rotated plans and tilted
+ Fix exporting to skencil and Survex .pos formats. When aven's export to
.pos was added in 1.2.19, the ordering didn't match up and since then .pos
export has produced skencil files and vice versa.
+ Don't leave terrain on if loading terrain data fails. Previously if you
clicked the terrain icon (or via the menu) with no terrain loaded, but no
terrain got loaded (e.g. because the survey data lacks an explicit
coordinate system, or because the file failed to load, or because you
cancelled the dialog) then the terrain icon/menu item was still changed to
+ Disable texturing while drawing terrain. Previously the terrain got a bit
darker when "Textured Walls" were enabled.
+ Force a refresh when "Textured Walls" are enabled or disabled. Previously
the display wouldn't update right away.
+ Document how to specify fixed point altitude in feet.
+ Explain why *fix warns about unused fixed points
* Building from source now requires a compiler with decent support for C++11.
If you're using GCC, then GCC 4.7 should suffice. This should not be an
onerous requirement - e.g. Debian wheezy and Ubuntu trusty both have a recent
enough GCC. If special options are needed, these should get probed for and
automatically. Fixes building 1.2.31 with GCC < 6, reported by Wookey.
