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.

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:

Changes in 1.2.32 (2017-07-08):

* aven:

  + 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.

* Manual:

  + 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.
