v1.5.0

This is a major update so it is strongly suggested you check all settings and features in advance of any competition use. A select number of pilots have been testing during development but we may not have caught every "Feature" Technically this is still a development version so user be ware!

    Main window

  • Added the CPA (Closest Point of Approach) field to the main window - this give you a live estimated transit distance from your goal. This will indicate "---" if you are moving away from the goal (any turn >90)
  • Get the new CPA window from the "removed items" list in Adjust layout.
  • Changed the ETE to indicate "--:--" if you are moving away from the goal (any turn >90)
  • Migration of settings from previous version. Layout, colours and font sizes should be preserved from your previous version.

    Settings Panel

  • Total update of the settings layout. I would suggest checking every setting after the update.

    Windreader

  • Arrows to show wind direction. The arrow colours can be auto set based on altitude (or if no altitude set, the position in the table) only at this time.
  • Changed line scale to a numeric up/down selector
  • Lines can now be set to draw based on colour in the table or one solid colour
  • Draw TO Only has changed to "Lines are" - Extended or TO ONLY. Does the same just different naming
  • You can now draw the windreader winds in multiple places as the same time by selecting "ADD" to draw more sets. The selection of winds can also be changed between drawing lines.
  • Layout redesign including new fields to show units when data is imported. Hover over each field and read the tool tis for details.
  • Load button for quick loading from an XML windreader file. This file is specifically formatted for oziTarget and sample files are available. For other formats use the normal Windreader import extension. Note: no validation on the incoming XML file at this time so an incorrectly formatted file will cause problems.

    Flight Winds

  • Changed line length to a numeric up/down selector
  • Arrows to show wind direction. The arrow colours can be set based on altitude or speed.
  • You can now select and draw up to 60 flight wind lines (previous limit of 3)
  • You can now draw the flight winds in multiple places as the same time by selecting "ADD" to draw more sets. The selection of winds can also be changed between drawing lines.
  • Lines can now be set to draw based on colour in the table or one solid colour
  • Export button to save the current flight winds to an XML file for processing externally if needed.
  • Added automatic saving to a CSV file every 10 seconds. This is controlled in main oziTarget settings

    Multiple Waypoints tool

  • Layout updated
  • added a hide button to the Multiple Waypoints tool so you can close the window but keep the lines drawing
  • no longer re-draws every cycle if you just have the markers on the selected waypoints

    Flight log tool

  • Time fixed as it was displaying the time as Hours:Months:Seconds and not Hours:Minutes:Seconds.

    Big Numbers

  • Error message on editing fixed. Correctly displays the field label too.

    Tracking

  • The oziLive Tracking system is baked into the main application so once set up and registered position and other data can be sent to the oziLive server.
  • Tracking is not yet available but as this is still private testing only at this time.
  • The Tracking system to be known as oziLive will allow you to share your location and flight data including data on the goal you are currently navigating to. You can monitor your ground crew or other balloons in your team as needed.
  • You will have control over who can see your data. Location sharing will require a connection to the internet. Either a wifi from your tablet/laptop to a phone or hotspot or a tablet / laptop with built in GSM radio and SIM card are required.
  • Lots more details to come soon.
