New release - v2.975
« on: October 01, 2008, 11:30:36 AM »

Today we released a new revision of TopoFusion Basic -- version 2.975.  This version includes several bug fixes and some additional functionality.

Smart merging is a great new feature that really simplifies track merging.  Trailing extra points on drawn tracks was another really nagging UI issue that has been resolved.

We tried a couple approaches to get Landsat tiles to download again in the Basic version, but it just isn't possible.  The way Basic talks to the Nasa server simply isn't supported anymore.  If you want new Landsat tiles, you will have to upgrade to the Pro version of TopoFusion, which besides working, downloads much faster than Basic ever did, and stitches them together much more seamlessly.

If you're using Basic and have existing Landsat maps already downloaded they will continue to work.  But we have disabled the code that tries to download tiles and replaced it with a (one time) error message.

Other changes, from the revision history:

2.975 – [10/01/08]

Fixed crash in "edit track properties" when editing info
Fixed intermittent “unknown exception” on finishing track download
Fixed bug causing main TF window to become tiny when un-maximizing
Added “smart” merging (track merge tool)
  - also: holding shift is no longer required to merge
Fixed problem with stray point added to end of drawn track
Fixed crashes loading some network files (removed maketopology()).
Updated copyrights on splash and about
Disabled Landsat tiles by default, added error message indicating new landsat downloads non-functional (Existing downloaded landsat tiles will still load and display)
