New

Modifications
Improvements

  • show pace values in mm:ss format in chart and views
  • display multiple tours in map for multiple months/years
Bugfix
  • calculation for imperial pace (min/mile) was not correct in the toursegmenter
  • average/max values have not been computed when tours are merged
  • not importing correct timezone information from GPX #2830925
  • speed in tunnels for gps devices was 0, now the average value is computed but it can be wrong

 

 

Version 9.07

(7. July 2009)

This version solves a
critical bug because all previous versions can corrupt the saved tours.
MyTourbook is using the Derby database to store the tours and version 10.3.2.1, which was used until now can corrupt the database, you can read more details here .

You can check your data with the consistency check tool in version 9.07, this tool can be started in the menu File/Database Consistency Check.

The good thing is that a data corruption never happened within my installation and development environment and nobody complained until now. The reason could be that the application is not used simultaneously by multiple users because the corruption occures when multiple threads are accessing the database.
Please contact the author when a data corruption occured in your installation.

SRTM map with custom colors (see the same location within the OSM map )

 

 

 

!!! This is very important for LINUX users !!!

 

It was requested several times, to change the data directory to a location, which is common in Linux. With version 9.05, the location is moved but only for the Linux platform.


BEFORE you start version 9.05, you MUST move the existing data directory to the new location, otherwise the application will not find any existing data and tours.

 

Old location

/home/<user name>/mytourbook
New location /home/<user name>/.mytourbook

 

The location, where the application stores the data, can be configured, see this info but a new installation will overwrite a modified configuration file.
