Greetings, all.


The next build of YAAC is available, downloadable from the usual places:


http://www.ka2ddo.org/ka2ddo/YAAC.html

http://sourceforge.net/projects/yetanotheraprsc


There are several usability updates, including some enhancements to the optional sounds plugin, allowing more accurate speaking of real-time APRS events through a text-to-speech synthesizer. Other changes in YAAC include:


1. improvements in handling private (non-transmitted) Objects.

2. improvements in handling OpenStreetMap Relations (collections of smaller Ways and Nodes) to make them useful and renderable on the map.

3. usability improvements in the filters.

4. adding the ability to have a line-of-sight plot produced for a mobile station, dynamically updating the plot based on the changing position of the station.

5. correctly interpreting compressed-mode position reports using overlays or APRS 1.2 extended symbol codes.


As usual, you can upgrade existing installations of YAAC using the built-in upgrader, but plugins will have to downloaded and replaced manually.


Enjoy.
