Description david 2004-06-15 23:20:17 UTC
	The author of the code has released an update for GPSMan.  The
	appended patch brings the astro/gpsman port up-to-date so that
	it builds GPSMan-6.1.1.

	In addition to the GPSMan-specific items below, I believe that
	there is no longer a need to support a FreeBSD-specific tarball
	of his work; accordingly, the port's Makefile will not have some
	of the gross hacks required (as far as I know) to support such a
	construct, as the original Makefile for 6.0.1 (ref. PR 50179)
	did.  This is a relief.  :-}


* support for Spanish contributed by Alberto Morales (amd77_at_gulic.org).

* new options:
    * user unit for altitude (metres, feet); suggested by Chuck Cox
    * map default projection, map default position format.
    * default line width for representing routes, tracks and polylines.
    * MapGuide text format default version. 

* route waypoints in GPSMan data files must now be given in full, using
  names only is no longer supported; there is a new utility wpsinfull.tcl
  in the util directory to convert old files.

* polylines as a new data type, to be used as background for the map;
  suggested by David Kaplan (dmkaplan_at_ucdavis.edu).

* creation of a new waypoint at a given distance and bearing from an
  existing one; asked by Alessandro Palmas (alpalmas_at_tin.it).

* routes and tracks now have colours that can be changed.

* speed graph for tracks; suggested by Paulo Quaresma (pq_at_di.uevora.pt).

* climb rate graph for tracks; suggested by Paul Scorer
  (P.Scorer_at_leedsmet.ac.uk) who kindly provided a noise-reduction
  filter for the data.

* 2D plots can now be resized; code contributed by Martin Buck

* 2D elevation and speed graphs can now be plotted against time instead
  of total distance.

* the symbol of each waypoint in a group can be changed from the group
  window; code contributed by Jean H. Theoret (ve2za_at_rac.ca).

* computation of distance along line on the map, extending previous
  measurement between two points; suggested by Victor Yip

* control window or confirmation for slow operations; suggested by David

* support for GPX export format, both for exportation and importation
  (including files produced by GPSBabel), contributed by Valère Robin

* exportation of waypoints and tracks in OziExplorer format; contributed
  by Alessandro Palmas.

* importation of the 2003/2004 version of MapGuide; from information
  sent by Heiko Theide (Heiko.Thede_at_gmx.de). There will be conversion
  errors if the version of the file is different from that given by the

* importation/exportation of MapGuide files no longer depends on the
  receiver brand; asked by Alessandro Palmas.

* importing NMEA log from file as a track (Garmin variant only); asked
  by Siegfried Leisen (lei_at_cray.com).

* importing/exporting Shapefile files in position formats other than
  decimal degrees for latitude/longitude and metres for altitude, and
  datums other than "WGS 84". With gpsmanshp version 1.1 it is now
  possible to read Shapefile polygons.

* importation of IGC (FAI GNSS) data files; asked by Paul Scorer.

* support for TFW (Tiff World File metadata format) files for
  geo-referencing images; asked by Paolo Cavallini (cavallini_at_faunalia.it).

* partial support for OziExplorer map files for geo-referencing images;
  asked by Eric Spierings (ericsp_at_odont.uio.no).

* support for grades (centesimal degrees) as signed floats.

* using the central/false longitude of a projection to fix the range of
  possible longitude values; this corrects problems with longitude values
  near E180 and have implications on how points and lines are displayed in
  small-scale maps.

* new projections:
    * CRT Italian projection and grid, from information sent by
      Alessandro Palmas.
    * Austrian projection and grid (Bundesmeldenetz); suggested by
      Alessandro Palmas.
    * Teale Albers projection and grid; asked by David Kaplan.
    * Albers Equal Area and Lambert Equal Area Conic projections.
    * French projections and grids; asked by Alessandro Palmas. 

* new syntax for some old commands in command-line mode, and several new
  commands, including execution of GPSMan command scripts and Tcl/Tk
  scripts; partly in answer to questions from Joakim Majander
  (Joakim.Majander_at_enprima.com) and Pascal Brisset

* explicit support for Garmin receivers (with thanks to): Geko 201
  (Christoph Dworzak, Sabine Sagner-Weigl, David Klotz), Geko 301 (Laurent
  Bonnaud), GPS5 (Matthias M. Weber), GPS12 Map (Gracjan Ziolek),
  StreetPilot 3 (Gerrit Huizenga), Garmin Rino 120 (Chuck Cox), Garmin
  Rino 110 (Alexander Damyanov), GPSMap60C (Klaus Ethgen).


* explicit support for the Garmin ForeTrex receiver, thanks to Aapo Rista

Fix: Apply the following patch & run portupgrade.  :-}
