Description david 2006-05-11 05:20:11 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-6.3.

	The port is able to make use of a serial port (for
	communicatiing with a GPS device); since the names of our
	serial ports have changed as of FreeBSD 6.0, and we still
	want to support 4.x and 5.x for some additional time, I was
	unable to use the simple "patch" that I had been using to
	munge the Linux serial port name to a FreeBSD one.  It's
	possible that in coding the changes to the port's Makefile
	that I've done something that ought to be done differently;
	please feel free to contact me about it.

	Please note that one result of the above approach is that the
	patch for util/exerciser.tcl is no longer needed.  I know how
	to get diff to mention "new" files, but not how to get it to
	let someone know that an old file is to be removed.  So I guess
	that needs to be done by hand (by the committer -- e.g.,
	"rm files/patch-excerciser.tcl && cvs rm files/patch-excerciser.tcl").

	Here are the documented changes from 6.2.1 to 6.3:

	- new options:
	  - the information displayed when the pointer goes over a
	    track point on the map can now be the point number or
	    its date, depending on a new option; suggested by Hans
	    Olzem (holzem_at__cantv.net).
	  - font and icon sizes can now be configured for better
	    usage in high-definition displays.

	- the command-line mode is no longer restricted to Unix/Linux
	  systems; in answer to a request from Wes Johnston

	- short names of user projections can no longer have blanks.

	- items may be associated with a map background image that
	  will be displayed when the item is displayed on an empty
	  map; suggested by Paulo Quaresma (pq_at__di.uevora.pt).

	- last directories visited when reading/writing files for each
	  file type are now remembered and kept in the saved state;
	  suggested by Paul Scorer (p.scorer_at__leedsmet.ac.uk).

	- time stamp and distance are now displayed in the TR animation
	  dialog; asked by Tim Jacobs (twjacobs_at__gmail.com).

	- in travel mode it is now possible to follow a LN.

	- enhanced support for the GPX format, including exportation
	  of WP altitudes (suggested by Matt Wilkie, maphew_at__zworg.com);
	  with thanks to Valere Robin.

	- better support for Ozi .map files; thanks to Paulo Quaresma
	  (pq_at__di.uevora.pt) and Kari Likovuori

	- new datum Deutsches Hauptdreiecksnetz, from the Frida data
	  set, available from the Free Vector-Geodata Osnabrück

	- several menu-buttons that could create long menus of items
	  replaced by buttons launching dialogs with listboxes.

	- new layout of the WP edit/show window.

	- support for the Garmin USB protocol in Linux kernels
	  having the \verb+garmin_gps+ kernel driver; with thanks
	  to the author of the kernel driver, Hermann Kneissel, for
	  guidance on using it; thanks are also due to Ron Schmars
	  (ron_at__schmars.com) and Asbjørn Djupdal
	  (asbjoern_at__djupdal.org) for their help when trying to
	  make an implementation based on the \verb+libusb+ library.

	- other updates to Garmin support following the specifications
	  made available on September 2004.

	- almanac data can be retrieved from Garmin receivers and
	  displayed if in graphical mode, or saved to a file if in
	  command-line mode.

	- explicit support for several Garmin receivers or their
	  new firmware versions, including: eTrex Legend C, eTrex
	  Vista C, Forerunner 301, GPS 60, Quest, Rino 130; with
	  thanks for all those who sent protocol lists: Jerry Walker,
	  Vlatko Kosturjak, Alan Rogers, Peter MacDonald, Luca
	  Marletta, Ariel Garcia, Cliff Dugal, Imre Simon, José
	  Maria Alonso, Dennis Langenfeld, Eric Smith, Simon Wood,
	  Al Nikolov, Oliver Theis, Chris Smith, Robert Joop, Jan
	  Arne Fagertun, Marques Johansson, Dan Bluestein, Steven
	  Kollmansberger, David Bannon, Harry Palmer, Wes Johnston,
	  Frank Sommer.

Fix: Apply the following patch, ensure that files/patch-exerciser.tcl
	is removed, then

		portupgrade gpsman-6.2.1

Committed, thanks! 
Please remember to state the category in the PR subject, ie. astro/gpsman, 
so that we lazybones don't have to locate the port first :)
