Release Notes

 AltosUI for iPads and iPhones is an active application that grew into being very quickly. As developers, we want this application to be the best it can be. However that takes time and attention. We worked to get all the critical features up rapidly and in doing so there are bound to be rough edges. We are hunting these down and recording anything we find on this page. Likewise, anything you our user community find and report will also be tracked on this page.

(we'll try to get updates out weekly for a bit while we address the known-issues and errata.)

Upcoming v1.7.0 Release: (planned for sometime in July. Upload to App Store for review) -OR- in later upcoming releases

- In Progress: We are working on the known issues which were not fixed in v1.6.3

- We are experimenting with a new heads-up camera view for locating your rocket after landing

- Please let us know of features that you would like to see in your AltosUI application!

 

        (NOTE: Once a flight computer is verified it means that it is tested against recorded, but real, flight(s) and proven that AltosUI performance matches AltosDroid.)

 

 

v1.6.3 Errata (discoveries since release)

- { no issues reported yet. }

 

 v1.6.3 Release 2019-05-06:

IMPORTANT: Fixes possible communications problem with TeleBT.

Known Issues: (things we are working on but were not serious enough to prevent this release.)

- Swipe to change tabs is not working correctly.

 

v1.6.3 Changes/Fixes:

- Adds Pad Marker to map view seen when walking to landed rocket.

- Fix: Adapts to the new location for the launch-sites data and adds an alert detailing when the list of launch sites can't be loaded.

 

v1.5.1 Errata (discoveries since release)

- The list of launch sites is no longer loading. User sees odd only launch site of "You must upgrade AltOS!".  This is an error.

- There is an infrequent (in most cases) problem with TeleBT communication that can lock up the TeleBT (This is fixed in version 1.6.2 now submitted to the app store.)  Thank you Lawrence G. for helping us find this!

- Swipe to change tabs is not working correctly.

 

v1.5.1 Changes/Fixes:

- Addressed possible issues with hearing telemetry from the flight computers

 

v1.3.0 Errata (discoveries since release)

- VERIFIED: TeleMetrum flight computer presents identically (update rate is different but values match. We're looking into the update rate)

- VERIFIED: TeleMega flight computer presents identically

- FIXED: Recover Tab: appears to not be showing Max Accel. correctly for TeleMega (older sample flight) we're hunting this down.

- FIXED: Recover Tab: Max Height in m NOT km!

- FIXED: Flight Tab: Range in km NOT m!

 

v1.2.1 Errata (discoveries since release)

    - none

 

v1.2.1 Released 2018-04-19:

    - Fixed: Voice narration when it shouldn't be.

    - Fixed: Height not showing on Flight Tab.

    - Fixed: Kalman height calculations not always correct.
