What it is
XCSoar is an open source software gliding computer which can be compiled for a multitude of devices. The main developer is Max Kellermann and there are necessarily strict coding acceptance criteria for changes to be taken into the official codeline and releases. This is no guarantee of features and bug fixes being accepted however and so I now produce my own releases for those wishing to take them.
Changes that haven't been accepted into mainline can be found here. If and when they are deemed useful they will be removed from here after they have been merged in.
My latest build is the master xcsoar v6.8.1 code with the following updates:
I have not ported across the change to stop deletion of data from the .cup file. Neither have I ported the waypoint editor button as there is a similar but now integrated feature. In pan mode, move to where you want the waypoint, press M key then press Nav, Nav, Mark Drop.Download the amended v6.8.1 KoboRoot.tgz (#377d6d2) here
My previous build was master xcsoar code as of 16/6/15 (v6.8 Alpha 7) with the following updates:
Should you have any issues, you can roll-back to my previous release by downloading from here
