Geopaparazzi 4.4.0 is out! First RasterLite2 for the brave!

The version 4.4.0 of Geopaparazzi has been pushed to Google Play.


The main news for this release is for sure the first inclusion of RasterLite2, the spatialite raster support, in the release. This makes geopaparazzi 3Mb heavier but it is worth the price.


So to summarize:


1) RasterLite2 support


RasterLite2 is not yet in stable phase, but it is already good to play with. A first stable release should be out by begin of the next year.


For this kudos go to Mark Johnson, that took care of making this possible.


It is also Mark to supply this beatiful map of Berlin in RasterLite2 format:








A RL2 database can contain more than one map, so a review of the tile source tree has been necessary. The RL2 database is represented as folder:







And also the filter-by-type buttons had to be changed because of space issues:



But good thing is, they now remember the last used setting.








2) view the position coordinate when panning



This is a small one, but handy to many. An image explains it all:




3) and last but not least, a better center on GPS button and better GPS status on the map

This has been asked a couple of times in the list, so we thought it might be best to put them together.

Can you tell the difference?



That should be the most important changes for this release!
Enjoy!!
