Revision as of 17:22, 3 November 2006

This page is for listing of bugs that need to be squashed before there is a 1.3.6 and 1.4 release. This is the official bug list page. Be sure bugs are linked to a JIRA issue as well (if there is one). There will be no new features added, this is for bug squashing only.



1.4 Download

To download and install the latest 1.4 beta version (RC1) follow these steps:

  1. Download the zip file from this location
  2. Unzip the archive wherever you want. The best location is probably \Program Files\NASA\, it will create a separate folder from your existing WW 1.3 install.

You should be able to have 1.4 and 1.3 installed at the same time because they keep their settings in separate locations. If you have run any other builds of 1.4 then you should delete your %appdata%\NASA\World Wind\\ folder.

NOTE: World Wind 1.4 requires .NET 2.0.
