Revision as of 15:01, 5 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.

World Wind 1.4 requires .NET 2.0 while World Wind 1.3.6 requires .NET 1.1 and is intended for users in corporate or educational IT environments who aren't able to update to .NET 2.0. If you maintain your own PC then get install .NET 2.0 and use World Wind 1.4. World Wind 1.3.6 should eventually be identical to 1.4 with the exception of any new features that might require .NET 2.0.

1.4 Download

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

  1. Download the file
  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.

1.3.6 Bugs

Most of the things broken in 1.4 are broken in 1.3.6 too

1.4 Bugs

  • ZoomIt! url needs to be changed to or preferably
  • WW-642 - ZIP SRTM ISSUES causes spiky terrain (has anyone actually seen this with the current build?)
  • Global placefinder does not work
  • Weird issues with OnMars layer, including blurry islands and WW-638
  • WW-630 - image overlay needs precision fix fix
  • Web browser:
    • entering p, l, v, b into the address field enables/disables WW functions - layer manager, WMS browser...)
    • after changing orientation V<->H (and resizing WW window) the browser might be hidden
    • Links from icons in World Wind don't open up in the web browser
    • Links with target="_blank" attribute open new IE window
  • WW-650 Atmospheric scattering is enabled for all planets
  • WW-651 Stars show over atmospheric scattering and the Sun
  • WW-649 Sun shading - Sun position is correct only for the Earth
  • Sun shading - Does not work properly for Jupiter (shadows everywhere - day side seems to pop out sometime...)
  • Planetary Rings are off - need recenter fix
  • If compass is on behind the Layer Manager you end up clicking the compass instead of the Layer Manager
  • Should be able to choose if icon descriptions are shown (new feature, not a bug)
  • Waving flags didn't appear
  • NRL Weather plug-in still has broken links Here's a fixed version of the xml file, the images might not all be in the right spot, but the majority of them should be. NRL_Monterey.xml
  • WW-648 Should be a time reset button
  • Some functions (eg. ModelFeatures !) won't work for french users (at least), due to parsing errors : should add CultureInfo.InvariantCulture to parsing instructions in...
    • PluginSDK/ConfigurationLoader.cs, ll. 2010-2021 : in Convert.ToSingle instructions (should be the same for commented addWater function a few lines below)
    • WorldWind/NRLWeather.cs, ll. 237-240 : in Double.Parse instructions
    • WorldWind/ShapeFileLoader.cs, ll. 857 and 889 : in Float.Parse instructions
      • Fixed these and many other CultureInfo bugs found by FxCop, updated files are here, should just have to unzip into source tree. There probably still more to fix, is there an automated way to do that?
    • Plugin PlanetaryRings.cs, ll 162-163 : Double.Parse Get fixed .cs here (v1.1)
  • Amount of information logged to WorldWind.log should be reduced (the logs are huge now because it was built in debug mode, a release build will cut down the amount of logging)
  • WMS Browser: couldn't connect to GLOBE server (System FormatException: Input String was not in a correct format) Server side error again.
  • Stars move in the wrong direction (from West to East).
  • Splash screen does not show loading status messages (AFAIR it is supposed to work this way) - and seems to flicker ?
  • linefeatures are always extruded to ground. (even with <ExtrudeHeight> option explicitly set to 0).
  • Turning off Blue Marble layer changes other layers to white

Minor bugs

  • Compass 3D and scale bar show a light rectangle overlay (should be transparent)
  • Compass 3D and scale bar position and size and not saved across sessions
  • Timecontroller doesn't scale (as nicely as Compass 3D)
  • Compass 3D only shrinks against bottom and right-hand side borders. (timecontroller doesn't do this at all)
  • Help->Walktrough points to old site ( WW-647 fixed in SVN
  • Help->About World Wind - the image doesn't fit
  • NRL Weather plug-in still has broken links
  • Compass doesn't have an icon to turn it on as in previous versions
  • Clicking icons on the toolbar (Layer Manager, Lat/Lon lines) doesn't change the View menu
  • Shall we remove duplicated add-ons/plugins? (i.e. Flags of the World/Waving Flags, Atmosphere plugin/Atmospheric scattering)
  • ScreenOverlays for icons are not visible (they work in 1.3.6)
  • Network XML requests contain BBOX param (ie. .../index-1.3.4.xml?BBOX=-177.3730309438,-95.980852772773,2.6269690562001,84.019147227227)
