AstroPlanner Beta Testing

Introduction

Anyone is free to download and test the latest beta version of the application. Please note that beta versions of the application have a built-in expiration date that is 120 days after the release date. After that date, you can still use it, but you'll be "nagged" to download a more recent release. This is to prevent bugs being reported on older beta versions that have already been fixed in later releases.

Restore Failing

When trying to perform a Restore v2.3.1 is unable to extract inventory form any of my backup zip files.

This happens to all archive zip files that I have saved over time. Fails even if I perform a backup and then attempt a restore with the same file to the same PC.

Upgrades & Fresh Installation have various issues

After a couple of hours of fiddling around on all the PC, here is a list of issues on a fresh installations & upgraded Installations:-

1. Can't restore inventory, reports 'can't unzip file'. Both upgrades and fresh installations.

2. The reticules only show circles & squared. lines & double files show nothing regardless of colour. Both upgrades and fresh installations.

Analysis:
The reticle drawing issue is probably a side-effect of new drawing libraries used by the application in recent builds.

Resolution:
Fixed. The reticle drawing now uses more pronounced lines. I have used a more robust Zip file library for doing the Restore/Backup functions.
