XCSoar 6.7.4 released
(11. Apr 2014 by max)

The fourth maintenance release of XCSoar 6.7 fixes various minor bugs:

  • graphics error in topography renderer fixed
  • the Westerboer driver ignores implausible values
  • the TNP airspace loader is less strict
  • create the “logs” directory automatically
  • show status message when switching to next turnpoint

Note that the IOIO problems with Android 4.x cannot be solved in the stable branch, because the required changes are too intrusive. Try the preview of XCSoar 6.8 which contains a fix.
