After a long time we have finally concluded our conversion with Tachyon Beta 0.13. You can go directly to Download area of the site and get it.
This version is compatible with WM2005 and WM2003 using VGA or QVGA screens. That way it works in the vast majority of PDAs available, except the very old ones.
What we have is this version ?
We have tried to fix several issues related in the past months. But be aware that this is a new version and some newer bugs can appear. I've tested as much as I could to make the experience reasonable.
We have included some novelties in PC Client, were you can go to some selected sites and Tachyon's site directly. Also several issues were fixed and we will post messages with detailed help on each feature.
In Tachyon for Pocket PC a new projection was done. It is the first of several one that will be available in the following versions. You do not have problems around the poles anymore. However there is a small bug that will be corrected soon that prevents some zoom levels to show all area.
There are hardbuttons functionality and we are open for suggestions. You have two modes in Sky Charts and they can be toggled using UTILS/KEYMODE option. When you are in Map mode you can use your buttons to zoom in, zoom out, INFO, change text info sequence and legend on/off. In Telescope mode it will GOTO telescope, SYNC Telescope and SYNC Map with telescope position. We can implement these hardware buttons in any dialog and we are open for suggestions.
We expect some nasty bugs in this version, as it is the first after the conversion, but now we can fix them easily and fast.
HOW TO INSTALL
If you are a first time beta tester the follow instructions in download area. If you have older Tachyon versions installed you will install as if it was a fresh one. Tachyon will detect your older installation and will ask you if you want to retain your configuration files.
