Version 3.0 is now available.
Version 3.0.3 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights. I still need to work out how to bring the grid back in the lakes, but the islands are now visible. This version has a few new features. described in the documentation.

Version 3.0.4 fixes the map polygon rendering order problem with the Lake Superior Lights with grids now visible.
Version 3.0.5 now really fixes the map polygon rendering problem with the Lake Superior Lights.

For the fix to work, in any of your race folders, you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

This version has a couple of new features that are not yet documented. You can toggle the DC text on and off, and toggle the wind barbs on and off. Hover on the button to see what they do.
There were still a few problems in 3.0.5 with polygons not being visible. The routine to change the polygon direction (clockwise / anti-clockwise) was not working. Version 3.0.6 fixes this problem.

Remember, for the fix to work you must delete any map files that exist in the race folder maps directory that are named with race_<race id>.map. For this race, you must delete the file race_1092.map and then restart AGL.

There is a problem in 3.0.6 for a race straddling 180E where the new libraries I'm using were forcing the longitude to be between -180 and 180. This in turn caused the Mercator projections to fail. Version 3.0.7 fixes this problem.

For the fix to work you must delete race_1098.map if that file exists in the race folder maps directory and then restart AGL.

Sorry - mea culpa!
That should be Hi Kipper

Hi Svein, did you get this working? Looks like Java is not installed correctly.
There are a few problems with the maps as stored on the server which have manifested themselves in this race. I have been meaning to clean up the maps for a while and did that last night. maps_v2.zip which is here fixes the problems. To install theses maps, download maps_V2.zip and do the following
1. Close any running AGLs.
2. In your tile library, rename maps to maps.old
3. Unzip maps_V2.zip into your tile library folder. You should now have a maps and a maps.old folder in there.
4. Delete race_1104.map from the maps folder of your Melbourne to Hong Kong race folder
5. Restart AGL.
6. Delete maps.old

Martinique Sprint 2020
One of the surprising things about France is that you find nice little departments of it everywhere; here, par example, in the Caribbean Sea's Windward Isles. Yes, Martinique is part of the European Union, and for a few Euro coin you can charter an F18 catamaran to explore the beaches along its eastern coast. There's an online race on here as well on Saturday, January 25; just 21.5nm from Île Cabrits to Le Robert. Why not join in?

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
