Board » General Discussion » WANTED: Testers new client

Hello all,

First let me bring you the good news that a SOLer has stepped up a while ago and started work on a new HTML5 client. We hope this client will ultimately replace the current Flash client, as Flash support gets removed from browsers over the next years.

This new HTML5 client is now ready for some testing. We would like to select a handful of people that want to (1) test the new client and (2) be a guide to the new client once everyone else starts using it.

As someone in this group
(1) you will communicate with each other about their findings and maintain a list of bugs and feedback together, and
(2) Once we believe the most important issues are all resolved, we will open the new client to the public and we would like you to answer questions in chat/forum when you are online and generally help people get started. If new problems are discovered, you can add them to the list.

For (1) it would be nice if some of the people in the group have some affection/knowledge of web technologies or software testing.

For (2) it would be nice if you are an active SOLer that is available in chat relatively frequently. It would be good to have some people from the non-English communities, like for example French, Italian and Spanish. But communication within the group and with us will be in English. Also SOLers from the Americas and Australasia are most welcome to join in order to have our "guides" spread over all time zones.

If you are interested to be part of this group of "early adopters", please send an e-mail to my @sailonline.org address: huib@
And if you know of people that may be interested, but sure to point them to this post.
I'm in... of course!!
ME!
I am user testing the new client. I would like the option to not have the night time effect, to have a sound when the new weather arrives and to be able to use the ruler to produce a Great Circle as we could with the old client. Otherwise it seems to work just fine.

When I went to set a start time on Silverrudder, as my router will not take the start, the clock was light years away from the right year and month. Presumably so that the programmers are not disturbed?

Current Races:

Return from Lindisfarne 2019
In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Silverrudder 2019
Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2019
