Change Logs

Version: 3.15-2.1
* Tue Nov 24 2015
- Added missing requirements %{libgps} and %{libQgps} for devel package
* Sun Nov 08 2015
- Update to version 3.15
  * Fix a rare crash bug related to devices becomin inaccessible
    while timed out.
  * Accept NMEA 4.1 GSV sententences with the trailing signal-ID field.
  * Fixed incorrect decode of south latitudes in AIS Type 17 messages.
  * splint has been retired; this removes almost 2KLOC of annotations.
  * chrpath is no longer a build dependency. Corrected Beidou/QZNSS display
    in the Python clients so the graphics don't look like SBAS.
- Changes from version 3.14
  * Skyview support for the Beidou and QZSS constellations in the
    NMEA0183 driver.
  * ntpmon rename to ntpshmmon - it doesn't actually monitor NTP itself.
  * New HOWTO on the website: "Introduction to Time Service".
- Remove gpsd-3.13-ntpshm.patch; fixed on upstream release
* Sat Mar 07 2015
- Cleanup spec file with spec-cleaner
- Add gpg signature
- Add gpsd-3.13-ntpshm.patch
- Install unit files
- Update to 3.13
  * compiler.h inclusion removed for gps.h so it's standalone
    for /usr/include.
  * TOFF JSON report gives the offset between GPS top of second and
    clock time.
  * A new ntpmon tool supports capturing clock samples from NTP
    SHM segments.
- Changes for 3.12
  * The daemon's power utilization has been reduced by changing
    from non-blocking to blocking I/O; this may be significant
    on mobile devices.
  * Better protection against false matches of Inland AIS messages;
    thisrequired a libgps version bump to 22 (as a side effect,
    per-devicefootprint has decreased).
  * PPS feature is no longer markedexperimental/unstable.
  * Sentence tag fields have been dropped from the JSON reports.
  * GNSS and GLONASS SKY reports are now merged.
  * Addressed versions of AIS Type 25 and 26 are now handled.
  * The 'nmea' build option is now 'nmea0183'.
  * New 'minimal' option sets all boolean options not explicitly
    set on the build command line to false.
  * The 'limited_max_devices' option is now 'max_devices'; the
    'limited_max_clients' option is now 'max_clients'
  * The previously deprecated 'libQgpsmm' option has been
    removed; use 'qt'.
  * A bug fix for error modeling when NMEA 0183 reports empty DOP fields.
  * On OS X, the "osx-pl203" driver has been explicitly listed
    as unsupported.
  * The last remnants of the old pre-JSON query protocol have
    been removed from the client library.
* Thu Jan 15 2015
- Update to version 3.11
  * A bug that prevented track interpolation has been fixed.
  * We now get vertical error position and speed estimates from the
    u-blox driver rather than having to interpolate them.
  * Some unusual AIS talker IDs (NMEA 4.0 station classes) are supported.
  * chrpath is no longer a dependency for building and testing, and
    now defaults to 'no'.
  * Full systemd support.
  * Fixes for handling large PPS offsets.
  * Improved recovery from device flakeouts, gpsmon argument parsing.
- Disable chrpath
* Tue Nov 25 2014
- Added python-gpsd requires for gpsd-clients
* Mon Oct 06 2014
- Respect CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS.
- Use fvisibility-inlines-hidden to build C++ code, note
  that the build system is buggy and uses CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS
  for the same purpose.
- Remove xorg libs buildrequires, they are never directly used.
* Mon Dec 09 2013
- update to version 3.10
  AIS: Adds gps2udp, an AIS data relay, split24 option supports
  passing through Type 24 halves; support for Inland AIS; "scaled" no
  longer controls dumping of controlled-vocabulary fields; instead,
  the're always dumped numerically and as text, with text in an
  attribute name generated by appending "_text" to the name of the
  base attribute. The packetizer's handling of write boundaries not
  coinciding with packet boundaries is improved.  Better support for
  mode and speed switching in the UBX driver.  PPS message now ships
  nsec. PPS events are visible in gpsmon. Time-reporting fix to TSIP.

* Mon Oct 28 2013
- Update to version 3.9
  + Note to packagers: this is an urgent release that fixes a possible
    DoS or security hole!  Armor the AIS driver against an implausible
    overrun attack.  A (different) fix for our first malformed-packet
    crash since about 2007. Minor improvements to the NMEA2000
    driver. New FAQ entry on how to know WAAS/EGNOS is working.

  + gpsd no longer emits probe strings to unidentified USB devices at startup.
  + JSON timestamps in TPV and SKY are now ISO8601 rather than seconds since

    data source.
  + Serious bitrot in the NTRIP support has been fixed - it was
    probably nonfunctional for several releases before this.
  + Fixed buggy display of satellite-used flags in cgps.
