Build #96 – New Serial Port

Download: New Serial Port Support(5.3mb)

Quick change in this build for serial ports. The “To GPS” button uses a new method to determine your system’s serial ports. Preferences uses the old method.

If you are using a USB-to-Serial adapter, please let me know if you see different results in these two different windows.

Build #95 – CacheMate Support

Build #88 – Continued Bug Fixes

Download: MacCaching Build #88

This build is mostly bug fixes, in the sense, there are no new features. The backend has received much attention as I’m trying to avoid the memory leaks which have been causing me problems. Please let me know if you run into any issues.

To discuss this build, visit the MacCaching Beta Forum.

Build #81 – Minor Bug Fixes

Download: MacCaching Build #81 (5mb)

If you downloaded Build #80, you’ll probably get an exception when loading. This version will fix that exception. No other features have been added. I’m working on the memory leak that occurs during import and export.

Visit this forum thread to discuss this build.

Build #80 – eXplorist Support

Please note, this release is out of date. Please use a new build: http://www.maccaching.com/tags/latest-build/
Download: MacCaching Build #80 eXplorist now works in the “To GPS Button.”

You can now export a cache list (or the library) to an eXplorist, using the “To GPS” button. There will be a quick dialog to give you a chance to name the file. From the feedback by eXplorist users, I understand the filename shows up in your GPS. This will give you a chance to name it to something other than my default. If you have suggestions, let me know.

Build #77 – Partial Export Dialog

Download: MacCaching Build 77 – Only Garmin works on the export dialog

It has been a long time since my last update. Much has happened in my personal life, and it has slowed me down quite a bit. The good news is that things are finally settling down and I am able to make time for MacCaching (and Geocaching) again!

News and Update

Updates to MacCaching and MacCaching.com have been pretty slow lately. In the last few weeks I have taken a new job in a different part of the country (from Texas to Colorado). This meant doing two very different jobs in two different cities for the last 6 weeks or so. Just to give you an idea of where I am at, I can not even find my Garmin!

So, MacCaching is still in active development, just not as active as usual. In another couple of weeks I’ll be adding some features I’ve been meaning to add and releasing version 0.6.0.

Thanks for the emails in the mean time. I know there are some annoying bugs left in the latest releases (even the latest builds). I’ll be getting to them soon.

Webhost Troubles

My web hosting provider has been experiencing some issues lately.  I had to rebuild some data files to get maccaching.com back online.  So if you have trouble with part of the site, please let me know.

Latest Build: 67 Memory Leaks Stage 1

Download: MacCaching Build 67
Turns out there are some memory leaks in the XML processor I am using. This would prevent large libraries from opening. It is advisable to re-launch MacCaching after importing a GPX file (especially a large one.)

Latest Build: 07-0219 Critical Refresh Fix

Download:Download Build 07-0219
Download:Download Build 07-0219_2 (Minor changes if you downloaded the “first” 0219 release, get the new one.)

If you are using any of the Beta builds, upgrade to this one ASAP.

The XML Processor has another bug in it. Originally I was going to promote the complier I am using for MacCaching. However, I’ve encountered so many critical bugs, I can’t justify giving those guys any credit!

If you were getting a crash after editing caches, this release will fix that. The crashes didn’t cause any data loss, but caused lots of crashing.
