Hi Omar,
Can't download Setup 2.32, the following file seems to be a problem for the Anti-Virus (Avast):

I think this is a false positive by the anti virus. That file is a fairly large bitmap (35MB) that compresses
very well. So the antivirus takes it for a "decompression bomb" (a small compressed file that grows
a lot when decompressed, taking up space in your hard drive). I'm sure this one is not going to explode.
I suppose there is a way to ignore the antivirus diagnostic, but that's up to you.

Version 2.33 release notes

Postby omar » Wed Nov 19, 2014 1:21 pm

VRTool version 2.33 release notes (19/nov/2014)

1) Added a new tool: "Fixed TWA track designer".
Previous versions had a [x]checkbox to design tracks with
fixed wind angle. I just added a new tool button, more accessible.
Note that you can switch between the fixed course and fixed TWA
track tool while designing the same track. The checkbox is gone.

2) Fixed problem with wind grid selection and interpolation.
(in previous version, checking/unchecking a given forecast
in the listbox did not change the interpolated wind).
Thanks NShar for pointing the problem.

3) To ensure the integrity and security of VRTool executable
and installer files, they are now signed using Microsoft Authenticode.
Instead of "Unknown Publisher", Windows will display
"Carvalho e Reis Processamento de Dados Ltda" (me)
as publisher when you download and run the VRTool installer.

If you see this publisher, you can be sure that the file was not
changed while on server or being downloaded to your computer.

Update here

Version 2.34 - 15-dec-2014

Release notes:

- Changed Weather Routing to improve upwind results.
- New button to add a great circle line between WR end points.
- New button to set WR track and isochrones color ( select color before inserting )

Note: There is a new checkbox in WR options with text
"prune by distance to destination"
This is an experimental thing. I suggest you leave it unchecked.

I also added a parameter
"isochrone point count". Suggested value is 200.

To update, go to download page
