What’s New

[Beta 1.0, Build 136] - 2022-01-05


The focus of this build is on the behaviour of the formula editor:

  • Much improved behaviour for when the suggestions should show up, i.e., just in beginning, when typing a dot, or pressing Esc; and not as much when navigating the cursor or selection around.
  • Does not show an empty suggestions window, unless you press Esc to specifically bring it up.
  • Maintain previous selection in suggestions window when typing.
  • Provide partial completions for each possible case of a switch for textual values or formula results.
  • Provide partial completions not just for prefix but any sequential match, i.e., after a switch(title), typing .chw matches .case("Hello World") if there’s a location with the title “Hello World”.
  • Minor style tweaks, shrinking it to fit number of suggestions and applying tint colour to the selected row’s background.

Squashes a bunch or related bugs related to formulas:

  • Fix to the find/2 formula on long strings, which
  • Fix partial completions broken when there’s a range string (e.g., ..<)
  • Fix comparison of Strings to sub-strings, e.g., title[0] == "A"
  • Fix highlight after a closing bracket, e.g., switch(...).case(...)
  • Fix highlight of range expression within a case, e.g., switch(number).case(0..<50, ...)
  • Fix highlight of defaults keys such as title or name

And a few more related bug fixes for presets and fields:

  • Changing the formula for one part of a preset should keep it selected
  • Fix not being able to add a field for an “additional data” key
  • Fix available schemas missing formulas on GeoSubs
  • Fix undo/redo when changing saved presets

Various further improvements:

  • Rename “New Subscription” to “New from URL”
  • KML importer now guesses KML namespace from the XML content
  • Addresses a memory leak from the location pop-up on macOS
  • Style tweaks, in particular for the “New from URL” view

And, lastly, this build is compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur again. Please report any issues that you find on Twitter, in the forum or on GitHub.

[Beta 1.0, Build 135] - 2021-12-01

  • [New] Can now apply multiple styles to each item, by returning a list, e.g., [fixedCircle(5km), pin("")] would show a circle and a pin for each location.
  • [New] Experimental(!) “Index as…” option on collections to index them using a given id. This can then be used for efficient look-up from other collections using the new lookup(coordinate, 'index-id') formula. Note: This does not yet persist across restarts and only works for polygons.
  • [New] Exporting an item of a collection on Mac now brings up save dialog
  • [New] “Subscribe to URL…” button when creating a collection (#419)
  • [New] Templates can now include instructions, e.g., see the “Trips” template.
  • [Change] Add current location from a callout on the circle on the map, removing the dedicated “+” > “Current Location” option
  • [Change] Updated and simplified the look of the screen that pops up when moving a location to another collection (or using the add-* URL schemes) (#411)
  • [Change] In-line editing of location details (#409)
  • [Change] Exporting collections/views on Mac now works same as exporting entries (i.e., you select output format in the file picker, and have an option to simplify, too.)
  • [Change] Add to collection immediately when pin dropping on map
  • [Change] Don’t show route count when drawing or in location details; instead show aggregate length and area
  • [Change] Scripting collections (i.e., those that point at a non HTTP-URL) now get better help in the locations list if there’s no content yet.
  • [Fix] Various fixes for map animations, in particular for collections that mix polygons with pins.
  • [Fix] Fixes issue when dropping file on app icon (#410)
  • [Fix] Fixes issue where location details might stay visible when swiping to delete the location while its pop-up is visible
  • [Fix] Fixes an issue where local files might be missing in the hierarchy
  • [Fix] Pop-ups prompting for a name, now include a clear button
  • [Fix] Pressing ‘Done’ after having entered an invalid formula no longer deletes it.
  • [Fix] Sort subfolders same as root (i.e., folders first)
  • [Fix] Performance improvement by doing fewer reloads of folder items
  • [Fix] Allow deselecting last collection by command+click
  • [Fix] Style tweaks of files list (centered emoji; don’t fill folder icons; upload/download on side; adjust share info to be more like Finder’s)
  • [Fix] Style tweaks for Mac (especially for Monterey; native alerts)
  • [Fix] When drawing the colour of the colour picker, the colour on the map, and previously selected colours now stay in sync (#414)
