gpsd is a daemon that listens to a GPS or Loran receiver and translates the positional data into a simplified format that can be more easily used by other programs, like chart plotters. The package comes with a sample client that plots the location of the currently visible GPS satellites (if available) and a speedometer. It can also use DGPS/ip.

Release Notes: This release doesn't fail when chrpath is unavailable; it falls back to static linking. This helps people not running Linux.
Release Notes: GPSD-NG, the new JSON-based command protocol, is now deployed. As a consequence, AIS is now fully supported in both the daemon and client. Detection of the end of a fix-reporting cycle is now reliable. Accordingly, data is accumulated from cycle start and the "J" (nojitter) option on the both server and client is gone. A new driver was added for Motorola Oncore receivers. gpsfake can now accept multiple log files, interleaving test sentences from each. gpsd now accepts error estimates from the NMEA $GPGBS sentence.
Release Notes: New drivers, new regression tests, new optimizations, and new correctness features.
Release Notes: The C++ bindings, Garmin USB support, and multiple instances of ntp pps thread starting were fixed. Handling of odd PPS signals was improved. The eye candy in the PHP visualizers was fixed.
Release Notes: While work has occurred on other drivers since the last release, the key reason for pushing this release is to fix a nasty brown-paper-bag bug in the handling of leap years. This caused the date to be wrong by one day until the leap day in February.
