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.
Release Notes: This release contains a few new device drivers and lots of bug squishing.
Release Notes: Many changes were made, perhaps the most obvious being the switch from the GPL to the BSD license to facilitate commercial use. Drivers have been updated. Regular regression testing and automated audits with valgrind, splint, and code analyzers are performed. Unbounded string functions have been eliminated. Performance and reliability is improved. New optimizations were made for embedded deployments. Higher integrity data handling was implemented. New client programs have been added. The gpsd on-the-wire protocol has changed; hand-rolled parsers should be verified against the documentation.
Release Notes: gpsd has undergone a total cleanup and rewrite. C and Python libraries are now available, providing a simple API for querying the daemon. NMEA conformance has been updated. Command-line options have been simplified. There is actual documentation. A new gpsprobe program determines GPS capabilities and generates an error scattergram from fixes.
Release Notes: In this version, em.c now uses time.h, there is improved Earthmate support, setsockopt was added to add SO_REUSEADDR, so that gpsd can stop and immediately restart, and support was added for bitrates higher than 38400, needed for the SIRF chipset. A longitude of under 100 degrees is now printed zero-padded as needed, similarly with a latitude of under 10, and there are fixes so that the GGA sentence no longer erroneously prints fix type (2/3) instead of fix quality, and calculates fix type correctly.
Release Notes: Several bugfixes, and removal of non-ANSI comments (//).
