Release Notes: Xrmap now directly reads the vector formats EPS and SVG or the bitmap formats PNG, GIF, and JPEG. The GUI has been partially reworked and should be easier to navigate. The collection of SVG flags is quite complete (about 50 more entries than in the openclipart collection, including high quality vector format flags of US states).
Release Notes: This release integrates earthview, an interactive program that can display the earth topography and population density. The collection of flags has been replaced by the SVG flags from the openclipart collection. In total, this release can exploit several gigabytes of data (800 megabytes of optional compressed data to download, of which 20 are required).
Release Notes: This version includes some small fixes, a work-around for an annoying bug in recent versions of libXpm, and a correction in the Postscript macros.
Release Notes: Xrmap now features a file browser widget which is tightly integrated into the GUI, making file and theme selection easier. Several minor other enhancements have been made, including bug corrections.
Release Notes: This release introduces the ability to edit and manipulate the vector map data. The original pre-1990 CIA World Data Bank has been updated to include the new international border lines appeared since then (former USSR, former Yugoslavia, Czech Republic, Slovakia).
Release Notes: Xrmap now accepts degree-minute-second mode for reading or displaying Earth coordinates. Also support for theming has been added.
Release Notes: This version now includes a smarter algorithm for placing geographic names and avoiding any overlap of the labels. Coordinates of grid lines have also been implemented.
Release Notes: The printing routines can now produce PostScript output in vector format, leading to considerable improvements in printing quality. Also, the CIA factbook data has been upgraded to the 2002 edition.
Release Notes: This is mostly a maintenance release including some minor bugfixes and code clean-ups. The data window now has a button allowing you to link each country with a PDF document.
Release Notes: The new built-in map editor allows user-defined objects or actions to be added to the map. These could include pixmaps, colored regions, the execution of programs linked to geographical locations, and more. The locations database has been extended, and now includes 8800 airports and 90 astronomical entries.
