OpenPlotter 3 roadmap
#1
Information 
Hi all, first of all say sorry for being missing from the forum, we were busy (as usual...). I will try to answer some threads asking for news on apps pointing them to this one.

A new Raspberry Pi OS version based on Debian bullseye is published and this means that we have to publish a new OpenPlotter version too. We tough this transition would be fast and we were happy because some important changes were waiting for a major revision, but the Devil is in the details and we found some problems soon that must be fixed to move on. No big issues, just more time consuming than expected. I will try to do some planning here and comment on some changes.

One of the most important thing is that we have a new mantra: no docs, no app. That means that this time we get really serious with documentation and no app will be released without being fully documented.

OpenPlotter 3 official images will be 32-bit and 64-bit. OpenPlotter 3 apps will be also tested in Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy 64-bit for desktop, laptops and Raspberry.

GREEN means stable.
ORANGE means beta.
RED means in progress.

  2. OpenPlotter Settings app
  3. OpenPlotter Signal K installer app

Thanks Sailoog and all those working on openplotter 3. I'm looking forward to the beta release - unless I can help in earlier stages?

Help with code and docs is always wanted and appreciated.

docs are really time consuming because English is not our first language. Maybe if I create the index of a chapter adding also the screenshots, somebody could "fill the gaps" with the text and save us a lot of time. I would send a link for a functional image to test the app.

I really appreciate your help guys, thinking about how to organize a test round and documentation work...

I have been testing the updates on the Raspberry Pi OS 64bit running on a Raspberry 4 8GB and I am really impressed by performance. I have not found many problems on this 64 bit beta version (you need to update all packages to fix some important issues) so thinking seriously about parallel development of OpenPlotter 32 and 64 bit... I will try to set the test round for both systems so you can evaluate.
