Cartographica 1.4.6

Cartographica 1.4.6 is a bug fix and enhancement release for Cartographica 1.4 and contains a number of bug fixes and a few minor feature additions.

OS Compatibility

Cartographica 1.4.6 requires Lion or newer (10.7.5, 10.8.5, 10.9.4+, or 10.10) in order to function correctly. We take the process of removing support for older versions of the OS very seriously, but there are many new features that we could not reasonably support on versions prior to 10.7.Customers using OS X 10.6 will need to remain on the 1.2 versions of Cartographica, which is available, but no longer being actively supported (since 6/1/2013).

Future Compatibility

Coming with the release of version 1.5 of Cartographica, we are expecting to increase the requirements again.The likely jump will be to 10.10, due to both the visual language change, important OS features in that will allow us to support auto-save in a reasonable way, and the ability to provide scripting in Javascript in addition to AppleScript (see Apple's information on this expansion in the Javascript for Automation note.At that time, we will be putting the 1.4 versions into critical maintenance only, which means that they will be receiving bug fixes for crucial bugs for at least 6 months from the time of the announcement.We will continue to provide access to the older software via our web site (as we have with versions 1.1 and 1.2), and will continue to provide support via our ticketing system.

Known issues

1.4.6 has the following known problems:

  • We are still trying to track down some circumstances when on 10.9+ systems certain areas of the screen do not immediately refresh.If you experience this problem, please report it.If you can figure out what series of commands makes it happen, please let us know.If it does happen to you, zoom the map and then go back to your previous size and the problem should go away.
  • Grid labels do not show up
  • Grid label sample text can be edited–should just be able to change the text attributes

Changes since 1.4.5
