A new update for Manifold 8 is now available.
Changes since previous update:
(Fix) Exporting a drawing to a MIF file converts '-' in field names to '_'.
(Fix) Importing a drawing from a TAB file no longer converts fixed-length text fields to variable-length ones.
(Fix) Attempting to interpolate a surface from a set of points with constant Z using Kriging no longer hangs. (First reported by Ketch Lorne.)
(Fix) Geocoding data to a zip code centroid no longer returns incorrect data due to a problem in the Manifold Geocoding Data set. (First reported by Tanya Unangst.)
(Fix) Importing an image from a Northwood GRC / GRD file no longer shifts the image half-pixel up and right. (First reported by John Gilmer.)
(Fix) Exporting a drawing to a MIF / MID file pair writes variable-length text fields as 254-character ones, not 255-character.
(Fix) Importing or exporting a coordinate system from or to a PRJ file correctly handles Greek coordinate systems. (First reported by Alexandros Malounis.)
(Fix) Adding a coordinate to a segment of a drawing object in a map window no longer uses wrong coordinate values if the coordinate system of the drawing differs from that of the map. (First reported by Asko Kontinen.)
Importing an image or surface from an ERDAS IMG file performs significantly faster. (First reported by Dan Borman.)
(Fix) Importing an image or surface from an ERDAS IMG file no longer sometimes fails to correctly uncompress tiles. (First reported by Dan Borman.)
(Fix) Editing a drawing linked from SQL Server 2008 using versions no longer fails.
(Fix) The Value() function in the Surface - Transform dialog no longer fails to work.
(Fix) Performing a transform on a linked drawing no longer fails to stop with an error if it can not write data to the drawing during the metric normalization phase.
(Fix) The report of the number of coordinates in the surface interpolation dialog is no longer misleading. (Thanks to Colin Driscoll.)
Components linked from the same PostgreSQL data source shared the same database connection.
(Fix) Using data on a PostgreSQL data source no longer sometimes leaks a database connection.
(Fix) Attempting to delete a running script (eg, while it is stopped on a breakpoint) no longer succeeds. (First reported by Klaus Engelberg.)
(Fix) Using CUDA on a large surface no longer sometimes runs out of resources due to module leaks. (First reported by Ben Sigrist and Kevin Ross.)
The update is available for Manifold 8 editions and Manifold 8 x64 editions.
