Upgrade from 2.11 to 2.20

DESIGN ISSUES

Upgrade from 2.11 to 2.20

For .NET you must do the following changes in your application:

-> You must call NmeaParser.Dispose() before exiting the application.
-> If not multi-threaded, you must set NmeaParser.Parent = this (your form) or NmeaParser.Parent = Me (VB.NET)
-> (CF only) GpsToolsNETcf and GpsViewNETcf has changed names to GpsToolsNET and GpsViewNET
-> this.Controls.Add(objParser) should be removed. GpsToolsNET does not inherit Control anymore.
-> Position.Datum is changed from short to the enum GpsToolsNET.Datum
-> Position.Grid is changed from short to the enum GpsToolsNET.Grid
-> Map.Position, Ellipse.Position, etc... does not make a copy of the Position object assigned to it any more.

ActiveX Windows and Pocket PC

-> Map.Position, Ellipse.Position, etc... does not make a copy of the Position object assigned to it any more.

LICENSING ISSUES

The licenseing models for 2.11 and 2.20 are the same. If you have bought a license for 2.11 you may upgrade for free if you are developing the same application you originally bought the license for.

If you develop a new application based on GpsTools you should buy a new license accordningly.

INSTALLING

2.20 installs into:
