News for May 2020

    Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    For users that want a quick way to enable some of the most popular features I've created a quickstart for JBV1. It is a backup of a fresh install of JBV1 will the most popular features enabled.

    You can read more about it on the quickstart page.

    What's new in this release?

    • Long pressing a profile or sweeps from the push dialog will launch the editor directly without having to navigate to it
    • Blue highlighting of current profile/sweeps removed to avoid confusion about what's selected
    • New settings action option to launch the profile editor for the current profile on double tap, long press, or swipe gestures
    • When the current profile and/or sweeps are edited while connected to V1, changes are auto pushed upon return to the alert screen
    • New alert graph option for PAWS alerts shows changes to altitude and track over time (PAWS > Advanced, requires HD alert table)
    • Restyled PAWS alert pop-up (on tap) includes a graph similar to the alert table graph, but adds an altitude axis
    • New night mode map style option for the alert log map

    Here's an example of the alert graph for PAWS alerts:

    PAWS Graphs

    The green line with green shading below it is altitude, and the magenta line is track. For track, the bottom of the graph is 0 degrees and the top is 359.99 degrees. Aircraft doing circles or any other kind of circuit will show up as sawtooth patterns similar to the graphs above, with a sharp rise/fall in one direction followed by a more gradual fall/rise in the other direction. For the same span of time, the wider the circuit, the fewer the teeth. Shorter time spans will also result in fewer teeth.

    Graph scale is selectable among Auto (default), 3000 ft, 4000 ft, and 5000 ft. Anything above the selected scale (not auto) will show all green shading and no green line. The example above is with auto scaling.

    So what's the point of this? You can see what aircraft are doing without a map.

    This should be live in a bit.

    Master changelog for all releases.

    What's new in this release?

    • Audio Control Panel for changes to volume and audio routing (tap speaker icon or swipe on V1 alert mute icon)
    • Main volume initializers replaced by automatic volume memory (excluding demo mode)
    • Auto V1 Mode action for overrides
    • Auto V1 Mode status indicator on alert screen
    • Auto V1 Mode toggle replaces the Force Speaker toggle on the quick settings pop-up
    • V1 alert mute icon options for location, animation, and background mask
    • Dark map style with no map labels
    • Auto start notification lists enabled triggers that require the notification
    • Fixed PAWS flight path loaders not working due to API change
    • Miscellaneous UI tweaks

    Gone are the main volume initializers. JBV1 now remembers all your in-app volume changes, including for each connected Bluetooth audio device (A2DP), and will restore them on next startup (demo mode excluded).

    The new Audio Control Panel makes audio adjustments easier by enabling you to do the following from one panel:

    • View and adjust volume levels for your device's media and alert streams, with audio feedback on alert volume adjustments
    • View audio routing for both media and alert streams
    • Change audio routing for the alert stream
    • Toggle full mute on/off (full mute mutes the app and V1 until you turn it off)
    • Perform a sound check

    Launch the audio control panel by tapping the speaker icon at the bottom right of the alert screen. Here's a screenshot:

    Note: The color picker I'm using doesn't have a dialog cancel button (grrr, but I didn't like any others as much), so use your device's back button or tap outside the dialog to cancel a color change.

    Demo of secondary mode display, custom alert colors, and the Priority Alert Display's optional priority band masking (custom background/foreground, by band) and auto high-contrast (black on white). I plan to have this ready by tomorrow (Fri 5/8).
