Sliver v1.4 has just been released and is available at http://www.sliversoftware.com/download.htm
. This significant release incorporates a number of new features, most of which were previously leaked at http://www.sliversoftware.com/forum/index.php?topic=50.0
Additional features rolled into this release include new Google Earth Connections Plot options to connect pairs of ground coordinates with lines following the surface of the Earth along great circles, or by vertical parabolic arcs above great circles. There is also a brand new Google Earth Pillar Plot feature that draws vertical rods from ground coordinates with optional spheres on top--hard to explain, so please see the examples
. You can see screenshots of these on the features page at http://www.sliversoftware.com/features.htm
and details at either http://www.sliversoftware.com/versionchangelog.htm
or more easily on page 3 of the updated user's manual.
A new version 1.2.5 of DataTools, a standalone data-munging application that mirrors the functions in the DataTools menu of Sliver, can also be downloaded from http://www.sliversoftware.com/download.htm
. This version works better with data having leading zeros and with file paths containing a dot.
Thanks, everyone, for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this new release or Sliver in general.
