I know the updates have been a long time coming...  As a long time user and satisfied customer, I am really starting to wonder what is taking so long?  A lot of promises have been made, but very little progress it seems.

A loyal airnav customer who is starting to really wonder...and is the provider for Canada's largest airport  CYYZ.

Best regards,

Hi CYYZGUY,

Have a look at the development update thread which will answer your query. http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=7206.120

The beta has been under test, this has been assessed and has been returned to Airnav for further development and a further beta is awaited.

As I said John the Beta was under test and the results of the testing have been returned to Airnav for further work, cant be any straighter than that.

Beta testing of the new Windows client software version is going on as the first version was released to some beta testers. We are now correcting the reported errors and we will be back with more information.

I think a public Beta is well over due, I get fed up with all this " behind closed door " stuff, and people having to keep asking about progress, other companies release it to the general public, at least then we know something is being worked on.

Oliver14,

An early release of a Beta before it is ready and in a suitable condition to be released would be completely irresponsible and would lead to a barrage of complaints and no company would be any different.  As one of the testers I would not agree to the release of a beta in such a condition.

I have made sure that users are kept up to date between this and the Development Update thread without people having to ask as has Dev and a realease of an unsuitable beta wouldnt add anything to the process.

This recent popped up in my inbox......

"Do you have a mode-s receiver and it's not a RadarBox?
Want to share data to RadarBox24.com?

We've started today beta testing of our brand new Data Sharing application.
Apply now and benefit from new features when they become available."

Sounds like that's a beta in full swing? Nothing to with us though obviously.

Hopefully AirNav use different dev team to develop share SW from bug fix team.

Bratters

If you read it you will see that it refers to Radarbox24 and not Radarbox, two different things completely.

The website deals with data that has already been handled and is available on the server, whereas the box software has got to process the data before sending it to the server, 2 completely different processes.

Alan,

I agree, that it's two completely different products. But from the past we know that AirNav only seems to have a very small DEV team that is working on all those different things (e.g. ShipTrax, server crashes, RadarBox24 and RadarBox). So to me it seems that AirNav still focuses on developing new products and not really on finalising a new version of the RadarBox software.
But I am not surprised about that anymore.
Actually I will be very surprised if there will be a new Radarbox version within the next 3 years. It's been already more than half a year since AirNav said they were going to fix the existing bugs as soon as possible. And it has been many years since those bugs have been reported.
In terms of bugfixing a product AirNav is the worst company I ever dealt with!

And honestly, it doesn't help me to read about very slow progress and bad excuses why there is still no new release. The only thing that would me is a fixed version of the software. I don't care about all the internal processes and why they are so bad.
And this statement "As one of the testers I would not agree to the release of a beta in such a condition." doesn't sound like there will be a new version soon. Sounds more to me as if the dev team doesn't really know what they're doing and making it even worse.

And if AirNav wanted to tell us something useful they would tell us what has already been fixed and which issues are still outstanding. So that we can get an impression of how many things still need to be done to be able to estimate how long that might take. Everything else is simply useless!

New release date anticipated to be the 12th of Never.......

These threads are highly entertaining!!

The only problem is, I've lost count of how many different ones we've had with so much ambiguity and FALSE hope......
