Merkaartor 0.18.3 released
(published on 06. 09. 2016)
A new version of Merkaartor has been released, the 0.18.3. It is the
(hopefully) last bugfix release for the 0.18.3 branch and contains many minor
fixes and a few feature improvements. You can download it in the Download section.
Check out a short changelog in the
repository or a complete list of commits. Here are a few that might be of
- Mac OS X binaries available.
- Fixed compatibility with NMEA files created by Garmin GLO.
- Partially fixed printing support (but still has quality issues).
- Fixed communication with gpsd-3.12 and newer.
- Fixed issues with transparent background imagery being painted over itself.
- Improved download dialog map to allow larger zoom and area selection by dragging a rectangle around it.
- Added relation filter, allowing you to display only relations intersecting with current selection.
- Separated import of native formats and via GDAL.
- Fixed a few crashes, and many other minor bugs.
Unless some fatal issue is found, the next release will start the 0.19 series.
I have some changes already in mind, but I'm looking for suggestions. Let me
know if you have some wishes!

The web is back up
(published on 15. 03. 2015)
After some time, the merkaartor.be is back up. As the old redmine stuff was not
updated, buggy, and not secure, it was down for a long time. I've built a new,
simple site, mostly for publishing news and hosting releases. All the bug
tracking integrated in the old site will now happen on
