Version 0.8.0.0 of the Advanced Geocaching Tool has arrived for the N900 and the Openmoko Freerunner. Changes include:
  • Fix downloading bug after November 2010 website change.
  • Rewritten coordinate handling.
  • Support editing and adding of coordinate calculation strings.
  • Faster map display.
The downloading bug was already fixed by an in-application update. If you're not using the extras-devel repository on your N900, please check the "about" menu in the application to get the update. This will, however, not update the whole application. The update will come to extras repository until the end of the month.

As I'm currently working on my diploma thesis, I don't have time for larger updates in the next months.

If you recently tried downloading the details for a geocache with the Advanced Geocaching Tool, you probably ran into a problem: An error message pops up, telling you that the cache cannot be downloaded.

This is due to a website update at geocaching.com. Users which have the extras-devel repository enabled, will get an upgrade for AGTL via the package manager. If you don't have extras-devel enabled, please click on this link (via your phone's browser) to download and install the update.

If the update works for you, please vote for the package.
