Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.26 of the Model Railroad System. This package includes a collection of libraries and programs designed to help the modeler with many of the more tedius aspects of his or her hobby. Included are libraries for communication with Chubb and Lenz XPressNet networks, a user-mode driver for the Rail Driver control console, a library to parse XTrkCAD layout files, as well as utilities for computing dropping resistors, camera view areas, creating railroad time tables, and a switch-list based freight car forwarder system. There are several updates in this release:
Fixed a pile of SWIG warnings: Warning 124 (language in typemap depreciated) and Warning 509 (Overloading [with default values]).
Cleaned up C++ code to remove various compiler warnings: comparison of signed and unsigned, missing value returns in non-void functions, might be unitialized variables, unused variables, and unhandled cases in switch statements.
Minor fixes to the installer.
Fixed the RPM spec file to not strip executables. Stripping the executables trashes the starpacks.
Fixed a few minor packaging problems (missing files).
This is mostly a minor maintanence release.
