A new update for Manifold is now available.

Changes since previous update:

  • (Fix) Creating bounded areas no longer sometimes creates areas with holes or overlaps.

  • (Fix) Creating a topology overlay no longer sometimes fails to correctly handle areas with shared boundaries.

  • Messages for errors occurring during activation are made more specific.

  • (Fix) Exporting a drawing to MIF / MID replaces end of line characters in text values with spaces, to avoid breaking MID files (was: end of line sequences, the fix extends handling of end of line sequences to non-Windows and malformed ones).

  • (Fix) Querying import options for formats that pre-scan data to be imported no longer makes the actual import process start at 100% progress.

  • Importing a SHP file with complex metric performs noticeably faster.

  • Importing a DBF file performs noticeably faster.

  • (Fix) Transferring heights from a surface onto a drawing with areas no longer double-counts some of the pixels on area boundaries.

  • (Fix) Pasting an image as a table no longer reverses color components in the values of the Color (I) field.

  • (Fix) Importing a TIF file correctly handles 3-channel and 4-channel 16-bit data.

  • (Fix) Importing a LAS file no longer sometimes misreads projection parameters.

  • Importing an ADF data set supports sets with multiple pixel data files.

  • (Fix) Rendering a compressed image no longer sometimes renders duplicate pixel lines shifting further lines slightly up or down depending on rendering direction.

  • (Fix) Importing a JPEG or PNG file no longer ignores data in the accompanying world file.

  • (Fix) Copying and pasting a labels component no longer sometimes loses custom label formats.

  • Importing a DNG file supports more variations of raw pixel data.

  • (Fix) Exporting a coordinate system to PRJ correctly handles Mollweide systems.

  • (Fix) Exporting a coordinate system to PRJ no longer sometimes exports UTM systems as plain Transverse Mercator.

  • (Fix) Importing an ERS file no longer sometimes fails to set coordinate system units to US Survey feet.

  • (Fix) Converting text characters into vector shapes when rendering a layout to AI, PDF or PS with the "Text as graphics" option turned on no longer sometimes skips curve points on character glyphs.

  • (Fix) Attempting to delete records from a linked table via a DELETE query no longer fails with an error.

  • (Fix) Docking and undocking panes no longer sometimes fails to redraw the contents of the frame and component windows.

  • (Fix) Computing a triangulation or a Voronoi diagram no longer sometimes produces incorrect results on regular grids of points.

  • (Fix) Computing a triangulation of an area can no longer produce flat triangles at the area boundary.

  • (Fix) Attempting to import a malformed E00 file no longer sometimes crashes.

  • (Fix) Importing county data from a geocoding database no longer sometimes imports roads that do not belong to the specified counties.

  • (Fix) Reading block data in a DWG file no longer sometimes misreads Y coordinate of the block insertion point.

  • (Fix) Importing an RST file no longer misreads datums for some of the projections used in South Asia.

  • (Fix) Exporting a drawing to SQL Server 2008 or higher no longer ignores requested format for geometry data (and always writes WKB).
