A new update for Manifold is now available.

Changes since previous update:

  • (Fix) Importing NetCDF files no longer sometimes incorrectly imports image or surface masks.

  • (Fix) Setting the MissingValue property of an ImportRawBinary object no longer sometimes loses precision.

  • The maximum allowed length of a formula entered in the Surface - Transform dialog has been increased to about 1 MB.

  • (Fix) Rendering an ECW or JPEG2000 image no longer inverses the alpha channel.

  • The scripting engine supports IronPython 2.6.1+.

  • The CUDA engine supports Fermi devices.

  • All CUDA kernels have been adjusted to work on devices with very low amounts of memory.

  • Importing a coordinate system from a PRJ file recognizes several new variations of German datum names.

  • Importing KML files preserves CDATA information.

  • (Fix) Exporting a coordinate system to a PRJ file no longer sometimes exports extra closing bracket.

  • (Fix) Attempting to select several components in the Project pane no longer fails to work on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7.

  • (Fix) Scanning a PostgreSQL table no longer sometimes mistakes a foreign key for a primary key.

  • (Fix) Computing a bearing no longer sometimes loses accuracy.

  • (Fix) The IntersectionPoint query function has been adjusted to never return multi-point geometry.

  • (Fix) The AspectHeight, SlopeHeight and HeightCurvXxx query functions no longer ignore planar scale of the underlying surface.

  • (Fix) The HeightXxx and similar query functions no longer sometimes take values from wrong pixels (offset by 1).

  • (Fix) Editing a rank column no longer sometimes crashes.

  • (Fix) Selecting records via More Like This commands in a table window no longer selects wrong records in case the table is sorted by values of one or more columns.

  • (Fix) The Surface - Contours dialog no longer fails to suggest contouring intervals for some cases of round height ranges (eg, 0 to 100).

  • (Fix) Inserting new objects into drawings via queries no longer fails to format them.

  • (Fix) The Surface - Transform dialog formulae can use the CurvGauss function.

  • Exporting a DBF file translates NULL values (eg, coming from a linked drawing or table) to blanks or zeros, according to column type, instead of throwing an error.

  • (Fix) The area adjacency check no longer fails to account for containment or equivalency.

  • (Fix) The area adjacency check no longer sometimes fails to work correctly for areas with multiple branches.

  • (Fix) The area containment check no longer sometimes fails to work correctly for areas with multiple branches.

  • The Rnd query function has been reworked to significantly increase entropy.

  • (Fix) Attempting to compute a drive-time zone via a script using centers and roads taken from different drawings no longer sometimes crashes.

  • (Fix) The ScaleXxx query functions no longer return NULL values for trivial scales (if a scaled object equals the original object).

  • (Fix) Resizing an image or surface no longer shifts pixel values to left and top.

  • (Fix) Attempting to access the Center or Box property of a GeomSet object no longer sometimes crashes.

  • (Fix) Reading the Box property of a Map object no longer fails in case a map does not have any drawing or theme layers.

  • (Fix) Rendering compressed images (imported or linked) at high zooms no longer produces blurry, shifted and incomplete results.

  • The GPGPU readout in the Help - About dialog indicates the presence of Fermi devices.

The update is available for Manifold 8 editions and Manifold 8 x64 editions.
