Slimmer Indexes

For those devices which don't collapse hierarchical table of contents entries(Nook, iRex, probably others) you can now disable individual entries for airports so the table of contents will just show the airport name, then you can flip through to find the particular approach you want.

Make an approach plate bundle now...

No DR800SG EPUB Approach Plates Today

So, we now have an iRex DR800SG in-house. However as far as we can tell the EPUB handling of images in the current firmware is horrific. HTML looks fine, PNG looks fine, but put those 2 in an EPUB container and it all goes badly.

Forum posts seem to indicate that the new firmware(coming soon...) will fix this issue. So we've suspended development on the DR800SG specific formats for now.

On the other hand, PDF formatted with 'Maximum Crop' Looks fine, if a bit smaller than the EPUB will be due to the reformatting we do on the EPUB(which is the main reason we generate them, that and EPUB seems to render faster on most devices)

Glitches with new cycle

Sorry about some of the glitches with the 11 March cycle. Some of the code didn't handle airports with updated pages due to the change notice correctly. Should be fixed now.
