Board » General Discussion » WANTED: Testers new client

Hello all,

First let me bring you the good news that a SOLer has stepped up a while ago and started work on a new HTML5 client. We hope this client will ultimately replace the current Flash client, as Flash support gets removed from browsers over the next years.

This new HTML5 client is now ready for some testing. We would like to select a handful of people that want to (1) test the new client and (2) be a guide to the new client once everyone else starts using it.

As someone in this group
(1) you will communicate with each other about their findings and maintain a list of bugs and feedback together, and
(2) Once we believe the most important issues are all resolved, we will open the new client to the public and we would like you to answer questions in chat/forum when you are online and generally help people get started. If new problems are discovered, you can add them to the list.

For (1) it would be nice if some of the people in the group have some affection/knowledge of web technologies or software testing.

For (2) it would be nice if you are an active SOLer that is available in chat relatively frequently. It would be good to have some people from the non-English communities, like for example French, Italian and Spanish. But communication within the group and with us will be in English. Also SOLers from the Americas and Australasia are most welcome to join in order to have our "guides" spread over all time zones.

If you are interested to be part of this group of "early adopters", please send an e-mail to my @sailonline.org address: huib@
And if you know of people that may be interested, but sure to point them to this post.
I'm in... of course!!
ME!
I am user testing the new client. I would like the option to not have the night time effect, to have a sound when the new weather arrives and to be able to use the ruler to produce a Great Circle as we could with the old client. Otherwise it seems to work just fine.

When I went to set a start time on Silverrudder, as my router will not take the start, the clock was light years away from the right year and month. Presumably so that the programmers are not disturbed?
Helloooo!
I'm interested in testing the new client.
A few years ago I wrote this document to describe the development of the new client ... I hope there are useful suggestions.
