I'm happy to announce Highway Radar v2.5.1. This is a relatively minor update, so I'm planning to keep it in beta mode just for a couple of days and then release it publicly.
Here are the primary changes
- Added a button hiding confirm/not there prompt without sending any response
- Added an option to configure map labels opacity
- Removed sound configuration for radar bands if no detector is connected
- Added donation section in settings
- Supported SABRE protocol v1.1
- Updated donations options
I recently noticed that whenever someone donates via PayPal, the system may reveal my real identity. What is worse is that I can't turn it off.
With this in mind, I've set up three different ways to donate – Liberapay, Patreon, and Ko-fi. Detailed information is available on https://highwayradar.com/donate/.
If you have an old PayPal link saved somewhere, you may still use it, but please don't share it. If you're Int+ and would like to donate, please shoot me a PM; I'll give you a way to support the development without any payment processing fees.
- Introduced SABRE v1.1
This is an update for the original SABRE protocol, which supports some new features, and has more potential to integrate with various platforms. Technical description is still at https://sabre.app/. This is a fully backward-compatible change, so end-users don't need to worry about it. This will matter for you only if you're developing your own app supporting SABRE (cc @johnboy00, @schuster).
- Old versions deprecation
I had to deprecate aircraft alerts in all versions of Highway Radar before v2.4.3. The reason for this is that these versions put an unreasonably high load on ADSBx servers.
This is a beta release, so please expect some bugs or issues may happen. Please report them here or using the bug report feature (triple tap on the speed or "Submit bug report" using the voice control).
Have fun! And special thanks to those 232 people who switched to the beta update channel!
