Xastir-1.5.0 (stable) has been released. This version incorporates enhancements and bug-fixes which have accumulated in the 1.4.x development releases. Xastir is an open-source mapping and amateur radio APRS client which runs on a variety of platforms, supporting 124 map formats and seven languages.
Xastir can be used as a moving map program, as a tool for search and rescue operations, or as an amateur radio APRS tracking application. It can track tens of thousands of moving objects at a time. It is capable of tiling maps side-by-side or overlaying vector maps on top of other vector and/or raster maps to create custom map stack-ups. It enables use of internet-based mapping servers, local map data, or both at the same time.
