An updated version of TarfficCamNZ has been submitted to the iPhone application store for approval. This new release adds new features and some bug fixes to stop potential application crashes.

  • Fixed potential memory leaks with image handling
  • Found and fixed an issue in iPhone OS 3.0 where some uninitialised fields would cause an Application crash when refreshing images (or starting the App). This may or may be not fixed as it seems to occur when restoring a 3.0 backup from an iPhone 3G to an iPhone 3GS. If you continue to have problems, you may been to delete the Application from the iPhone and let iTunes reinstall it when you sync.
  • New Feature: [you must have e-mail setup for this to work] Added to the Preferences screen the ability to e-mail an xml file of cameras to any e-mail address
  • New Feature: [you must have e-mail setup for this to work] The main screen now has an Action button (Top Left) – this will set up an email message for you containing the current traffic picture – add the destination e-mail address and tap send. The camera URL is included in the e-mail so that those receiving your message can refresh for themselves what you are looking at
  • Implemented a work around for an issue that could trigger an image receipt failure and success for the same image meaning the application would crash

Missile Control NZ for iPhone has been released. You can download it from iTunes via this link.

You will also need the USB Missile Launcher NZ Mac software, version 1.6 or later, and an actual missile launcher.

Have fun.

p.s. I do have a new version of the USB Missile Launcher NZ software (currently version 1.7). This release fixes compatibility issues with Snow Leopard and incorporates a number of other improvements. A causality of this upgrade is support for 10.4 has been removed. Below is a summary of the enhancements & fixes:

1.7.0 build 149

  • Preparation for 10.6 compatibility
  • Fixed some potential memory leaks within the AppleScript section of code
  • Fixed more memory leaks in the USB connection handling code
  • Combined kext USB drivers into one file and altered for 10.6 compatability, made associated program code changes to match
  • Minimum OS Mac OS 10.5
  • Fixed a redraw problem with the background graphic display after a button was pushed
  • Kext updated with missile launcher vendorID and ProductID from Chic technology (seen in France June 2009)
Regarding the note about a new USB Missile Launcher seen in France… I’ve got the USB Vendor ID and USB Product ID, and have made some assumptions about the launcher control codes. If you have one of these launcher and can do some testing, please contact me.
