Golden Cheetah 1.2.0rc1

Monday, September 7th, 2009

gc-colorGolden Cheetah is about to release a new version. There have been extensive updates…some great, unique new features for analyzing cycling power training data. The full feature list will be announced with the official release. In brief:

  • direct SRM download
  • colorized power zones in plots
  • altitude (from supported files)
  • WKO file support (including bulk import)
  • Critical Power (CP60) computation from aggregate CP data.
  • weekly plot of time/distance and BikeScore/Intensity
  • calendar view of workouts

There has also been significant work done under the hood in preparation for a pretty big announcement coming in the next few weeks. Exciting times.

Mac release candidate is available here. Linux and windows versions will be announced on the Golden Cheetah mailing list.

For posterity, I’ve upgraded my dev system to OS 10.6, Snow Leopard, and had to rebuild Qt and QWT. Since we want Golden Cheetah to continue to support PPC/Intel and 10.4+, here is the configure command I needed to use for building Qt 4.5.2.

./configure -static -prefix /usr/local/Qt4.5.2 -make libs -opensource -qt-sql-sqlite -LD="gcc -mmacosx-version-min=10.4" -confirm-license -universal -sdk /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk

Summer time: BeachBall

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

beachball_submitThe BeachBall app has been submitted to the iPhone App Store. I’m pretty sure that I’ve crossed all the t’s and dotted the i’s throughout the application and am holding out hope for a smooth process. If all goes well it will be a great surprise just before the next semester kicks off.

Thanks to everyone who has been beta testing the (codename) Pinwheel app. I’ll be sure to give you all a copy of the final app when (if?) it’s approved.

In the meantime there are several other projects which need my attention. I’m committed to getting the in-progress work finished before moving on to new stuff…which is a strong motivator since I have a few things I’m really excited about working on. Onward…!

Golden Cheetah 1.0.277 released!

Friday, January 9th, 2009

gc_10277We finally got a new version of Golden Cheetah out the door….it’s been only like, almost a year. Whew! Pressure is off.

I had been making personal builds since the summer to give out to folks who wanted to take advantage off several new features introduced since the march build. Sean gave Justin and I write access to the svn code this past December and we’ve been playing catch up on a backlog of patches, and i’ve been remembering c++ and Qt.

Several new features have been added in this release: Critical Power calculator, find best intervals utility, Pedal Force / Pedal Velocity chart, iBike and Ergomo CSV import, GUI power zones creator, separate vertical axes for Power / HR / Cadence and Speed in the Ride plot, sorting rides with the most recent at the top of the list, and many bug fixes courtesy of JT Conklin. This version is also using FTDI D2xx drivers rather than VCP.

We’ve also switched to a numbered versioning system which will serve to better indicate which svn revision the releases were built from and perhaps will mask our slow release cycle. :)

The new release is available on the Golden Cheetah download page.
