New PTV Mapserver 5.14.0.10

The new release of PTV Mapserver 5.14.0.10 is now available for download in the Customer Area . This release contains following improvements:

  • Routing bug fix: Setting the speed profile of IVehicle::put_SpeedProfile() with a maxSpeed parameter which is not the highest speed compared to all the other speed parameters, resulted in internal interpolated speeds with too low values. This issue is corrected and corresponds to the results obtained by PTV xRoute with the same settings.
  • InstKit Setup bug fix: Under unclarified circumstances the base DLLs of Mapserver did not install. Via script these DLLs are set explicitly for installation now.
