(This announcement has also been made from the NemaTalker RSS feed on the Sailsoft website)
We are working hard to complete a new NMEA simulator, NemaStudio. This is not a new version of NemaTalker as we had planned before, but a complete new product.
NemaStudio wil incorporate many suggestions we received from our customers, like flexible comport handling and multiple copies of an instrument. So in NemaStudio you can have a GPS allocated to COM10, a GPS allocated to COM17, a GPS and a sounder allocated to COM2 etc. All these will run simulaneously.
In principle the number of copies of an instrument will be unlimited, provided your PC can handle it.
NemaStudio will support AIS.
NemaStudio has been given a professional and flexible user interface (GUI), with docking and floating panels and context menus. I am sure you will like it.
Since we have decided to not release a new version of NemaTalker (originally planned for 3Q2008) but for a complete new product, dedicated to our professional customers we need a bit more time than that. Yet we are sure to be able to deliver NemaStudio in 1Q2009.
