Via 1.8.2 now available

I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of Via 1.8.2. Similar to the last release, the latest version comes a number of new features despite its minor version number bump.

New functionality in Via 1.8.2

  • Support for time-dependent custom attributes. Custom attributes, e.g. link attributes, now support time-dependent values.
  • Support for households. MATSim’s households.xml can now be loaded and visualized, and household attributes are provided to persons.
  • Show agent and vehicle attributes when querying them.

Improved functionality

  • “Go To Time” and “Set Speed” now preselects existing time/speed also on Windows
  • Aggregating Transit Vehicles’ passenger counts on links is much, much faster now
  • Show progress when aggregating large point sets in Aggregator and OD Aggregator
  • Improve performance of aggregation of points to Shapes by 30-40%
  • Improve visual appearance of gradients-chooser on Windows
  • XyLayer provides legend entries for lines and areas

Bug Fixes

There were also a number of bug fixes, among them:

  • Via does not save preferences on Windows
  • Custom attributes for links or nodes are not saved in via-files
  • Parsing of very large times formatted as HH:MM:SS (e.g. in plans files) fails
  • Wrong time extent when using vehicles or agents layer together with other layers, e.g. Xy layer.
  • Cannot add datasets using Ctrl+D
  • Loading via-files containing WebMap Layers restores all settings correctly
