Additionally, I am not able to connect with https://www.skypixels.com/HVB_Repository/ nor with http://www.skypixels.com/HVB_Repository/ .

I figured this one out... www.skypixels.com is no longer valid.... www.skypixels.at should be used

This is a confirmed bug, which I have just fixed. I am preparing an update to the core application that solves this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is it required to remove version 1.8.6 on a Linux based system prior to installing 1.8.7?

Hi Tom,

The UNIX/Linux installer program removes a previous version automatically by default. Just answer 'yes' to the installer.

Hi Blinky,


I see this with each major update. Simply unpin the old icon and re-pin the icon to the task bar from the new version.

Thanks so much for all your hard work with this major release.  I'm looking forward to the upcoming new mosaic tool.

PixInsight 1.8.7 for Windows is compatible with Windows 10 exclusively. Windows 8.1, Windows 7 and older versions are not supported. The application may run well on Windows 7, but there is no guarantee.

Thank you for the update, Juan. What aspects of this release are only compatible with Windows 10?

Hello Juan,

I have noticed two issues with the "New Workspace Selectors".

I am using Win10 with multiple screens (AMD GPU, no Intel).
1. Whenever PI is not on the primary screen the workspace previews are empty. When PI is on primary screen it works fine.
please see attached screenshots.
2. the previews are always displayed on main screen, but not on the screen PI is running on

BTW: Also noticed when minimizing process icons, they are minimized more or less randomly to any screen. This ends up "searching" the icon every where.

Thank you in advance!

Cheers
Ruediger

Is there a way to keep installed scripts in place when we update to a new version ? Upto now, I had to re-install all the scripts from scratch. Maybe I'm doing something wrong ?

Hello Juan,

Congrats on the new release! Appreciate you and the teams hard work to make PI a fabulous platform and to continue to improve it for all of us!

I am running 1.8.7 on a Mac pro. Sorry, don't have the specifics of the OS as I am not in front of that system right now. It's definitely running the latest version though for sure.

I can say I've noticed a slight lag in some things. For instance, dragging an instance icon, or even blue triangle to an image exhibits a slight delay prior to operation kicking in and seeing spinning color wheel. This was not exhibited in 1.8.6.xxx for me.

Another, worse item I am experiencing is the RealTimePreview. I am noticing a rendering delay of at least 30 seconds, and sometimes into minutes in the preview window when I initially launch it and make parameter changes in the associated tool. I've rebooted, and restarted PI 1.8.7 but the problem persists.

I initially installed 1.8.7 when released and have seen 1 update and have applied that as well.

I've reverted to 1.8.6 and the issue is not present.
-Brad
