desktop*StrePla
Version 7.0 Build 1666

  • Better processing speed of the animation of IGC files with high sampling rate (e.g. one second).

Many modern loggers have high sampling rates. Therefore, the animation algorithms in desktop*StrePla had to be changed in order not to become too slow with the recently high data rates.

ICAO maps 2019 and current databases

- More data security with StrePla7

Recently we released desktop*StrePla version 7.

The demands on data security are getting bigger and bigger. Therefore the main change in desktop*StrePla 7 was a secure communication with our StrePla server.
For example, if new airspaces or airfield data are updated from our server, this should be done with a secure connection nowadays.

Unfortunately, the reverse conclusion is that all versions prior to version 7 will soon no longer be able to download automatically. Of course desktop*StrePla will still work, but simply download current data (airspace, airport data, maps etc.) via the data management won't work anymore.

Therefore it might be a good idea to order the update now if you haven't updated to version 7 yet. It costs only EUR 98,00 incl. VAT. You can order it here

- ICAO 2019 maps are now available in scanned format

The new ICAO maps can now be ordered for use in desktop*StrePla via our web order form
can be ordered.

There is the German ICAO map only as a whole for Germany. Both the Classic Version and the Glider Edition still cost EUR 95,-- incl. VAT plus shipping costs.

The ICAO charts for Austria, Switzerland and France will also be available in the next days and can be ordered now.

- Actual German, Swiss and Austrian Airspace

Using the integrated data management, the new, current airspace of Germany, Switzerland and Austria can be downloaded.

- New airfield frequencies

The airport database can also be updated with the new frequencies via the integrated data management.


- scoring*StrePla: Integration of the new competition regulations

desktop*StrePla
Version 7.0 Build 1659

  • A small bugfix is necessary
    The previous version desktop*StrePla 7.0 has after the Windows 10 update by Microsoft a problem with the airspace update, etc. This is resolved with the Build 1659 version.

    We strongly advise against using versions older than version 7.

As always the update is free for customers who have bought the software or done a paid update within the last year.

All other customers can update their licence for 98.00 Euros. You can read our one year's update warranty here.

desktop*StrePla
Version 7.0 Build 1657

  • Changeover to secure communication
    With version 7 has been switched to secure, encrypted connection between your desktop*StrePla and our server. The old versions can not guarantee that you download malware.
    We strongly advise against using versions older than version 7.
  • Distance Circles
    Modern loggers record the tracks in relatively short time intervals (one second or four seconds). Based on this short time sequence of the position data, desktop*StrePla can calculate the wind from the offset. With this wind, the calculation of the range and the graphical representation are then carried out. This functionality has been optimized in version 7.
  • Barogram - Distance made good
    This barogram representation is completely new. The height is displayed over the distance covered. When you joining "around the airfield" this representation makes no sense. The experienced pilot, however, gives this diagram valuable information. This functionality has been optimized in version 7.
  • Small improvements
    Some minor bugs and improvements have been entered.

As always the update is free for customers who have bought the software or done a paid update within the last year.

All other customers can update their licence for 98.00 Euros. You can read our one year's update warranty here.

desktop*StrePla
Version 6.5 Build 1629

  • Turn point and airports database separately
    Since version 6.5 of desktop*StrePla there is a separation between turning points and airports. This makes the creation of turn-point catalogs for modern computer systems easier and allows the StrePla team to maintain the airport data and keep it up-to-date.
