We’re listening! RaceCapture app 2.10.6 is all about important fixes, reported by you. By the time you read this you may already have it on your Android, Fire, or iOS device.

WiFi Connectivity fixes, especially for iOS

Looks like Apple iOS made a change that caused newer iOS devices to not connect to RaceCapture via WiFi. In the course of fixing this issue, we also improved the general stability of the data connection across USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth.

Improved performance on slower platforms

We’re using a new app framework that bumps overall app performance, especially for video and graphics rendering performance. We were pleasantly surprised to see this improvement! Always a great bonus to see when we upgrade.

Raspberry Pi Fixes

Did you have app problems on the Pi after setting full-screen mode – even though you were already full-screen, hoping to defy physics and get more than full-screen? Yes? Well, we fixed that too. Setting full-screen mode doesn’t magically make it more full-screen, but the app also doesn’t crash. 🙂

That ‘exitstatus’ error message on the Pi launch script was also fixed.

Linux package change and simplified launch

The Linux distribution is now delivered as a standard Debian package, so it can be easily installed on Ubuntu and similar distributions. You can now install it via the command:

sudo dpkg -i racecapture_linux_x86_64_<version>.deb

And then launch it as :


Many more improvements!
