Changes in the beta code?

Hi, I'm sorry to hear of the authors programming burnout - we work in a tough industry for sure.

I downloaded the beta of GPS.NET 3.0 towards the end of June and have been using it as a core element of a large project I am working on. However, the beta license key has now expired and I am investigating the open source version you have posted to CodePlex - but there seems to be some rather large differences. For example, the following lines of code no longer work:

this.speedometer1.AnalogFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 10F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);
this.speedometer1.DigitalFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 8F);
this.speedometer1.IsCheckingTickIntersections = false;

this.satelliteViewer1.CardinalFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 10F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);

this.compass1.CardinalFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 10F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);
this.compass1.DegreeFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 7F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);

this.altimeter1.AnalogFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 10F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);
this.altimeter1.DigitalFont = new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 8F);
this.altimeter1.DigitalReadoutOrientation = GeoFramework.Gps.Controls.AltimeterDigitalReadoutOrientation.Above;
this.altimeter1.IsCheckingTickIntersections = false;


Am I doing something wrong here? If so, I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction with the new 3.0 beta version.

Thanks and regards,

Nobody liked the 3.0 controls, so they were rolled back to 2.0.  The properties are all different as a result, but the controls look and perform more smoothly.  It would be best to remove and re-add controls.
