Already ready for Download gvSIG 1.9 RC1, the first Release Candidate release from the 1243 Build 313 of August.
The download took a while, because initially it was out of service gvsig.org, from where the builds are downloaded, then the version available when unzipping it and executing it appeared as a corrupt file. But finally here it is, for us to use, test and report problems.
At the moment I have not found strange messages, I am using it in the Acer Aspire One Netbook, and it seems not to kill so much memory, although Not a high-performance machine. I recognize the projects created previously and I hope to be testing their functionality in these days of leisure.
As for improvements, there are many, I will take some time to try, in the end we agree to all have a version that meets the needs and problems raised by the community.
The side panel of layer management is quite functional, but for now I have encountered an unjustifiable discomfort to the grouping of layers. One of the reasons for grouping is to make management more practical, the plus sign allows hiding the deployment of layers within the group.
-But every time you apply a simple change in the layer control panel like:
- Upload a new layer
- Change symbology for a layer
- Make a new grouping of layers
- Undo a layer group
- Placing a layer within a specific group
All groupings are displayed in an unfolded way, becoming fatiguing if you have several. I also can not find a reason why, I'm supposed to maintain the conformation of deployments.
To try it
The life of these tools is in the community, I recommend that you download it, play it, try it, do not use it for formal work, but participate in its validation because that depends on having greater satisfaction in the stable version.
