uDig 1.4.0 on Osgeo4W + BeeGIS and the Nettools (and java 7) + 32/64bit

I have been made aware of the fact that java is outdated on Osgeo4W and that I am the maintainer. So I checked into it and noticed that I never upgraded uDig to 1.4.0 (and of which I know I am the maintainer).

Also I was told that the Nettools didn't work very well and even BeeGIS!!!

So I took the time to do a huge upgrade of everything and and very important: also added the 64 bit versions for Osgeo4W. This is almost mandatory for those that do raster data processing with uDig.

So pick your software: 32bit installer or 64bit installer.

Enjoy!!! :-)

Geopaparazzi 3 retirement

Since Geopaparazzi 4 is getting near to a first release and a lot changed in the database and project formats, we think it is important to have a Geopaparazzi 3 version still out in the market for those who still need it.

Even if Geopaparazzi 4 will have a ton of new features and will be the maintained version, at least two reasons come to my mind for using Geopaparazzi 3:

  1. if you were using it with the geopap-browser, since the project structure of version 4 is no longer compatible with it
  2. if you are using it to work on OpenStreetMap POI insertion. At the moment the OSM tags part is broken in version 4.

We would love to do more, but resources are not available to maintain two versions of geopaparazzi.

So right now we fixed the last bugs reported for version 3 and created a new application named geopaparazzi3, which you can find here in the google play. (it might still take a few hours to be visible though)

This will most probably be the last bugfix release for Geopaparazzi 3.

On the bright side this definitely opens up the doors for Geopaparazzi 4, which will soon be out in the wild.
