To get started with uDig:

About uDig 1.4.0

The 1.4.0 release includes a number of the headline features.

New this release is the GeoScripe editor allowing users to work with GeoScript directly from the uDig application.

Next we have the addition of a Document view allowing files and web pages to be listed for the selected feature. This includes traditional "hotlink" functionality which can be used to mark specific attributes as containing a file reference, web link or action. It also includes the new idea of document attachments in a similar fashion to an email program. Thanks to Naz Chan and LISAsoft for this work.

Next up we have a full featured graticule map decoration (using the GeoTools gt-graph module) provided by Kenneth Gulbrandsoy. A long time member of the uDig community Kenneth has been promoted to committeer status. Congratulations and thanks for the exciting work Kenneth.

Behind the scenes Jody Garnett has been testing WMS 1.3.0 support which is now enabled by default. Thanks to LISAsoft for supporting this work.

For developers this release includes an SDK package for developers generated using maven and the tycho plugin. Thanks to Sam Guymer for sorting out how to include GeoTools source code. Thanks to Suraj Patil and Thomas Dolley for testing the SDK Quickstart and Custom Application instructions.

Finally the project has formally changed license and is now available under a dual EPL and BSD license.
