About uDig 1.2 Series
The uDig 1.2 series highlights a lot really great ideas the developer community has been working on. We have migrated to a modern version of the GeoTools library - bringing in five years of new developments in standard support, and a host of new raster and vector formats. An exciting addition is the use of the ImageIO-ext project allowing the use of raster formats supported by GDAL.
New and capabilities of uDig 1.2 include:
This release is based on the new Eclipse 3.5.2 release fixing a "GTK" conflict with Unbuntu 9.10. With this in mind the Software Developers Kit and SDK Quickstart have been revised for Eclipse 3.5.2 and clarified in response recent uDig training courses. We are also pleased to report the successful integration of the "Babel" project translations.
