gvSIG 1.12: new call for contributors

Hi I reproduce here this important mail from the gvSIG Team on mailing lists, as it’s important for the release of next gvSIG Desktop 1.12 version. Best, Jorge.

Dear gvSIG users and developers,

As most of you know we made a call for contributions for gvSIG 1.12 last June. September 21st was the deadline to send bugfixes and fortunately we got lots of them. Now it’s time to review and integrate them but the problem is that all the team is now focused on the development of gvSIG 2.0 since it is our most priority task at the moment.

Although we think that gvSIG 1.12 is very interesting for our users and developers since it will come with quite a few bugfixes and improvements, we really think that we can’t afford to delay the release of gvSIG 2.0 anymore.

That’s why we make a new call for contributors today. These are the main tasks we would need you to do:

  • Review the received patches
  • Build the binaries
  • Test the binaries

Please read these documents to find more info about the tasks:

In case you are willing to help us to release gvSIG 1.12 just reply this email and tell us what tasks are you interested in and a coordinator will contact you.

Thanks in advance
The gvSIG team.

  1. Dear,

    We have a question.
    is it possible to use gvSIG on a pencomputer en combine it with a GPS ( Leica) receiver outsite.
    Can the map move at the location of the GPS?
    Can we do redlining by using our GPS receiver?
