Mapserver 5.0.0 Released

Mapserver 5.0.0 Released

"Beyond browsing GIS data, MapServer allows you create "geographic image maps", that is, maps that can direct users to content"

MapServer Example (in final testing)

New features in Mapserver Version 5.0.0:

- MS RFC 19: Added Style and Label attribute binding

- MS RFC 21: Raster Colour Correction via colour lookup table

- MS RFC 27: Added label priority

- MS RFC 29: Added dynamic charting (pie and bar charts)

- MS RFC 31: New mechanism to load/set objects via URL using mapfile syntax

- MS RFC 32: Added support for map rendering using the AGG library for
better output quality

Long time issues resolved:

- MS RFC 17: Use dynamic allocation for symbols, layers, classes and styles
(got rid of the static limit on the number of instances of each in a map)

- MS RFC 24: Improved memory management and garbage collection for MapScript

- MS RFC 26: Terminology cleanup (layer transparency renamed to opacity,
scale becomes scaledenom, symbol style becomes symbol pattern)

- MS RFC 28: Enhanced the debug/logging mechanism to facilitate
troubleshooting and tuning applications. Added support for multiple
debug levels and more control on output location.
