The Mapbender Project is happy to announce the new release 2.4.3
with some minor changes and all bug fixes since the last version.
Change in Release
More importantly this is the first release that comes in a regular time
cycle and not after a certain set of features have been added. This change
in policy has been discussed at length on the Mapbender mailing list and on IRC. It
reflects a further maturation of the software and aims at making regular
updates to the newest version a lesser issue for users and portal
operators. The next release with major changes is due in December 2007,
the challenge being whether the Project will keep up with the goal of
regular release cycles.
Full Adoption of Trac
After more than a half year of testing, discussion and trial phase all
enhancements and bug
fixes are now managed via the OSGeo operated Trac instance. Trac is
now also used to manage road map and further development.
Keep it Human(e and)
The human readable version continues to be available
through the Wiki as a MediaWiki template page that ties into the full Version History of Mapbender.
Online Training Course
In time for FOSS4G 2007 a full fledged Online Training Course
(Mapbender 101) is made available through OSGeo’s Education infrastructure
Moodle (currently still on the OSGeo Test Server). It received its baptism of fire
during the FOSS4G
