gvSIG Community Edition TECHNOLOGY PREVIEW available for testing

An early preview of the upcoming gvSIG Community Edition 1.0 is available for download here.
It is not intended for use in a production environment. We expect that there are still missing features in this release. In particular, the following features are NOT YET included:
  • updated 32/64 bit binaries (raster drivers)
  • GRASS and SAGA GIS binaries (via SEXTANTE)
  • third-party extensions (e.g. OpenCAD, NavTable)
  • the new extensions manager tool
We have included a SEXTANTE snapshot from 08/28/2011. Functionalities of GRASS GIS and SAGA can be added to the SEXTANTE Toolbox following the instructions of this document. You will see all the available raster- and vector tools from SEXTANTE, SAGA, GRASS GIS and gvSIG CE which all together are currently 760 algorithms.
A continuously updated release announcement, detailing the progress on new features and bug fixes can be found here.
This is a zero-install distribution. Simply unpack it somewhere on your harddisk and start it:
  • Linux: start bin/
  • Windows: start bin/gvSIG.bat
  • Mac OS X: double-click the App folder
Please report your findings to our users mailing list.
