Release Notes

Announcement Thuban 1.2.2 Much of the work was about updating Thuban with the latest library dependencies (gdal >= 1.5, sqlite3, owslib, wxpython 2.8). Of course a number of defects have been fixed. The Thuban 1.2.x series stabilises slowly and the next release will fix most of the unicode problems by updating to pyshapelib 0.4. But thanks to our users, all reports help us to iron out the problems! Thanks to all you have send us feedback! Didrik Pinte Notable issues: - Extension OGR: - Two tests fail (probably because of an ogr/shapelib problem.) The failure looks harmless. As the ogr layer support is beta it did not block the release. - Is slower than native Shapefile support. - Classification might not work. - Extension profiling: makes use of a non-free "profile" module which therefore will not be available on all python installations. Consequently it is also not enabled by default. - Because we enabled translations for the Extensions only recently, some translations will be outdated more then usual.
