gvSIG 1.9 stable has arrived. Hooray!

clip_image002[1]This week has been released the stable version of gvSIG 1.9, from which we had the RC1 in August and the Alpha version in December 2008.

This version will possibly make history, because maturity is enough to promote it for municipal use, without being belittled by smallness made by ArcView 3x and not done by gvSIG 1.3.

They have faithfully fulfilled the promised improvements in the Alpha version, what has been marked in red is extra; it was not mentioned in that first.

Some of them seem not to be found, as it has been reported in the user list

SEXTANTE is neither automatically installed.

English (USA), Portuguese Brazilian, Turkish.

– Matrix.
– Scaling.
– New snapping.
– Cut polygon.
– AutoComplete.
– Join polygon.

– Exploit.
– Previous selection.

– New wizard for joining tables.

– Extension of geoprocessing tools that can work with layers lines besides with layers of polygons

– Add grid to a view within the Layout.
-Wizard for recovery layers whose path has changed (only SHP)
– Online help.
– Possibility for the user to hide toolbars.
– New Icons.
Extension management of CRS JCRS v.2 integrated.
– Improvements in reading the DWG 2004 format
– Improvements in the functioning and utility of the hyperlink.

– Distance Units independent from area units.
– Enter to Properties with double click.
It has been included in the Environmental Council of Castilla de Leon the following, although some have been suggested from the GPS on the user lists.
– Polyline selection.
– Circle selection.
– Selection by area of influence (buffer).
– Select all.

– Quick information tool (when the mouse remains quiet over a geometry, shows a tooltip with information of that geometry).
– Tool for displaying multi-coordinates (allows you to display the coordinates view simultaneously in geographic coordinates and UTM, even in a different time zone than the one selected for the court).
– Advanced hyperlink, intended to replace the current one and which allows:

  • Associate different actions with a single layer.
  • Correctly Association of many actions within a view (this doesn’t work well in the “classical” hyperlink); by default it include the following actions: display image, load raster layer in the view, load vector layer in the view, show PDF, show text or HTML.
  • Add new hyperlink actions by plugins.

– Export subsets of tables to Excel and DBF formats tools.

– Add geographical information to the layer (adding fields “Area”, “Perimeter”, etc. To a table with a couple of clicks).
– Import fields (import fields from one table to another, permanently).
– Transform points to lines or polygons, and lines to polygons, interactively.

– Print a view, using a template.
– Selecting the loading order of layers (you can specify that by default are loaded shapes above the raster, for example).
– Automatic Backup of the .GVP when the project is saved.


Now is half complicated to download it, because the web is half down three of every two days, aspect that seems to be the fault of another side.

If it is alive, you can download it from here

If not, this is another choice with JRE or without JRE and from FTP

Greetings, we’ll proof it next week.
