zigGIS Hotfix Available

Abe announced the availability of hotfix 3 for zigGIS 2.0.5. From the announcement:

Hotfix 3 fixes an issue that prevented point layers from being
editable; it also includes all prior hotfixes. The hotfix is a free
upgrade and is highly recommended for all users. Please go to
http://pub.obtusesoft.com > My Order. After logging in you’ll see a
link to the patch.

Abe is working hard on version 3.0 but obviously is continuing to support 2.x as well. Improvements include a new provider model which will better enable support for other data sources. A roadmap should be available soon.

    Hi Bill,
    I compiled zigGIS from source at http://svn.obtusesoft.com/core/trunk/ by Microsoft Visual Studio Express C# 2008.
    Doing some test with the zigGIS extension I noticed some bad things:

    – zigGIS seems not capable of displaying 3d features in ArcMap 9.3.1 sp1

    – zigGIS seems very very slow handling postgresql/postgis layers with a lot of records:
    a layer in postgresgl/postgis with about 87000 records takes about 3/4 seconds to display in QGIS and about 30 seconds in ArcMap by Data Interoperability Extension, but it takes about 5 minutes to dipsplay in ArcMap by zigGIS extension;
    the same layer stored in a File GeoDatabase take about 3/4 second to display in ArcMap.

    Any suggestions?

    Andrea

  • I have forwarded your comment on to Abe and you should hear from him on Monday. In the future, such inquiries are probably best directed to the zigGIS Google group.

    Best,
    Bill
