gvSIG 1.9 Released

Just ahead of the gvSIG conference in Valencia, version 1.9 has been released. gvSIG is an open-source desktop GIS developed in Java. The new features in 1.9 are summarized here.

Some of the new features, including SLD import/export, are pretty interesting. gvSIG seems to be flourishing a bit under the wing of OSGEO. It’s a tool that I have gone back to periodically over the years, and I’ll probably take a deeper dive this time given some of the new features. I suggest giving gvSIG a go if you haven’t tried it.

UPDATE: The gvSIG download site seems to be having some serious bandwidth issues.
