Release Notes

This is the first installer since we moved to using the pre-build GDAL binaries from
We've also started over with a fresh project for InnoSetup.
So this installer is mostly to test if the install process is working as expected. It does include all files and a small test application which you can run and drop files (shapefile, grid, image) on.

Be aware that you can only have 1 mapwingis.ocx on each computer so don't install this on your production environment. But please test it with your current application since we want to know if we've broken anything. We tried to be as backwards compatible as possible ;)

Reviews for this release

Installed fine, both over the top of 4.8.8 and when nothing installed before. Had some issues with extents, did not pan to set extents. Same code working ok in 4.8.8, see that there are some new methods around this, but havbe not tried them yet. some issues with projections, but need to look into this more, as was not in existing code base. Over all, very impressed with 4.9.X, even at this stage. Many thanks

Caused problems when using other activeX controls on same form; particularly other geospatial controls. 4.9 is fine, but 4.9.1 had issues. Perhaps it's a 32 bit vs 64 bit version issue?
