First of all we'd like to apologize for the delay in giving updates
about the future stable versions gvSIG 1.9 and gvSIG 2.0, specially
regarding their release dates.

Secondly, We'd like to explain why we're working on two development

One of our main objectives is that gvSIG is a modular, scalable, and
easy-to-mantain project, under the perspective of a stable rich client
covering many areas.

Since we detected some problems in the gvSIG 1.x core that were putting
this objective at risk, we decided to do a refactoring of the data
access library. This is the current gvSIG 2.x development line.

It was a difficult decision that meant a lot of work and many
complications -they were the reasons for the lack of news about the
releases dates- but we're pretty sure it was the right choice for
ensuring the desired future of gvSIG, which is, to become an extremly
useful tool for the comunity.

Having said this, the estimated dates of gvSIG 1.9 and gvSIG 2.0 RC
(Release Candidates) are:

gvSIG 1.9
Date: 27th July 2009.

gvSIG 2.0
Date: 15th September 2009.

The functionalities that these versions will have (apart from gvSIG
1.1.2 ones), are:


- Density point legend.
- Symbol editor.
- Graduated symbol legend.
- Proportional symbol legend.
- Quantity category legend.
- Symbology levels.

- Basic default symbols.
- Two differents measure systems for symbols and labels (in the paper /
in the world).


- Creation of individualized annotations.
- Overlaps labeling control.
- Priority position labeling.
- Range scale visualization of labeling.
- Orientation of labeling.
- Different location options for labeling.
- More kind of measure units for labeling.

-Selection by polyline
- Selection by circle
- Selection by buffer
- Select all


- Fast information tool (informs about a geometry when the mouse stays
on it)
- Multi-coordinates tool: allows to visualize the view coordinates
simultaneously in geographic and UTM coordinates, even for a different
Zone from the one selected for the current view.
- Advanced hyperlink:
- To link different actions to the same layer
- To link properly several actions within one view.
- To add raster or vector layers in one view.
- Link to PDF files
- Link to HTML files
- Add new hyperlink actions with the help of plug-ins


- Export of tables subsets to DBF and Excel format.
- Add geographical information to the layer (for instance, add the Area,
Perimeter, etc. fields to a table in a faster way).
- Import tables fields.
- Interactively transform points to lines or polygons, and lines to


- Print view using a template.
- Select the order for loading several layers (for example, it allows
specifying the loading of shapes on top of the the raster data by
- Automatic backup of the .GVP when the project is saved.
