GDAL 1.4.3 RC2

28 Oct 2007 | mloskot

This is very important update to the GDAL 1.4.3 Release Candidate 1 published yesterday. I screwed and generated GDAL 1.4.3 RC1 packages with sources from trunk, so users found it surprising when they encountered a bunch of new features and drivers. On the other hand, it was a pre-announcement of the GDAL 1.5.0 release :-P

Here is the official announcement sent on the gdal-dev list:

From - Sun Oct 28 18:50:31 2007 Date: Sun, 28 Oct 2007 18:50:26 +0100 From: Mateusz Loskot To: Subject: GDAL /OGR 1.4.3 Release Candidate 2


*** IMPORTANT *** I appologize for my mistake during preparation of gdal-1.4.3 RC1 and you got sources from ‘trunk’ instead of from ‘branches/1.4’. Following GDAL 1.4.3 RC 2 is dedicated to correct this issue. Special thanks to Joaquim Luis reporting the problem very fast.
