FDO Toolbox v0.3.4

A new release of FDO Toolbox is available. Changes which are mostly bug fixes and productivity enhancements, include:
  • Added a preferences dictionary. This gets saved to/loaded from Preferences.xml at application startup and shutdown. Currently two preferences are exposed: pref_str_working_directory and pref_bool_timestamp_console
  • Schema Management: Can now save selected schema to either an XML file or to a new SDF file
  • Geometric Property Dialog: FdoGeometryType is used instead of FdoGeometricType, allowing for more specific geometry types
  • You can now optionally connect to any SHP/SDF files created.
  • You can now optionally name any SDF/SHP connection created.
  • Class editing is activated again. Just be aware that removing properties won't work (the removal won't be applied)
  • Spatial Context Dialog: You can choose to set extents by computing it from a list of chosen feature classes.
  • Tabs will now close if their bound connection is closed.
  • Tabs will now have their title text renamed if their bound connection is renamed.
  • You can show the Object Explorer or Application Console if you accidentally close either one.

Special thanks to Jason Birch and Kenneth Skovhede for suggestions (some of which made it into this release)

Edit: Most of the save functionality is broken and will be fixed in the next release
