Announcing: MapGuide Maestro 4.0 beta 1

I'm happy to announce the first beta release of MapGuide Maestro 4.0

This first beta contains 2 new groundbreaking features, which have already been covered previously:
The multi-site feature majorly affects most workflows in Maestro and as a result of the yet-to-be-stabilized nature of this new feature, I will only recommend you download this release for testing and feedback purposes only

You may also notice a significant increase in the windows installer size (84MB). This is due to the inclusion of the full set of CS-Map coordinate system dictionary files that is required by the new local connection mode feature. I wish CS-Map stored its thousands of coordinate systems in a more space-efficient manner! Anyway, I am pondering whether to offer the new local connection feature as a separate download or keep it bundled it with the NSIS installer as I have done for this beta release. Let me know what you think.

This beta can reside side-by-side with older versions. The new local connection mode also shouldn't conflict or clash with any existing MapGuide Open Source or AIMS installations

Hey Jacky!
I`m having trouble,
loading a package into my local connection.
The package was made using the mapguide server web-tool, as well as with maestro itself.
i am receiving the following error:

any idea, what went bad?
cheers, Chris.

How big is this package?

Chris said...

it`s 13MB in size. too big?
i could send it to you via googlemail if you want.
should be a pretty good "test-package" because it consists of several types of resources (shp,dwg,sdf,dwf etc.)
cheers, chris.
