Announcing: MapGuide Open Source 4.0 Preview 1

Time to get the first part of my plan in motion: Get a new release of MapGuide out there!

This 1st preview release of MapGuide Open Source 4.0 is the culmination of 2+ years (Wow! Time flies!) of trunk development since the release of MapGuide Open Source 3.1. Competing interest in other side projects like mapguide-react-layout undoubtedly contributing to the long stretch.

A cliff-notes summary of what's new in this release (along with the download links) can be found on the 4.0 Preview 1 release notes wiki page. This blog will showcase all the new features in an upcoming series of posts.

Only 64-bit windows binaries are available as of this post. Linux binaries will soon follow as I am still experimenting with a new packaging mechanism for the Linux builds.

And if the "Preview" designation does not give it away, this release represents a work-in-progress and is not indicative of what the 4.0 final release will look like. There is still plenty of work to be done and more preview releases to follow.
