The gvSIG Association announces the publishing of the gvSIG 2.1 final version .
This version, that is the first one based on the new architecture oriented to users, has a lot of new features as you can see now.
Besides the new functionalities and the correction of a great number of errors that have been detected thanks to the community collaboration, we want to highlight the availability of a distribution for Linux 64 bits and portable versions for Windows as well as for Linux.
Together with the gvSIG 2.1 releasing we publish the new gvSIG website, that includes the old gvSIG Association website as well as the project one, and at the same time a knowledge portal about the gvSIG technology. Besides this new website will be to make the new products of the gvSIG catalog visible, like gvSIG Roads or gvNIX.
We want to take advantage of this announcement to thank all the people that have collaborated in making this new version reality, and all the entities that have counted on the gvSIG Association services to solve their needs on geomatics, helping to guarantee the sustainability of the project at this way.
