SHPTRANS 1.1.4

SHPTRANS 1.1.4 is now available. This version supercedes 1.1c as the new current release.

This is a maintenance release; it contains minor bug fixes, compatibility features (ArcGIS 9 gridshift file detection), a few additional units of measurement (yards, US Survey Feet), and a new command line option for slower, more precise calculations for reverse projections.

More information is available in the file release notes.

SHPTRANS 1.1c released

As promised, SHPTRANS 1.1c is released. It has no technical changes compared to 1.1c-pre2, although the license has changed to make it unambiguously GPL-compatible.

SHPTRANS 1.1c prerelease 2

Prerelease 2 of SHPTRANS 1.1c is a bug-fix, for a bug that dates back to 1.1b. In 1.1b, the documentation stated that it supported arbitrary TM projections (e.g. TM with central meridian at -63.4), but it turns out this functionality didn't actually work. (Guess no one was using that, or I would have heard about it sooner.) Anyway, it works now. Thanks to Brian B. for the bug report. If there are any other bugs that anyone wants fixed in 1.1c, please report them to me now. Unless there are major problems, 1.1c will be released on the weekend of April 4.

shptrans updates

I've begun work on a few updates to shptrans. These will be published initially in the 'development' package, and will be moved into the stable 'shptrans' package when appropriate. One enhancement, just finished, is to support units other than meters (feet, miles, km, etc).

source code now published

All of the source code used in shptrans 1.1b prerelease is now published in the Files section. It is not yet checked into CVS, as I have not yet decided on the module (directory) layout.
