Migration to Openlayers= for rendering:
This release completes the migration to OpenLayers fo= r rendering MapPane.
All tools are now integrated with Openlayers.
Deprecating old files:
There will be some backward compatability i= ssues because we have
deprecated MapPane and MapPane2 (replaced by Ma= pPaneOL) and
GMLRendererWZ replaced by GMLRendererOL. Some less used = widgets have
also been deprecated.
Old documentation which has = been moved to the wiki has been depreated.
Deprecated files have been= moved into the mapbuilder/archieve (in the
The fitness test framework has been replaced by the simpl= er and more
powerful selerium framework. Some tests have already been= written, but
more are required.
We consider the code to be quite stable, but have not r= un it through
extensive testing yet, and so we are still calling the = code "alpha".
Vector rendering using SVG/VML:
SVG and VML rendering is available= for recent browsers using MapPaneOL and GmlRendererOL. This rendering is m= uch faster than the previous WZGraphics library.
Integration with OpenLayers:
The MapPaneOL and GmlRendererOL widge= ts use OpenLayers for rendering. This means we can easilly tap into OpenLay= er's support for numerous map providers.
Eg: Tiled WMS, Google Maps, = Yahoo Maps, MSN Maps, WFS, GML, etc.
Mapbuilder is now bundled up into one file and com= pressed into a half its original size.
Mapbuilder previously stored its LayerList in a Web M= ap Context (WMC) document. A WMC describes a list of WMS layers. The latest= Mapbuilder supports the
OGC's draft OWS Context specification which = extends the WMC to include: WFS layers, GeoRSS layers, GML Layers.
The OWS Context is rendered by the new MapPaneOL widget.=20
We now have a Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) Editor exa= mple. A SLD describes whether you map features should be rendered as red fa= t lines or blue thin
lines and you can apply styles to maps.
We have some GeoRSS examples which include rendering vecto= r layers SVG/VML.
