QGIS 1.8

Today is a big day for GIS users. QGIS 1.8 is out and about. Check out the new features on their website.

A couple features that I like: * QGIS Browser which should be very familiar to those who’ve used ArcGIS Catalog.

  • DBManager which is now no longer a plugin. I’m a big users of it so this should be very nice.
  • New plugin repository! I’m always amazed at how many plugins there are available.
  • Microsoft SQL Server support.
  • Expression based labeling (YES!)
  • support for Zip/GZip layers

I’ve already downloaded mine from KyngChaos.
