Patches Already? Bah!

Believe me, I’m glad they are out, but why did this not make the RTM? I guess they needed to ship by the end of May, but I hate having to apply patches to software withing a week of it being released.

ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Map Document Performance Patch

ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Maplex for ArcGIS Formatting Tag Label Placement Patch

Network Analyst 9.1 Network Dataset Patch

Again, I’ll say that there needs to be an RSS feed to keep on top of these patches as they don’t show up on the “default” ESRI support homepage

ArcGIS 9.1 Legend Properties

A nice new change is the ability to changes the text symbols for all legend items at once. Before you had to apply them to each layer in the legend as well as the legend title. Now all you have to do is set the text color and font, then hit apply. I spent hours two weeks ago messing with these settings on 9.0.x to match the documents type font and colors. A very nice improvement if you ask me.
