MapServer 6.0.0 upgrade package for MS4W 3.x
This will upgrade your MapServer installation to the version 6.0.0 release. Please read the
announcement and the
Migration Guide before continuing. PHP MapScript users should also consult the
PHP MapScript Migration Guide.
Note that the Oracle plugin will work with this upgrade, but the
SDE and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 plugins will not. A full MS4W base package will be released shortly
containing MapServer 6.0.0 and all plugins.
After installing ms4w-3.0, extract the 6.0.0 upgrade package
at the same root of your existing MS4W installation. You can verify that MapServer was upgraded
by executing 'mapserv -v' at the commandline (after executing /ms4w/setenv.bat).
MS4W Changes for the 6.0.0 Release
- Cairo is now used for PDF and SVG output
- giflib is added to the build process
