Geopaparazzi 5.5.0 is out

I know this should have been about Hortonmachine tools for gvSIG, but as it happens, the job came in between and we are now releasing Geopaparazzi 5.5.0.

Two lines are mandatory, since there are a few new features. They are very few actually, since this should have been only a bugfix release.

Therefore many bugs have been fixed. Please continue to send them in via the ACRA integration.

Major features:

  1. integration of the Geoss2Go project to create profiles in geopaparazzi. I wrote a complete description of the tool in this post. Now this is all available through the "Profiles" entry in the dashboard menu.
  2. use of vector icons for dashboard and map tools, so that they adapt to style changes. Important for customized versions. This makes a great user experience, since these icons adapt very well to different resolutions and devices. As a drawback, all the icons had to be replaced and re-done. The once you will find most different are for sure those of the editing tools. Below a few screenshots:
