Apparently this is good timing for a release; a recent uDig GIS: A First Look article was published in the Linux Journal. If you are new to uDig (in addition to the article above) please consider the following resources:
This has been a really interesting ride leading up to uDig 1.1.0. The project has migrated from a core developer team located in Victoria to a diverse set of developers from all the corners of the earth.
Much of this transition has been under the leadership and support of Jesse Eichar. I would like to personally thank Jesse for supporting development teams - often on his own time as a volunteer. I am especially pleased that his hard work supporting others has been echoed back on the email list in terms of testing, translations and feedback.
A friendly reminder for the GeoServer project; it appears they have a ways to go before they catch up to our Release Candidate record.
