Yes, it's new. That's also the reason I started posting some short
articles on my blog. I hope I'll continue this introductory so other
programmers will be able to learn FDO & start working with it faster.

I believe it's a great idea to start publishing in a printed magazine
articles and tutorials similar to those presented in the ArcUser
Magazine, but about Open Source software (applications, frameworks,
libraries, etc.).

GDAL, PROJ.4, GEOS, ...all these great libraries and more
could be covered there.

Thanks, I'll check it.

I agree with you.

Yes, I believe this idea is very interesting.
If you will have more details, I'm interested.
