[fdo-internals] RE: Create a branch for GDAL 1.9 upgrade

Hi list, 

I am making good progress on the GDAL 1.9 upgrade.  Windows/VC10 is getting close to complete.  I haven't started Linux yet.  So far, no changes to .cpp/.h files - just changes to various "build files".

The unit tests for the GDAL provider are executing cleanly on 32 and 64 bit.  I still need to do some minor fixups for the WMS and WFS providers and some functional validation of the new GDAL Provider with MapGuide.

Since we are releasing FDO 3.7 using VC10, do we still need to maintain the VC9 (2008) builds?

I know that there are folks who are successfully building and using
and Oracle GeoRaster support on Linux.  But to the best of my
knowledge this is being done
individual by individual rather than building sharable plugins.
Partly this is because of
the variety of Linux versions and partly it is an issue with licensing
constraints on
most of the above.
