Hello everyone,

MS4W version 3.2.0 is now available at http://www.ms4w.com  This is a 
substantial release, so please see the very long list of updates to this 
popular product at: http://ms4w.com/HISTORY.html  You'll notice updates 
for PHP 5.6.30, MapServer 7.0.4, MapCache, and (literally) the entire 
stack of libraries.

Please note that your server must have this C++ Redistributable 
installed on it beforehand: (use the "x86" one 

MS4W is growing, and 2017 will see lots of action in terms of MS4W; it 
now has 63 working mapfiles and data, installs to over 1GB of space, 
with now over 6,000 downloads per month and over 1TB of transfers.  It 
includes plugins for Oracle, ECW, MSSQL, MapScripts (Java, Python, 
CSharp, PHP).  It comes with pre-configured packages for GeoMOOSE, 
Mapbender, pmapper, OpenLayers (with a custom local WMS service working 
in the OpenLayers examples) and several MapServer viewers.  And of 
course lots of changes are in progress for PHP 7 inside MS4W, which is 
working in MS4W Alpha versions (more details at 
http://mapserver.org/development/rfc/ms-rfc-117.html).  Phew lots!

Please don't be afraid to also provide feedback and requests through the 
MS4W tracker (so the comments and requests are not lost or forgotten): 

Thank you all for sharing your spatial information with MS4W.

And happy MapServing!
