One big issue for me is the impossibility to use PostgreSQL+Postgis as
database solution for geographic data.
The new Postgis provider does not work (it seems to be only for
windows, and not so stable).
The old OGR Provider, that works fine in 1.2 ... does not work in
2.0.1 and in 2.0.2.
Our build from source code doesn't work, windows binaries don't work,
livecd doesn't work either.
Clearly neither MGE2008.
A long standing bug is opened (#666)
but it is not receiving any feedback (maybe the bug number is unfortunate...)
Some mails to this mailing list and some questions on #mapguide and on
#fdo on IRC are still waiting for answers.
It appears that not so many Mapguide users are interested in
Postgresql+Postgis, even if, IMHO, is one of the best RDMS for
We've seen that Mapguide 2.x has a lot of improvement over 1.2. But,
as a matter of fact, does not support Postgresql+postgis. So we're
stuck with old 1.2 until this problem is solved.
