Hi all: Perhaps you've already noticed the change, but regardless, the MapServer PSC is pleased to
announce the migration of the MapServer website to a new domain and platform. This move completes
the MapServer migration of services to OSGeo.

It also marks the end of an era. For years the MapServer project has been hosted by the University
of Minnesota (UMN) and this move completes the MapServer migration of services to OSGeo. I am 
grateful for the long-term support of Dr. Tom Burk and his staff, especially Trent Erikson. Without 
their efforts the project would not be where it is today. Infrastructure is a thankless job!

The work to migrate the website was funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and principally 
accomplished by Howard Butler and Jeff McKenna. If you run into them make sure to buy them a
beer. ;-) Thanks to OSGeo for the infrastructure necessary to support the website (and mailing lists,
and wiki and svn - you get the idea).

Special thanks to Chris Schmidt for a bunch of document conversion work and to Thomas Bonfort 
and Tom Kralidis for the nifty OpenLayers/MapServer interface on the new home page.

As with anything new there are likely to be bugs or omissions with the new website. We ask for
your patience. For the moment, please report bugs or omissions to mapserver-users or file a bug
in trac (http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver) and someone will take care of it.

Oh, the site, it's at:


The old address will redirect folks for some time to come...
