Hi Thomas: I definitely support improvements in this area. It will be an extremely important way to differentiate MapServer from other rendering engines.

Subject: [mapserver-dev] Complex Text Rendering


While I was initially planning on sending this as an email, here's a RFC online version for adding support for complex text shaping and layout in mapserver.


(raw version here until the website gets updated: https://github.com/mapserver/docs/blob/branch-6-2/en/development/rfc/ms-rfc-98.txt )

This is a major development with widespread changes and implication, and along with RFC91 (layer filter normalization) probably calls for a 7.0 release.

Note that this RFC is still incomplete, and needs quite a bit of work in order to go into the details. I'm putting it up in this state to hopefully get early comments and a feel of the temperature before moving forwards with it.

Best regards,
