OrbisCAD 1.0 has been released. OrbisCAD
(http://orbiscad.sourceforge.net) is the community precise cartography
editor which allows reading shapefiles, postGIS, DXF, DGN (7.0) and DWG
(2000) and writing shapefiles and postGIS. It can access any vectorial
format since it is built upon GDBMS (http://gdbms.sourceforge.net).
OrbisCAD is a plugin driven application so it can be extended easily by
writing plugins, creating editing tools, scripting and vectorial format
drivers. Documentation about this can be found at the OrbisCAD site and
there is a mailing list where all possible problems will be solved.
It is planned to give OrbisCAD raster support through GDAL and increase
the supported vectorial formats by integrating with OGR.
