Thuban is back.
There was a period of slow development with Thuban, where it just worked.
Since the 1.0.0 release of Thuban in 2003
quite a bit of new features got added and released as a development 1.1.0.
Our users were never presented a version called stable. Now they are -
with Thuban 1.2.0. Beside this long due duty, the new development
team has brought Thuban up to be compatible with newer versions
of python, wxWidgets, pysqlite and more. There is a new windows installer.
This was classic boring maintenance, but now we are in a position
to add new features and accelerate Thuban's rate of innovation again.

Give Thuban a spin and help us to improve it.

Changes up to Thuban 1.2.0 (released 2007-03-13)

 - Python <= 2.4 calls C extension modules with the set locale.
   This means those modules need to be robust against a locale
   where LC_NUMERIC is set in a way that the decimal_point might
   be a comma or something else. Problems are diagnosed 
   at least with shapelib, proj and gdal. To cope with it we:

   + Added a new option --setdecimalcommalocale to runtests.py so that
   all tests can be checked with a comma as  decimal_point, if we
   can find such an LC_NUMERIC. We only try a few in test/localessupport.py.

   + Fixed behaviour with proj by switching to LC_NUMERIC "C" before
   initialising the projection and afterward switch back.

   + Added a workaround to internal shapelib and pyshapelib.
   (Bernhard Reiter)

 - Startup improved: We fail right away if the internal encoding could
   not be determined. In this case, try to set the LANGUAGE variable to
   one value and use no colon.
   If we startup you can see the internal encoding in the about dialog now.
   (Bernhard Reiter)

 - Support for pysqlite2. (Didrik Pinte)

 - Added packagin directory, which already has an example how
   to load all extensions on windows. (Didrik Pinte)

 - Updated code to support new style wxPython 2.6 imports. So
   you need at least wyPython 2.6 . (Didrik Pinte)

 - New Classification "Pattern": Classify text attributes by regexp. 
   (Frank Koormann)

 - New or Improved Extensions:

    + Improved svxexport extension 1.0.1 (Bernhard Reiter)

	* Fixed ARC layer writing: No filling is done.
	You could actually get polylines with filling in between,
	when the classification for the lines had a fill color.
	E.g. this happens when you generate a classification from a ramp.

	* Fixed label export.

    + New export_shapefile extension (Jan-Oliver Wagner)
      Available from the experimental menu.
