     26
     27Please [wiki:SubmitTicket report any defects].
     28
     29== Compatibility ==
     30Click [wiki:2.1MigrationInstructions here] for instructions on how to migrate to MGOS 2.1 from older releases.
     31
     32MGOS 2.1.0 is compatible with [http://fdo.osgeo.org/content/fdo-340-downloads FDO 3.4.0].
     33
     34If you are running Windows 2000, there may be issues if you have multiple PHP installations. The [http://trac.osgeo.org/mapguide/ticket/657 php extension that is supposed to resolve this issue] was built with APIs that do not exist in Windows 2000.
     35
     36== FDO ==
     37
     38Some RDBMS FDO providers may not work out of the box without the proper libraries installed. For example:
     39
     40 * PostGIS provider requires libpq.dll
     41 * King.Oracle provider requires Oracle Instant Client
     42
     43This normally happens if you installed MapGuide on a different machine from where the RDBMS is installed.
     44
     45By default, these providers are not marked for installation. You may mark them for installation when going through the installer steps. However the above notes apply.
     46
     47To enable such providers, edit the providers.xml file in the server\fdo directory
     48
     49If you do install any RDBMS FDO providers, you may need to copy any required libraries into the MapGuide Server's FDO directory and restart your MapGuide Server.
     50
     51== API changes ==
     52
     53 * !MgResourceService
     54    * !ResourceExists(!MgResourceIdentifier resourceId) - Determines if a given resource id exists. In previous releases, [http://trac.osgeo.org/mapguide/ticket/288 calling this method throws MgNotImplementedException]
     55
     56== New Server Configuration (serverconfig.ini) Options ==
     57
     58 * Rendering Service
     59   * !ClampPoints : reduce the thickness of zero width lines, especially for horizontal and vertical lines (default = 0)
     60   * !GeneralizeData : reduce the perceived thickness by reducing the density of the rendered data (default = 0)
     61
     62== New Web Configuration (webconfig.ini) Options ==
     63
     64These parameters allow you to tune how many connections the web tier will attempt to open with the server, which is important on Windows where only 63 connections are supported.  These are per-client, so if you're running multiple agents (php, mapagent, .net, etc), or agents on multiple web tier servers, make sure to take them all into account.
     65
     66 * !AdministrativeConnectionProperties
     67   * !MaxConnections (Default 2)
     68 * !ClientConnectionProperties
     69   * !MaxConnections (Default 12)
     70 * !SiteConnectionProperties
     71   * !MaxConnections (Default 6)
     72
     73== Disk Space ==
     74
     75The installer requires at least 1.5GB of disk space on C: during installation. Otherwise installation may not proceed.
     76
     77If you do not have sufficient space on C:, you can open the installer file with [http://www.7-zip.org 7-zip] and extract the contents to another drive, and run the extracted setup.exe from there.  It may also be helpful to set your TEMP environment variable to a different drive.
     78
