Upgrade GPSBabel to 1.4.1

Reported by: jmckenna Owned by: jef
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: gpsbabel
Cc: hamish, daisuke, venkat, hhayashi, jef

Description

Some topics for discussion:

  • as noted in ticket:59 GPSBabel is also used by QGIS
  • as noted in ticket:59 GPSBabel ships with libexpat.dll
  • the GUI should also be included in the new package (gpsbabelfe.exe), which comes with many QT dlls
  • also note that last week's OSGeo server problems (http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/sac/2010-July/002657.html) mean that we currently have no access to upload a new package (hopefully soon though!)

Hamish: are you the package maintainer of GPSBabel for OSGeo4W?

Nope. I maintain the v.in.gpsbabel module in GRASS, but we just use the gpsbabel.exe command line interface there.

Hamish: did you add the gpsbabel package to OSGeo4W through ticket:59 ? That ticket says that you did.

If so I would like to upgrade that package. (maybe I wasn't clear on this....I just want to upgrade the package, so I want to make sure that I talk to the person who added this gpsbabel package through ticket:59 )
