#325 closed defect (outdated)
update mapserver/mapscript package to 6.2.0 (and cleanup?)
|Reported by:||brushtyler||Owned by:|
In this moment there are a lots of different mapserver/mapscript versions shipped with OSGeo4W, most of them are old or release candidates.
The package listing shows that part is a mess:
mapscript-dev-python, 5.2b3-1 mapscript-java, 5.0.2-1 mapscript-python, 5.0.2-1 mapserv_demo, 5.0-1 mapserver, 5.2.2-2 mapserver-dev, 5.2rc1-1 mapserver-tutorial, 5.6-10 mapserver56, 5.6.6-1 mapserver6, 6.2rc1-3
We should think to remove any of them and just add the newest stable mapserver 6.2.0, in addition with its mapscript-python package.

Who's the maintainer (providing there's one)?
It would be good if we could just drop the executables/libraries from mapserver.org, though I guess it's not possible.

I think the packages were done by jmckenna (our new president) by repackaging ms4w builds (including apache).

I've made the current 6.2 package in osgeo4w.... and would to do the upgrade... but currently I can't. It's in my high priority list. It will be done as soon as possible.

It seems that mapserver v6.2-rc1 was already replaced by the stable mapserver v6.2.0 in Jan 28, 2013, although the ticket wasn't updated...
I've built mapserver6.2.0 + python-mapscript6.2.0. Since the mapserver package is already updated, I would upload the python-mapscript one only. I'm testing it using the mapserver shipped with OSGeo4W.

Unfortunately my python-mapscript doesn't work with the mapserver6.2.0 from OSGeo4W. I can import mapscript from python, it seems to work fine until I execute few statements, then it crashes somewhere...
Who built the current mapserver package? Could he build the python-mapscript as well?

Oh well, then Tamas came, added 6.4.1 packages, even ran mapserver nightlies for a while - but is long gone again. I just "updated" the mapserver package to include a copy of
zlib_osgeo.dll but named
zlib1.dll, because I noticed that the 32bit mapscript-python packages wouldn't work otherwise (note that the previous 6.4.1-3 was from 2014).

I'd add that the versions listed at http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/wiki/PackageListing#MapServer also need updating as the current state can be confusing to users.
