Does that mean that MapServer has troubles with displaying tif Raster in your CartoWeb project or with the tif outputformat defined the mapfile? If there are troubles with tif raster data display i can't use version 5.2. To big effort to translate all my tif images to png.
In fact we get trouble here using mapserver 5x and gdal 1.5x with displaying raster tif ( getting raster layer from tif and
display it as png or jpeg in carto.
The displayed image contain strip band of color.
There's some discussion with Oliver some month ago. It should be related to php mapscript as I remember.
It's annoying as I can find a fix for that.
Converting tif is quiet easy with the gdal-transform and a bit of script. ( take only 2-3 hours for 1/4 swiss territory
> 2. If I'm right MapServer 5.x has new mapfile tags and old ones from MapServer 4.x are not supported anymore. So I guess i will have some problems if I just update MapServer 4.10.1 to MapServer 5.x. Is there a documentation how I can install 2 MapServer versions on the same server and link my productive CartoWeb projects to MapServer 4.10.1 and the development projects to 5.x?

I think you should have at least two instances ( chroot or whatever ) of apache+mapserver+php.
Or just another host ...

>> I was looking for informations about MapServer update to version 5.0.x for a debian system. So far I'm using version 4.10.1. A look at cartoweb.org shows that version 4.10.3 is supported. Are there any reasons to wait for an update to version 5.0? On packages.debian.org MapServer packages 5.0.x are in state testing or unstable. This might be a good reason to wait for an update.
