I have released a new FWTools suite build for Linux and Win32.

As usual, this new release includes the latest snapshots of GDAL, OpenEV
and MapServer (4.5). Other noteworthy FWTools changes:

  o Upgraded to Python 2.3.
  o Upgraded to ECW 3.1 SDK.

  o Added OGR SQLite support.

I *intend* to add ECW support on Linux soon, but I wasn't able to get it
in this release due to build problems with the old gcc (2.95) I use for
FWTools builds.  I also hope to upgrade Linux to Python 2.3 but that may
be a while.  I am also working irregularly on building OpenEV on MacOSX with
the intent of eventually producing an FWTools release for that platform.  No
timeline for completion though.

As usual the release can be downloaded from:
