Yes a new MS4W release is in development. A lot of the underlying
libraries, for MapServer and GDAL, are being upgraded for MS4W, and
therefore these changes will warrant an MS4W 3.0 release.
For the first time in MS4W, we will use the normal release cycle:
- a few betas will be released, to test all of the new functionality,
and make sure there are no problems
- if no problems are reported, then a release candidate for MS4W 3.0
will be released
- finally the MS4W 3.0 release will occur
I ask that all MS4W community members follow along the progress of this
release through the associated ticket
(http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2034). You can create an
account there, login, and add comments. (it would be great to have
several users add themselves to the CC of that ticket and then test each
beta in their own environment!!!) I'll also announce beta and RC
releases on this email list, so hopefully users can test them right away.
So the short answer to the question is: MS4W 3.0-beta1 is in
development, and that will include MapServer 5.4.0.
If you can't wait and need MapServer 5.4.0 today - you can use the
5.4.0-rc2 release as described at:
