I have prepared a PROJ.4.4.3 source release.  This release includes:

 o New proj_api.h include file ... a public include file only defining
   stuff required by external applications.  Please try to migrate to using
   this though projects.h will still work as it always did. 

 o Added support for Canadian NTv1 datum shift files. 

 o Fixed 7 parameter datum shifting support. 

 o Added "epsg" translation file, translating all EPSG projected and
   geographic coordinate system definitions into a PROJ.4 equivelent.  

 o Added cs2cs documentation on man page.  Fixed up developer man page somewhat.
 o Added pj_init_plus(), pj_is_latlong(), and pj_latlong_from_proj() 
   API entry points, though I don't think they are documented in the man
   page at this time. 

 o Slightly better building for Windows.

 o Various other minor bug fixes. 

Full ChangeLog attached.  Source available at:


I hope to prepare a binary distribution for Windows in coming days, but if
anyone else would like to do this let me know.  I am always looking for help!
