Enhanced command: GT_PL_PLACE (Polyline Tool-Set 1 -> Place points/blocks along polyline vertices) : This command now allows you to set the rotation angle and scale factor of the blocks within the GT_PL_PLACE dialog itself. You no longer have to do so by modifying the GeoTools global settings. It is our medium to long-term goal in GeoTools to provide localized settings for common user parameters like Scale Factor, Text Size, Rotation and not depend on the global GeoTools settings.

Enhanced command: GT_VXLABEL (Polyline Tool-Set 1 -> Label Vertices) : This command now allows you to set the text height and rotation angle within the GT_VXLABEL dialog itself. You no longer have to do so by modifying the GeoTools global settings.

Enhanced command: GT_SEGLABEL (Polyline Tool-Set 1 -> Label Segments) : This command now allows you to set the text height within the GT_SEGLABEL dialog itself. You no longer have to do so by modifying the GeoTools global settings.

Enhanced command: GT_TC (Text Tools -> Draw Quick Text (Running Numbers)) : This command now allows you to set the text height within the GT_TC Settings dialog itself. You no longer have to do so by modifying the GeoTools global settings.

Enhanced command: GT_MT (Text Tools -> Draw Multiple Text) : This command now allows you to set the text height within the GT_MT dialog itself. You no longer have to do so by modifying the GeoTools global settings.

1. "GeoTools" user-group created in google groups.

Starting from December 1 2006, we have changed the delivery mechanism of the GeoTools newsletter.

Instead of emailing the newsletters to each one of our subscribers, we have instead created a new UserGroup in google groups called "GeoTools" and we will be sending you the news-letter through this google group.

As all of our current subscribers are receiving our newsletters via email, we will be add the names of existing subscribers into the GeoTools google group subscribers list. If any one of you do not want to be part of the GeoTools google group and want to continue to receive only direct emails from us, please write to us and we will remove your name from google group.

In terms of delivery format, you will notice no change and the newsletter emails will arrive into your email box as usual as has been happening now. If you click "Reply" on the message, you will, by default, be sending the reply to us only but if you enter the reply address as "geotools@googlegroups.com", your message will be sent to the entire newsgroup and be read by all other subscribers. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with other GeoTools users and share ideas etc.

For more information on how Google groups work, please visit http://groups.google.com

2. ** GeoTools price revised from January 1, 2007 **

To support the ongoing development and growth of GeoTools, we have effected a modest price revision of about 6 % across all licenses of GeoTools. A single user license will cost US$ 159.00 instead of the present US$ 149.00

Similar revisions will be effected on all the multiple user licenses of GeoTools as well:

2-User license: $ 264.00 (Existing price: $ 249.00)
4-user license: $ 499.00 (Existing price: $ 469.00)
Un-limited site license: $ 949.00 (Existing price: $ 899.00)
GeoTools V6 to V7 upgrade: $ 69.95 (Existing price: $ 64.95)

GeoTools V7 orders placed now will be upgraded to GeoTools V8 in April 2007 at no extra cost. In other words, if you order GeoTools V7 now, you will receive a free upgrade to GeoTools V8.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite extensively before they are released, it is humanly impossible to test-run it under every different data type or operating environment. In the event that you notice any GeoTools command not functioning as expected, please bring it to our notice asap. We will attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
