The beta period for Map Suite GIS Editor has ended and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their participation. As of today, we’ve launched an updated version of the GIS Editor that adds numerous new features, improves performance and squashes the bugs you reported. And, as a token of our appreciation, those of you who tested the GIS Editor during the beta will receive a free subscription to the new release of the GIS Editor good through the end of September.
To take advantage of the new release, we suggest that you first uninstall the beta version and then install the latest release by downloading it from download.thinkgeo.com/MapSuiteGISEditor.msi.
