New Portable GIS Releases

| Comments

I’m pleased to announce not one, but two new releases of Portable GIS! The first, version 4.2, contains QGIS 2.4 and PostGIS 1.5 and will be the last release to include that version of PostGIS.

The second, version 5, contains QGIS 2.4 and PostGIS 2.1 and all future releases will be based on this. Get them here:

There are two important things about these two releases. The first is that the download size is almost twice what it was previously- this is out of my control and is due to the increased size of the QGIS installation. The second is that version 5.0 should be considered a beta release as it’s very much un-tested. If there are any problems let me know via the Portable GIS google group.
