Postgis 1.5 vient de sortir. L'apport majeur de cette version est le
support geodesique. Il devient maintenant plus facile de faire des
calculs de distance en metre grace au nouveau type geography au lieu du
type geometry.
Cela veut dire que l'on va enfin avoir des versions fiables du nombre de
km de route dans OSM sans tenir compte de la projection.
L'autre chose assez interessante est l'ajout d'un systeme de calcul de
similarite de geometries. Cela va permettre normalement de belles choses.

February 4, 2010

The PostGIS development team has, after a long course of reflection
and a detailed self-examination of our various personal failings,
decided to release PostGIS 1.5.0 to the public.


This new version of PostGIS includes a new "geography" type for
managing geodetic (lat/lon) data, performance-enhanced distance
calculations, GML and KML format readers, an improved shape loading
GUI, and other new features as well.

Especial thanks to:

* Dave Skea for algorithms and mathematics necessary to support
spherical geometry
* Nicklas Avén for the new performance enhanced distance calculations
and other distance-related functions
* Sandro Santilli for new buffering features (end caps and style options)
* Olivier Courtin for GML/KML input functions
* Guillaume Lelarge for support for the upcoming PgSQL 9.0
* George Silva for an example implementation of history tables
* Vincent Picavet for Hausdorff distance calculations
* The maintainers of GEOS, Proj4, and LibXML, without whom we would
have less of a spatial database

Love, the PostGIS project steering committee,

Mark Cave-Ayland
