Reviews for this release

For the price (free) it's pretty hard to beat. Pros: 1) free 2) open 3) easy to implement basic operations 4) relatively complete GIS API Cons: 1) Only one default raster format and even with GDAL working with other formats is a pain and often doesn't work properly. Default support for tiff files is sorely needed. 2) Bugs with default toolbox 3) Some things aren't very straight forward (like moving a layer to a specific index) 4) Getting started is a hassle due to the plugin requirements. The IStatusStrip, IDockManager etc require annoying work-arounds if you don't want to make a clone of the demo map.
