We are happy to announce about an important release which includes fixes of critical bugs (e.g., memory leaks in GDI+), memory optimizations and introduces a support of SLD styling format. From now on, you can easily export or import map styles written in SLD using MapSurfer.NET Studio (see figures below). This new feature facilitates interaction among other mapping toolkits such as well-known MapServer or GeoServer.

- Improved: GeometryExpression property has been removed from RasterSymbolizer.
- Improved: ASP.NET based mapping service got an implementation of the IRegisteredObject interface to properly work with the hosting environment.
- Fixed: In MSSQL data source provider, removed unnecessary dbo prefix in a query to get the layer extent.
- Fixed: Some memory leaks have been eliminated in GDIRenderer.
- Improved: Excessive caching of GDI objects in GDIRenderer.
- Improved: Support for views in MSSQL data source provider.
- New: Export/Import styles in Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) format.
