Package: shapelib
Version: 1.2.10-4.1
Severity: wishlist


The shapelib release currently in Debian is 6 years old: it was released
by upstream on 07/04/2003.

Since then, upstream CVS has been evolving with some enhancements. I
include below the CVS logs for 2008.

Anonymous upstream CVS access:
 The module name is shapelib.

Please update the source package to the lastest CVS snapshot.

Thanks in advance.

Add file hooks that accept UTF-8 encoded filenames on some platforms.  Use 
 tosetup the hooks and check SHPAPI_UTF8_HOOKS for its availability.  
Currently, this
 is only available on the Windows platform that decodes the UTF-8 filenames to 
 character strings and feeds them to _wfopen and _wremove.

in DBFCreate, use default code page LDID/87 (= 0x57, ANSI)
instead of LDID/3.  This seems to be the same as what ESRI
would be doing by default.
