The main form has a new checkbox: 'No polygons (only linestrings)'. Check this option to generate a "multilinestring" feature type instead of a "polygon" feature type. A new "Help on-line" button has been added. This button links to online help, both English and Italian versions.
In the main form, there is a new checkbox: 'Generate "create view" statements'. This option is used to create useful database views for every combination of layer and geometry type (point, line, polygon, and text). A view will be created only where at least one record is present. This is useful to directly manage views as layers in other GIS and WebGIS software, e.g. Quantum GIS and UMN MapServer. PostgreSQL 8.2 generateed a warning when the Dxf2PostGIS SQL scripts populated the "path_file_dxf" field. This has been fixed.
When a file name ends with the ".DXF" suffix (with
upper-case letters), the output file would
previously overwrite (and thus destroy) the
original dxf file. This has been fixed. The
maximum number of points was increased, so
Polygons and Polylines can now have up to 40000
