Homepage:        http://postgis.refractions.net/
Version:         1.1.4

Update from version 1.1.2 to version 1.1.4. Mainly a bug fix release

PostGIS adds support for geographic objects to
 the PostgreSQL object-relational database.
 In effect, PostGIS "spatially enables" the 
 PostgreSQL server, allowing it to be used as
 a backend for GIS.
 PostGIS/PostgreSQL includes the following functionality:
 <li> Simple Features as defined by the OpenGIS Consortium (OGC)
 <li> Support for Well-Known Text and Well-Known Binary representations
      of GIS objects
 <li> Fast spatial indexing using GiST
 <li> Geospatial analysis functions   
 <li> PostgreSQL JDBC extension objects corresponding to the geometries   
 <li> Support for OGC access functions as defined by the Simple
      Features Specification

Best regards

    Your FreeGIS Core Team.
