The first gvSIG CE Code sprint took place from Monday October 15th to Friday October 19th 2012 in Munich. The cost of this code sprint have been covered by ArchIV, Benjamin Ducke, CSGIS, Cartolab and Geomati.co. It has been a very intensive and productive week:
- integrating GRASS GIS in SEXTANTE 1.0 and discussing about the gvSIG CE release plan. The next release will be a beta release for gvSIG CE 1.0. We plan to release the first beta version of gvSIG CE 1.0 in November 2012 and the final version 1.0 before the end of that year. It will feature many bug fixes, user interface improvements, and some new/updated extensions (most importantly, a new version of SEXTANTE, OpenCAD and NavTable).
- examining a possible Integration of Geotools in gvSIG CE. This is a very important task for gvSIG CE because it will improve hugely the development of gvSIG CE. The first results allow us to estimate a roadmap and evaluate next steps. Surely more investigation and testing will be needed.
- accomplishing the best integration of OpenCadTools and Navtable in gvSIG CE
- updating the project documentation and website. A gvSIG CE Quickstart based on OADE Quickstart is now online. An example project with sample data will be part of the next CE 1.0.
The code sprint is a great opportunity to make decisions about the future of the project. It has been a very good experience for all of us. We are looking forward to the next code sprint! If you like to discuss next steps of the project we would like to hear from you (e.g. add a location for the next code sprint: Toulouse, Girona, Berlin, ?).

We're grateful to all the developers for their awesome engagement! See you soon and thank you very much to all participants!
