The uDig team has at long last decided to make another public release. This release is dubbed SC1 (Sanity Check 1) in order to indicate that a final release is imminent.
This release primarily features too many bug fixes to mention but also little tweaks to the UI. For example Shapefile now has a method for setting the Character set being used.
A good summary of the new features found in uDig 1.1 is at http://udig.refractions.net/confluence/display/EN/What+is+new
