Ed's announcement about FM9 is great ... particularly that it will be available as a 64-bit application. That's been my one great complaint about cartographic software. 64-bit processors and the larger memories available to 64-bit systems have been the industry standard for a long time. But no important manufacturer of cartographic software has been able to find the way into the 21st century yet. When I buy a computer with a 64-bit processor and 16, 32 and 64 GB of memory, I think It's reasonable in this day and age to want to be able to use that memory.
Unfortunately, ProFantasy and Battlemap Games have made it clear that CC and MapForge won't be making the same journey for a long time. I have all of these products, but fortunately, for me, FM is the one that I use. So I'm quite eager to see FM9 arrive.
