What do you think about moving to Windows 8 Metro style? Is it possible to port MapWinGIS ActiveX to C++ WinRT Component DLL? It is a lot of work to do to change from GDI to WinRT API, isn't it?

Hi Poom,

We don't have any plans in that direction. We're currently concentrating on MapWindow v4.9 which will be build using VS2010 and .NETv4

Perhaps when Win8 is more common in a few years we can decide to move. Of course you are free to work on it your self.
