ArcGIS 9.3 SP 1 released and other updates

ESRI has released Service Pack 1 for ArcGIS 9.3 earlier this month. Service pack is available for download from ESRI’s support site download section. The service pack was announced earlier (see posts ArcGIS 9.3 SP1 fixes, Part 1 and ArcGIS 9.3 SP1 fixes, Part 2)  and more fixes are added to the list.


Even if you are not too interested in bug fixes you should consider downloading and installing it because it also introduces new functionality. New features are listed separately in a PDF document. The feature list includes:

  • Export to CAD is now ArcView license tool
  • Support for WFS 1.0 (1.1 is already supported at 9.3)
  • Improved visibility of scale bar for web applications
  • Support for Windows Mobile Smartphone’s
  • Full support for editing data in PostGres SQL
  • Progress indicator for map and globe caching


Scale bar visibility improvements


Unfortunately, there was a one part of code that was not included in SP 1. That is Topology validation patch and it is available as separate download.


ESRI has released Service Pack 1 for all other 9.3 products. So now SP1 is available for:


I would recommend you download these and check the new features list.
