32 and 64 bit versions
MapInfo Professional v12.5 will be available in both a 32 bit and a full, native, 64 bit version. The 64 bit version includes an all new ribbon based user interface.
Easier to learn, easier to use!
The 64 bit version of MapInfo Professional has an all new ribbon based user interface which makes everyday tasks easier to learn and do than ever before.
This new interface takes MapInfo Professional’s renowned combination of power and ease-of-use further than ever before!
Mini-toolbars – quick access!
Right-click in your Map windows to use the new mini-toolbars for quick access to common functions.
Create high quality output quicker and easier than ever before
The all new Layout Designer makes it quicker and easier than ever before to prepare Layouts for printing and sharing. The new Layout toolbar (right) appears in the 32 bit version. The 64 bit version uses a tab on the ribbon. Grids and guidelines make lining things up a snap!
Easily add images to your layouts
A new Image Control allows for easy embedding of pictures, logos and images of all types on to your Layout windows.
What you see is what you get!
In the Layout window, work directly with the map layers and labels. You can zoom and pan the map as needed – no more switching back and forth between the Map window and the Layout window!
“Active” browser windows too!
Browser windows can also be manipulated directly on the Layout page. Choose the fields to display, adjust column widths, sort and filter all on the page!
Better, Faster, Stronger
MapInfo Professional v12.5 brings improved productivity and performance. In particular, buffering and other object processing tasks will get done faster than ever before.
- The 64 bit MapInfo Professional v12.5 will take advantage of the memory in your computer. Earlier versions of MapInfo Professional make use of a maximum of 2GB RAM (on 32 bit systems) or 4GB RAM (on 64 bit systems). This leads to incremental performance improvements in many areas of the software.
- Both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of MapInfo Professional 12.5 will take advantage of multiple cores/processors for buffering and other object processing tasks! This can result in dramatic reductions in the length of time needed to do these operations.
Once again, the release date for the 32 bit MapInfo Professional v12.5 is June 2014 and the 64 bit release is scheduled for October 2014.
