Service Pack 4 for ArcGIS 10 to be released in March

Esri is planning another service pack for ArcGIS 10. This will be the 4th service pack for 10. It will address several issues. Here are a few that might be of some interest:

  • Changes to layer names inside a group layer file are not saved/persisted when ArcCatalog is closed.
  • ArcMap crashes intermittently when editing while GPS connection is open
  • GPS Toolbar does not recognize COM ports over 9.
  • Projecting annotation from a file geodatabase feature dataset causes the text to draw a huge distance away from the proper location in the output.  This is also reproducible in a personal geodatabase and data in SDE.
  • ArcMap crashes with runtime error when reconciling certain child versions with default
  • Layer with marker fill symbol loses its background color when adding to basemap layer with symbol level turned on.
  • ArcPy local function tools do not accept a Mosaic dataset layer in the TOC as input
  • When composite locator is created in the ArcSDE database, long property names cause it to fail
  • Synchronizing a one-way replica is crashing ArcCatalog and ArcMap
  • Synchronization fails while checking in the edits from a file geodatabase
  • When running the Spatial Analyst > Hydrology > Fill tool and specifying a Z limit, ArcGIS Version 10 SP2 fills less sinks than ArcGIS Version 9.3.1 SP2.
  • Applying a Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) grid 1:500,000 reference system to a data frame with non-WGS84 datum crashes the software
  • When reconciling certain versions that are involved in a Parcel Fabric, the error returned is, “Version could not be reconciled,” with no extended description.
  • Export metadata to FGDC CSDGM format: when an item’s spatial reference uses parameter names that are all lower case, the projection parameters are not exported
  • Reconciling a version with its parent version corrupts the geometric network connectivity
  • When map tips are enabled, the Hyperlink tool’s cursor no longer turns black when hovering over a hyperlinked feature

Those are just a few issues the service pack will address that I found interesting. There are 7 pages of issues addressed with SP 4. For a complete list of the issues SP 4 is to address go to: http://downloads2.esri.com/support/downloads/other_/183410.0_SP4_Announcement.pdf
