ArcPad 8 - Service Pack 3 Released

ArcPad 8.0 Service Pack 3 is now available for download from the ESRI Support Website.

The service Pack addresses a number of issues, including Windows Vista/Windows 7 compatibility, foreign language support for ArcPad Studio and various performance enhancements. A full list of the issues addressed can be found in the ArcPad 8.0 SP3 Readme file.

Out of interest, we tested Service Packs 2 and 3 on a Trimble Nomad with an AXF file with a single feature class that had:
  • 55 attributes
  • 3 different subtypes
  • 25 coded value domains
The time taken from when you digitised a point on the map to when the form displayed was 7 seconds with SP2, but only 2.5 seconds with SP3. General map navigation was also noticeably better.
