  1. It seems that OSOR is having problems with the continuous requests for gvSIG downloads and they are in the process of fixing it.
    Another link where you can download gvSIG 1.9:

  2. I hope it is because many are downloading it, because the complaint is on the distribution lists.

  3. The download is not possible for me. One: almost all downloads are delayed until eternity (hours) and I give up on the effort. Two: I had done it this weekend, I downloaded it! The problem is that the file turns out to be corrupt and I can't install anything. I will keep trying.
