The following patch adds data defined label position for the new labeling engine. Martin, could you review it?
And maybe it is a good time to synchronize the pal changes (also the curved labeling) with the main pal library

The patch is improved now. There is the additional capability of showing direction symbols ('<','>') for labels in case of placement parallel to line or polygon border.

#2 Updated by Marco Hugentobler over 13 years ago

Added another improved patch with the following new features:
- data defined label distance
- data defined rotation (only possible in case of data defined position to not interfere with the smart label placement of pal)
- possibility to have font size in map units

finally I've looked at the patch and it looks fine. As I don't know when exactly you return from your holidays, I've committed the patch in so that it doesn't miss the deadline for 1.6 release.
