Description

I just updated to the latest revision with osgeo4w and I'm noticing that vectors are added with the old symbology. I also added the latest trunk under Linux and here it seems that is ok (added with the new symbology).

Hi Jurgen,

Replying to [comment:1 jef]:

is new symbology activated in the qgis options?

sorry, it wasn't. But it was a clean install, should not be activated by default?

By the way, activating the option and adding a vector causes qgis to crash. Does not happen on osgeo4w/1.6

Only if you removed HKCU\\Software\\QuantumGIS in the registry.

Does not happen on osgeo4w/1.6

On any layer?

re-installing osgeo4w fixes the problem, so I'm not sure this can be classified as bug.

I guess that someone can always make a "house cleaning" deleting also that registry keys, so it would probably better so fix it somewhere in the future. In any case I'll leave it to you.
