I see that a new patch version of GDAL (2.1.2) was released a couple of days ago (14th Oct). I tried the OsGeo4W advanced installer to see if it is picking it up, but it is still showing the latest version as 2.1.1 Does anyone know if when the next point release (and version) of QGIS is released in a couple of days (21st Oct) if it will definately move over to GDAL 2.1.2?
Version 2.1.2 has fixed an issue with corrupting shapefiles that we are very keen to move to. Alternatively, is there a way to update GDAL version without QGIS?
I can test versions at home, but at work we have very strict IT that does not allow anything 'DEV' or even the LR releases of QGIS (only LTR!).
