NDbfReader does not read Unicode characters from dbf files correctly

We're using version and have discovered that the NdbfReader does not correctly read Unicode characters.
Has this been fixed in a more recent version or are there any plans to fix it please?

Hi Kevin,

Can you please send us a sample shapefile and a DBF file so that we can test it and fix the problem? You can either attach it to a post in this forum or send it to us via email. Thank you in advance!

We would like to inform you that we have published a new version of Nevron Vision for .NET. In the new version you can configure the encoding of the DBF file for each ESRI shapefile through the new DbfEncoding property of the NEsriShapefile class. It is by default set to UTF-8.

Previously the Nevron DBF reader was only using ISO8859-1 (aka Latin1) encoding as per the DBF specification, but now defaults to UTF-8, with an option to change it as mentioned above.
