v2.5-beta [02-03-14]

GeoServer team is pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.5-beta. This release is packed with new features and interesting new extensions. Here is some reason why you should try 2.5.-beta. WCS 2.0 and WCS 2.0 EO GeoServer 2.5 is now shipping with WCS 2.0 as  a core module, a major improvement in terms of usability compared to both WCS 1.0 and WCS 1.1. For example, getting back the full raster is now as easy as: http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wcs?request=GetCoverage&service=WCS&version=2.0.1&coverageId=nurc__Img_Sample while getting the same, but with half the size, can be achieved using: http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wcs?request=GetCoverage&service=WCS&version=2.0.1&coverageId=nurc__Img_Sample&scaleFactor=0.5 Paired with the WCS 2.0 module we have the WCS 2.0 Earth Observation (EO) extension, which adds the ability to expose the time dimension using standard extensions to the base WCS 2.0 protocol.
We’d like to thank DLR and EUMESAT for sponsoring this work, and GeoSolutions for carrying it out on their behalf. Batch layer importer extension A new extension that allows for batch import of data, dubbed “the importer”, is now also available. It supplements the existing GeoServer ui by adding a much more convenient workflow for layer configuration. For example previously configuring multiple Shapefiles (or multiple PostGIS tables) required users to tediously configure one by one. With the importer it can achieved with a few easy to follow steps. The importer is accessible from both the web ui and a REST api, making it easy to use in a variety of environments. The importer also allows for consumption of formats that GeoServer does not support natively. Formats such as KML and CSV can be conveniently ingested into an existing data formats such as PostGIS and be efficiently served. The importer was developed and contributed by Boundless. A special thanks to them and the MapStory project for providing most of the funding and requirements for the extension. WMS performance and quality improvements

v2.3.5 [08-19-13]

The GeoServer team is pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.3.5:

  • Downloads (zip, war and exe) are listed on the GeoServer 2.3.5 page along with documentation and extensions.
This is a stable release containing several important fixes:
  • A couple new authentication options for LDAP, thanks to Mauro Bartolomeoli for this work.
  • The file browser used when defining a new data source once again lets windows users explore the available drives
  • Alessio has back ported a fix for creating a data sources referencing a shared file system.
  • GeoWebCache has fixes for WMS 1.3.0 and database security (thanks to Jonathan Moules for reporting this one).
  • More details can be found in the GeoServer 2.3.5 Release Notes.
This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 9.5 and is the last scheduled release for the GeoServer 2.3.x series.

v2.4-beta [07-23-13]

GeoServer team is pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.4-beta.

  • The headline feature is a new implementation of the KML module.  This implementation introduces a new WFS KML output format leveraging the extended data with schema KML construct. Faster KML generation (similar speeds to GML2 output) and schema compliant KML output.
    It is great to have a clean implementation to start any future enhancements against, however we do encourage all organisations that depend on GeoServer for KML output to take part in testing this beta.
    Thanks to the NSW Geological Survey for sponsoring this work.
  • A lot of under-the-hood changes have been taking place for raster support. Many of the improvements will be realised in the community modules for the NetCDF and Image Mosaic formats. One visible change of all this hard work is the configuration of band information.
  • Application Schema users should note that joining behaviour is now on by default.
  • New community module for libjpeg-turbo
  • New community module for WMS Earth Observation profile, this required some API changes to GeoServer core (see GSIP 92 below).
  • The much loved CSS module has been promoted to an extension. This is significant as it represents our first non-Java module obtaining extension status.
    The CSS module is written in Scala in part to take advantage of the excellent functional programming facilities for for calculating derived styles.
  • WPS processes can now operate against secured data (see GSIP 96 below)
  • This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 10-beta
  • This release is made in conjunction with GeoWebCache 1.5.0 – thanks to Kevin for publishing on such short notice.
See the GeoServer 2.4-beta release notes for more details. About GeoServer 2.4 GeoServer 2.4 continues our 6-month release cycle (with this beta release marking feature-complete for FOSS4G). Volunteer opportunities:
  • We strongly encourage all interested parties to take part in testing GeoServer 2.4-beta
  • We would like to thank Frank Gasdorf and related volunteers for the excellent work translating GeoServer into additional languages
    (English, Dutch, German and Korean are at 100%). If you would like to take part, or just check how far translation is going, please visit GeoServer Localization)
The following change control requests were completed during the development of GeoServer 2.4:
  • Replace old KML module with new one (GSIP 98)
  • Allow plugins to modify WMS MapContent before map rendering (GSIP 92)
  • Machinery to pass thread locals down in thread pools (GSIP 96) – also available in 2.3.4

v2.3.1 [04-29-13]

The GeoServer team is happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.3.1, now available for download. This is the first bug-fix release of the 2.3.x stable series, and packs 34 changes between bug fixes and improvements in different departments. Here is an highlight:

  • The XSLT output format generator module graduated from community to official extension (work performed GeoSolutions Andrea Aime with sponsorship from the City of Wien)
  • A couple of changes in the SQL Server data increase performance, provided you enable the relevant flags. One is the ability to transfer geometries in SQL Server native format, as opposed to using WKB, which avoids the slow WKB generation routines included in SQL Server, the other allows to disable native paging, which can sometimes lead the SQL Server query planner to create bad data access plans (GEOS-5750 and GEOS-5314). The native geometry serialization was sponsored by Norwegian Directorate for Nature Management and performed by Bouvet, thanks to Stewart Loving-Gibbard for the paging patch.
  • A new flag has been added to prevent the resolution of XML external entities (normally enabled by default in XML parsers), which can be used to prevent some kinds of XML attacks (GEOS-5273 and GEOS-5314). The work was performed by GeoSolution under sponsorship from the City of Wien.
  • Some SLD related fixes (GEOS-4214, GEOS-5767) (thanks to GeoSolutions’s Andrea and Carlo for those)
  • A bunch of improvements in the monitoring extension (GEOS-5725, GEOS-5732, GEOS-5758 and GEOS-5766) (thanks to OpenGeo’s Justin Deoliveria and Ian Schneider for those, plus one from Andrea)
  • Fixed an issue that prevented GeoServer from serving back GetMap requests under Windows when using the JRE (GEOS-5768) (thanks goes to GeoSolutions’ Simone for this one)
  • GWC will now respect the layer HTTP caching settings, and a memory leak has been fixed in respect to the WFS-T integration (GEOS-5686, GEOS-5659)  (thanks’ to OpenGeo’s Ian Schneider for these)
  • The German translation maintainers fixed an encoding problem which resulted in weird chars appearing in the GeoServer UI (GEOS-5641) (thanks goes to Frank Gasdorf and Oskar Fonts for their continuous work on UI internationalization)
  • GeoServer UI is completely available in Dutch, German and Korean (thanks goes to Wouter van Nifterick, Frank Gasdorf, Stefan Engelhardt, Minpa Lee and others), feel free to review and contribute at Transifex.com
  • Finally, a few fixes and improvements in the security subsystem (GEOS-5698, GEOS-5751, GEOS-5753, GEOS-5783) (thanks to Christian Mueller for his continuous work on the security subsystem)
And there is more, you can find everything in the GeoServer release notes. Also, looking at the corresponding GeoTools 9.1 release notes we can find some extra goodies:
  • Improved support for sparse shapefiles (GEOT-2791) (thanks to Dieter DePaepe)

    v2.2 [10-04-12]

    The GeoServer team is happy to announce to the release of GeoServer 2.2 and encourage you to download it and try out the great new features. The release of a new major version update is a big deal (the last one was over 16 months ago) and, while you may have heard about some of the new features on the developer list, here are the highlights all in one place: Referencing

    • NTv2 and NADCon Support allows for datum transformations with cm level precision (instead of the usual 4m, when all goes well). Both will activate only if the grid files are present in the data dir, so by default the mere presence of the method is harmless, but generally speaking this is very good news for whoever needs to increase reprojection accuracy. Thanks to Oscar Fonts and Andrea Aime.
    • Continued work for supporting high accuracy datum transformations that now allow for user defined transformations supplied via WKT. Thanks to the Catalan Cartographic Institute for funding the work and to Oscar and Andrea for doing the development.
    • A new reprojection console allows users to interactively test transformations of points and other geometries back and forth between the chosen CRS, and also to verify the transformation method used matches the user expectations. Thanks Andrea.
    • Better support for un-referenced data with the new EPSG:40400 code that identifies a coordinate system made up of a generic 2D Cartesian plane. As well as support for EPSG:102113 as an alias for Web Mercator.
    Data access
    • Database-level security implements the ability to use DBMS session startup and teardown scripts to alter user access the database during a specific request while falling back on connection pooling when the request is complete. Thanks to Astrium GEO-Information Services for sponsoring GeoSolutions to make this improvement.
    • Sorting and paging is now available in all WFS versions (in 1.0 and 1.1 as a vendor param) via the sortBy and startIndex/maxFeature parameters. Thanks to Justin Deoliveira and Andrea.
    • A new lenient capabilities mode that allows the GeoServer capabilities documents to remain functioning despite the presence of misconfigured layers. Thanks to David Winslow for this work.
    • A new experimental OGR data store provides access to  a rich set of readable formats without needing special bridge libraries.
    • The image collection coverage store allows users to serve un-referenced data through WMS using image/pixel space as the coordinate system. Thanks to SFMTA for sponsoring OpenGeo to complete this work.
    • Application schema support has performance, stability, and functional improvements including reduced memory footprint, SQL joining support for more efficient queries of complex information models, support for WMS, and support for GML 3.2 application schemas. Thanks to Rini Angreani, Niels Charlier, Victor Tey, Ben Caradoc-Davies, and the rest of the team at CSIRO. This work was funded through AuScope by the Australian Government.
    • BigTiff support has received some performance and scalability improvements courtesy of upgrade to imageio-ext 1.1.5.
    Security
    • A major retrofit of the GeoServer security subsystem adding support for a number of new authentication mechanisms including LDAPdigest and X.509 certificate authentication, and more. These improvements also includes the addition of user groups. This is a continuation of work started by Christian Mueller as a Google Summer of Code project;  thanks to NOAA for sponsoring OpenGeo to help Christian and Justin bring it to completion.
    Web Feature Source (WFS)
    • Support for WFS 2.0 adds some interesting new capabilities to the WFS protocol such as paging, stored queries, and extended operators. Thanks to IGN France and Géoportail for sponsoring OpenGeo to make this improvement.
    • Along with WFS 2.0 comes support for GML 3.2.
    Web Map Service (WMS)
    • Support for additional dimensions brings time and elevation support to both vector and raster data. And, with support for time, comes support for animation in WMS. Thanks to Andrea, Alessio and GeoSolutions on both counts.
    • Rendering transformations provide a bridge between WPS and WMS and allow for very powerful visualization capabilities for processing through normal WMS. Thanks to GeoSolutions for sponsoring this work (and Andrea for implementing it).
    • Support for 8-bit PNG output with transparency resulting in a nice tradeoff of performance and appealing visualization. Special thanks to Andrea for this new feature.
    Web Processing Service (WPS)
    • New WPS features include support for asynchronous process execution and a variety of new processes.
    Virtual Services
    • Virtual services allow GeoServer to support the notion of multitenancy, enabling a single GeoServer instance to publish multiple service endpoints. Thanks to NOAA for sponsoring OpenGeo to complete this improvement and a special thanks to Micah Wengren of NOAA for his leadership on the project.
    • Workspace local settings allow for specifying service settings such as contact information,  proxy settings, and output format settings on a per workspace basis.
    • Styles and layer groups can also now be defined on a per workspace basis.
    GeoWebCache
    • GeoWebCache configuration GUI is now available directly from within the GeoServer web admin interface, including: the ability to define new grid sets, specify which layers to cache, seed or truncate the cache, and more. Big thanks to Gabriel and the GeoWebCache team for furthering improving integration between GeoWebCache in GeoServer.
    Wow! And that isn’t even everything, many other bug fixes and improvements have made it into the 2.2 series as well. Everyone who uses GeoServer should have at least one or two items in the above list to be excited about. Download GeoServer 2.2, try it out, and provide feedback on the GeoServer mailing list.  As with any new version, be sure to backup your data directory before upgrading. Thanks again for using GeoServer! Download GeoServer 2.2  

    v2.1.4 [06-12-12]

    The GeoServer team is happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.1.4, now available for download. For the most part this is a maintainance release consisting of bug fixes, but as usual a few new features and improvements have managed to creep in. The release contains a total of  46 between bug fixes and improvements. Some of the new and noteworthy include:

    • various improvements to the SQL server data store extension
    • snappier GUI when working with data whose coordinate system cannot be direclty matched to a native EPSG code
    • more accurate GetFeatureInfo
    • support for geography columns in SQL views against PostGIS
    • GetLegendGraphics now takes into account UOM and DPI parameters
    • ip based control and blacklisting in the control-flow extension
    • before/after custom sql statements when hitting DBSMs (session oriented sql, can be used to switch authentication in the database
    And more. Check out the change log for the entire list. A big thank you to all core developers, and a particular mention to users that contributed patches for this release. This includes:
    • Lars Lingner for addding the “forceLabel” parameter to GetLegendGraphic
    • Rudi Hochmeister for speeding up the JSON output format on large layers
    • Robert Coup for making SQL views parameters easier to pass in

    v2.1.0 [05-16-11]

    The GeoServer team is happy to announce the fifth release candidate for 2.1, now available for download. This release brings some bug fixes and addresses a few residual regressions compared to the old 2.0.x series. In no particular order:

    • While GeoServer 2.1 uses extended CQL (ECQL) for all the CQL related activities, it now also preserve backwards compatibility with the old CQL language (in particular, new keywords in ECQL might have conflicted with valid CQL statements).
    • The compatibility towards Google Earth 6 was improved too, making Google Earth 6 properly display KMZ files with embedded images.
    • The querylayer module, allowing for cross layer filtering, was promoted from community to extension module and is thus available as an official extension in the release.
    • Finally, GeoServer 2.1-RC5 avoids HTTP session creation on all OGC service paths, even when using basic authentication, providing better overall scalability.
    Check out the change log for the full list. Thanks to everyone who tested RC4 and helped us flush out these last few issues. You can continue to help us get to the official 2.1 release by downloading and trying out RC5. Be sure to report any issues in the bug tracker or on the mailing list. Unless new regressions or serious bugs are found RC5 will be re-released as 2.1.0 final. Thanks for using GeoServer!

    v2.1-RC4 [04-09-11]

    The GeoServer team is happy to announce the fourth release candidate for 2.1, now available for download. This release brings some important bug fixes and addresses a few regressions discovered in RC3. This includes a new parameter that will once again allow multiple GeoServer instances to run from a single data directory. This parameter, named “GWC_DISKQUOTA_DISABLED”, will disable the GeoWebCache disk quota module preventing it from maintaining a lock in the data directory. Other key fixes include an issue with the alternate and more performant method of raster reprojection that comes with the GeoServer 2.1 series, as well as some fixes for WMS 1.3 support surrounding axis ordering issues. Check out the change log for the full list. Thanks to everyone who tested RC3 and helped us flush out these last few issues. You can continue to help us get to the official 2.1 release by downloading and trying out RC4. Be sure to report any issues in the bug tracker or on the mailing list. Thanks for using GeoServer!

    v2.0.3 and GeoServer 2.1-RC3 [04-03-11]

    This week has been a busy one for the GeoServer team with two releases coming out. The community is happy to announce the release of both 2.0.3 and 2.1-RC3. GeoServer 2.0.3 is a maintenance release for the 2.0.x branch and contains over 60 fixes and a few small new features. For those who have already upgraded to 2.1 there is nothing new but those still on 2.0.2 will find:

    • Ability to limit the amount of raster data read and delivered in each WCS request
    • A host of stabilization improvements in the WFS department, allowing GeoServer to widthstand higher WFS workloads
    • The new control flow extension allowing administrators to exert finer control over the number of parallel requests a GeoServer will handle, to ensure the server cannot be overloaded by malicious users or by a spike in traffic
    • Ability to read the GeoServer log file directly from the user interface, without the need to hunt it down in the data directory
    • Improvements to the ogr2ogr extension, allowing for the use of the famous ogr2ogr utility to extend the number of GeoServer WFS output formats
    • Finer control over shapefiles returned by the SHAPE-ZIP output format
    This release is likely the last of the 2.0.x series as the 2.1.0 release nears completion. The third release candidate of GeoServer 2.1 also brings a number of bug fixes and improvements including:
    • The querylayer module which is a powerful extension that allows for cross layer filtering
    • Support for GML3 encoding in Atom/RSS output formats
    • Raster to vector conversion processes for WPS
    • Inclusion of WMS decorations in PDF output
    And more. Check out the entire change log for more information. Thanks to everyone who have worked hard over the past few months adding features and fixing bugs, in order to make this release happen. As usual, we encourage you to download, try it out, and provide feedback on the users mailing list.  

    v2.1-RC1 [02-01-11]

    The GeoServer community is happy to announce that the first release candidate of GeoServer 2.1 is now available for download. The team has been busy working on some great new improvements and features since 2.1-beta3. First up is GeoWebCache integration, allowing clients to enjoy the benefits of tile caching through the regular GeoServer WMS endpoint. This enables GeoWebCache to transparently proxy for the GeoServer WMS without the need for a separate service endpoint. Taking advantage of the recently added disk-quota functionality, GeoWebCache now provides the ability to set limits on the amount of disk space used for storing tiles, allowing users to control and limit the size of the tile cache on disk. Big thanks to Gabriel Roldán for the great GeoWebCache improvements. This release also brings some improvements to RESTConfig, which is now shipped with GeoServer by default so users need no longer install it as a separate plugin. Improvements to the API include the file upload operation that now allows for uploading files into an existing data store. This addition allows users to upload a shapefile and have it converted automatically into a PostGIS database, publishing it as a PostGIS layer rather than as a Shapefile layer. Finally, the API also supports recursive DELETE operations, making it more convenient to remove resources that contain other resources like stores or workspaces. Thanks to David Winslow and Justin Deoliveira of OpenGeo for these improvements. Thanks to some great work from the folks at GeoSolutions, raster reprojection performance has improved significantly by using linear appoximations of transformation functions. This improvement was initially added in 2.1-beta3 but has continued to be improved for 2.1-RC1. Those interested should checkout this article that links to a white paper with the full technical details. Last but certainly not least, thanks to Andrea Aime for the addition of a Web Coverage Service request builder, a handy tool for graphically building WCS requests to test a coverage service. As clients for WCS have always been sparse, this tool goes a long way for making the service more usable. We are happy to report the contribution of yet another translation of the web admin interface—special thanks to Oscar Fonts for submitting a Catalan translation and to Geodata Sistemas for funding the work. Also worthy of thanks this round is Ivan Grcic who has submitted some excellent patches, including bug fixes for WMS layer functionality. Thanks Ivan! As always, a number of other bug fixes and improvements have made it into this release. Check out the change log for all new and noteworthy changes. Download and try 2.1-RC1 now. You can help us reach the final 2.1 release by reporting any bugs in the issue tracker and sending feedback to the mailing list. Thanks for supporting GeoServer!
