Release Notes: The biggest improvement is that the connection pool code has been swapped out to be more Java EE compliant, allowing use of JNDI configurations, and defaulting to DBCP. This gives much more control over number of connections and revalidation of lost connections. This release also has better logging options, giving users more options with levels and where the output goes. Reprojection in WFS is working again. There are integrated demos for Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, and Virtual Earth. dateTimes are working again. There are numerous small bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release includes full WFS 1.1 support, GeoRSS as a new output format, many KML improvements, including superoverlays (with the ability to reference a remote TileCache instance) and templated output, and a new integrated Google maps demo. It also integrates Acegi, a great security subsystem. The other big piece is versioning support in the WFS, so one can do history, diffs, and rollbacks on edited geographic features. There are a number of small improvements as well, including syntax highlighting in SLD editing and an improved preview window for sample requests.
Release Notes: This is the first release of the new WFS 1.1 capabilities that is accessible to general users. Improvements that come with WFS 1.1 include sorting, GML 3.1.1 support, and reprojection in the WFS. The WFS 1.1 is completely CITE compliant, along with WFS 1.0, WCS 1.0 and WMS 1.1.1. There have also been some core improvements to make it easier for developers to create new services, including a new request dispatching system. Though the release has been marked as alpha, it's only because some of the 1.5 pieces have not been ported over. The majority of this release should be quite stable.
Release Notes: While the 0.2 release was a mere prototype, this work is the result of many optimizations at the geotools level, with scalable data reading for arcgrid, geotiff, gtopo30, image mosaics and pyramids, and georeferenced PNG, JPEG, and TIFFs.
Release Notes: This version has the same capabilities as the GeoServer 1.3-RC1, but with new support for coverages. It implements a large portion of the WCS specification. The ArcGrid, GeoTIFF, Image, and GRIB formats are supported. It features an easy-to-use, Web-based interface for data configuration and sharing through WCS and WMS.
