This release includes a number of improvements. Notable improvements:

  • New option allow to tile cache WMS requests that align to gridsets, even if tiled=true is not present.
  • New process grouping features by attribute, and then selecting a single one out of the group, in particular, the feature with the min or max value of a given attribute. Can be used either as a rendering transformation or a stand-alone WPS process.
