  • Fixes for WFS 2.0 joins

  • Better memory management when HTTP gzip-ping large amounts of GML/CSV/JSON data

  • Multidimensional WCS 2.0 outputs (NetCDF downloads) now support subsetting in CRS other than WGS84

  • An option to disable JAI native warp, which can cause some instability when reprojecting certain raster data sets

  • Some improvements in the GeoPackage outputs (still a community module, available via nightly builds)

  • Check the release notes for more details

  • This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 12.1
