The GeoServer team is happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.6.2. Download bundles are provided (zipwardmg and exe)  along with documentation and extensions.

GeoServer 2.6.2 is the next the stable release of GeoServer and is recommended for production deployment. Thanks to everyone taking part, submitting fixes and new functionality:

  • The issue with GZIP encoding breaking CSS download in some browsers has been fixed

  • Have the pre-generalized store use again the simplified geometries against the PostGIS store (regressed in 2.6.0)

  • Relative paths in SLD using a “file://image.png” syntax are supported again (regressed in 2.6.0)

  • Removing also layer groups and styles contained in the workspace when the workspace is deleted

  • Make WCS 2.0 / WCS EO more lenient when the workspace is not specified in requests, or when a single mosaic granule is requested in EO requests

  • Allow disabling “advanced projection handling” for raster data via a system variable (for the few cases in which it misbehaves, fixes are underway, please do report if you see issues)

  • A number of minor fixes to WCS capabilities and GetCoverage handling

  • Added icelandic language support in the INSPIRE plugin

  • Check the release notes for more details

  • This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 12.2
