The GeoServer team is happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.6.3. Download bundles are provided (zipwardmg and exe)  along with documentation and extensions.

GeoServer 2.6.3 is a maintenance release of GeoServer recommended for production deployment. Thanks to everyone taking part, submitting fixes and new functionality:

  • The WPS download community module is now available on the 2.6.x branch too

  • Some WPS fixes related to requests not including the response form

  • Fixed layer naming regression that prevented non XML valid names to be used for coverages (care on naming is still advised, different protocols have different requirements, check the ones you are using)

  • Some WFS 2.0 join related fixes

  • Speed up generation of JSON files when the native CRS is EPSG:900913

  • Avoid leaks of commons-httpclient pools (which in turn can lead to a native thread leak)

  • Check the release notes for more details

  • This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 12.3

Thanks to Andrea (GeoSolutions), Jody (Boundless) for this release
