This is milestone release of GeoServer made in conjunction with GeoTools 14-M0.
We have both new features and a number of key “under the hood” changes to GeoServer. This technology preview is made available for your evaluation and feedback and is not intended for production.
Highlights from the release notes:
JAI-Ext integration for geospatial specific image processing operations (github), adding direct support for NODATA in raster sources
Replacement of vecmath with EJML matrix library
Importer improvements, dalwarp/gdal_translate/gdaladdo transformations and ability to add a granule to a mosaic
Read/write PostGIS curve support
GetMap support for by layer interpolation methods
Stop shipping old Oracle JDBC driver
Pretty print option for style REST API
Allow environment variables to be used in freemarker template files
Also, looking at the GeoTools 14-M0 release notes, we have:
Significant increase in GML 3.X encoding speed
New projections supported: sinusoidal, gnomonic
New extshape://arrow with parameters controlling its proportions
Thanks to Jody (Boundless) for pulling this release together.
