GeoServer 2.9-RC1 Released!
The GeoServer team is pleased to announce GeoServer 2.9-RC1. Downloads are available (zip, war, dmg and exe) along with docs and extensions.
This release is made by Torben Barsballe (Boundless) in conjunction with GeoWebCache 1.9-RC1 and GeoTools 15-RC1.
This is a release candidate for final testing before we release 2.9.0.
This release requires Java 8 and is compatible with Oracle JDK and OpenJDK
GeoServer now requires Servlet 3 (so Tomcat 7 or newer if you are doing a WAR install)
Update to Spring 4 and JAI-EXT to 1.0.9
For more information, check the 2.9-beta, 2.9-beta2, and 2.9-M0 release notes.
Fixes since beta:
Naming geoserver layer differently from underlying postgis table causes aggregates to be omitted in SQL queries supporting time dimension in GetCapabilities and related operations.
Web interface does not reflect workspace specific WPS enabled/disabled properly
Enabling WPS for a workspace doesn’t appear on the GUI after reload
Restricting security on layers breaks aggregate visitor optimizations in JDBC stores
Stacktrace when modifying the configuration of a WMS Cascade layer
Update jetty version used by windows installer service wrapper
PDF generation can contain invalid polygons whose fill bleeds out in the whole map
For more information see 2.9-RC1 release notes.
We would like to thank the sponsors of the Wicket 7 upgrade sprint: OSGeo, Boundless, Vivid Solutions, How 2 Map, San Jose Water Company, Transient and Geobeyond (with in-kind sponsors GeoSolutions, CCRi, Astun Technology and Voyager).

GeoServer Community modules provide an area for ideas and experimentation. Community highlights for this release:
- Community YSLD: The YSLD styling language provides a more concise alternative to SLD, while still sharing the same structure.
Community modules should be considered a work-in-progress and are subject to quality assurance, documentation IP checks and a maintainer before being considered ready for release.
