The GeoServer team is pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.8.4. Download bundles are provided (binwardmg and exe) along with documentation and extensions.

GeoServer 2.8.4 is the latest stable release of GeoServer and is recommended for production deployment. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 14.4. Thanks to all contributors. Fixes and new functionality include:

  • Security fix for a reflected XSS vulnerability

  • Fix for potential out of memory state when rendering lots of very small tiles

  • Fix for an embedded GeoFence issue that caused user settings to be lost after a restart

  • Improved ImageMosaic creation and update speed for databases with many tables

  • Monitoring extension fixes for RemoteUser logging and monitoring hibernate extension causing startup issues to GeoServer

  • CSS styling extension related fix: A bug in CSS to SLD conversion led in some cases to performance issues with the generated SLD

  • PDF printing related fixes to properly render SLD “shape://horline” symbol, prevent invalid polygon generation and avoid potential out of memory state or very large files when handling large outputs with dense hatch fills

  • And much more, see all the 24 tickets resolved in the release notes

Thanks to Alessandro Parma (GeoSolutions) and Andrea Aime (GeoSolutions) for this release.
