We are happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.11.3. Downloads are available (zipwardmg and exe) along with documentation and extensions.

GeoServer 2.11.3 is the first maintenance release of the GeoServer 2.11.x series recommended for production system. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 17.3.

Highlights of this release are featured below, for more information please see the release notes (2.11.3   2.11.2  2.11.1  2.11.0   2.11-RC1   2.11-beta ).

New Features and Improvements

  • KML has two new options to control polygon placemark placement, to force it within the current view, and to make sure it’s inside polygons regardless of the polygon shape

  • The layer preview allows filtering on raster layers such as mosaics and image pyramids (which can apply the filter on the underlying mosaic index)

Bug Fixes

  • Improvements on pre-build legend treatment in GetLegendGraphic, now works against a layer default style too, and for workspace specific styles

  • GDAL bindings jars restored in the build, making it easier to use the pre-built native support (as opposed to custom built ones, for those remember to remove them)

  • Raster rendering fixes: no more empty output when asking for highly oversampled rasters in WMS, make sure new image mosaic tiles are rendered even if outside the original bounds in image mosaic

  • GWC related improvemenets, seed links now working when running behind a proxy, and more strict checks for non cacheable requests over the WMS service endpoint (especially useful when using direct integration)

  • GeoServer now changes the SLD version number when uploading a SLD 1.1 overwriting a SLD 1.0 file using the REST API (especially useful for QGIS and GeoNode integrations). The UI was not affected by this issue.

  • And several more, check the release notes for full details
