We are happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.11.5. Downloads are available (zipwar, and exe) along with documentation and extensions (OSX installer is currently missing as we’re unable to generate a signed installed version due to security/infrastructure issues being discussed on geoserver-devel).

GeoServer 2.11.5 is the last maintenance release of the GeoServer 2.11.x series, so we recommend users to plan an upgrade to 2.12.x or to the upcoming 2.13.x series. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 17.5.
