Improvements and Fixes
This release includes a number of improvements, including:
- New “clip” vendor option in WMS GetMap.
- The SLD generation service can now create classified styles with per class percentages of occupation.
- Various WMS cascading improvements, including:
- Options to configure min/max scale denominator for cascaded WMS layers, as well as to limit the cascading requests to the declared BBOX.
- Options to configure formats and styles used in cascading.
- GetLegendGraphic now works with external WMS layers too.
- The configuration UI got improved too, in particular:
- It’s possible to show dates of creation and last modification in the resource lists (layers, stores, and so on).
- Search filters in lists are now remembered when moving across pages.
- Data level security can be edited in a new dedicated tab at the single resource level (e.g., while in the layer page).
- Mass truncation requests added to GWC, and the tile layer page lists layers faster
- Monitoring can now skip post-processors, and can log the time needed to render each layer in a multi-layer request.
- WFS supports per workspace stored queries.
- The SQL Server now ships with the latest open source JDBC driver by Microsoft, no longer need to fetch it separately.
- The download process (community module) can now return image mosaic single granules in their native CRS, when requesting a single one out of a heterogeneous CRS mosaic.
- Layer level CQL filter is now respected by complex feature layers too.
Fixes included in this release:
- WMS legend decorations got some attention, improving their size management
- Improved support for map wrapping while using rendering transformations generating raster data (raster to raster or vector to raster ones)
- And various others!

For developers building from source, our community modules are a great place to collaborate on functionality and improvements.
- The templated JSON-LD output format, supporting both simple and complex features, has been backported to 2.16.x. We are grateful for the sponsorship of the French geological survey – BRGM and the French environmental information systems research center – INSIDE, which made its development possible.
