We are pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.18.2 with downloads ( war | bin ), documentation and extensions.

This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 24.2 and GeoWebCache 1.18.2. This is a stable release recommended for production systems.

Thanks to everyone who contributed, and Alessandro Parma, Andrea Aime (GeoSolutions) for making this release.

Improvements and Fixes

This release includes a number of fixes in core and extensions:

  • Improved GWC seeding scalability (also check GWC 1.18.2 release notes).
  • Fixed back-links generation during WPS asynchronous requests, when a proxy base URL is used.
  • Fixed a GeoFence server packaging issue.
  • A number of dependent libraries have been upgraded, including the PostgreSQL and MySQL JDBC drivers, HTTP components, Guava.

Community Updates

Things get really interesting when looking at functionality provided by community modules:

  • The new support for COGs based on ImageIO Ext landed in a community module, adding it adds support for COG in both the GeoTIFF reader and image mosaic. Support for harvesting COG granules is also added in the REST API.
  • A deadlock in JDBCConfig has been resolved, along with issues related to high load when GeoServer has just started up.
  • The WPS download “map” and “animation” processes sport improved legend support.
