GeoServer 2.22.3 release is now available with downloads (bin, war, windows), along with docs and extensions.

This is a maintenance release of the GeoServer 2.22.x series, made in conjunction with GeoTools 28.3 and GeoWebCache 1.22.2.

Thanks to Daniele Romagnoli (GeoSolutions) for making this release.

Feature Type Description

Building on top of the ability to customize FeatureTypes GeoServer can now define a description for each attribute. This information is used in WFS DescribeFeatureType to provide a human readable name or description for the attributes being published.
