This is the release of GeoServer of the 2.10 branch is now going into maintenance and is no longer recommended for new production system. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 16.3.
This release is made by Ian Turton from the Astun Technology team. We would like to thank these volunteers and everyone who contributed features, fixes and time during the release process.
This release addresses three security vulnerabilities:
Added a configurable delay during login, to mitigate a brute force attack.
Added a configurable parameter to control clickjacking attacks against the GeoServer UI.
Added an additional parameter for locking down password autocomplete in the GeoServer UI
Thanks to Andrea Aime and Devon Tucker for providing fixes to these issues.
These fixes are also included in the 2.11.1 release.
