GeoServer 2.2.2 Released

The GeoServer team is happy to announce the release of GeoServer 2.2.2, now available for download.

This is the latest release of the stable 2.2 series and contains a number of good fixes and improvements including:

  • [GEOS-5157] - Can’t configure MediaType in INSPIRE extension

  • [GEOS-5376] - Line sizes with UOM in legend decoration are doubly scaled when using DPI

  • [GEOS-5377] - WMS GetFeatureInfo fails when post filter required

  • [GEOS-5388] - Confusing ‘Bad credentials forroot’ exception in verbose_logging mode when logged in as admin or root

  • [GEOS-5395] - Catalog reload breaks GWC integration, update sequence upgrade and namespace/workspace consistency

  • [GEOS-5402] - Subclasses of GeoServerPreAuthenticationFilter do not map local admin roles to global admin roles

  • [GEOS-5366] - Better heuristic for OWS Request filenames

A number of great fixes came in via community pull requests:

Special thanks to Carlo Cancellieri, Jared Erickson, and Andreas Hocevar for their contributions.

And last but not least we saw two new interesting community modules surface for this release:

Both are available as community nightly builds.

GeoServer Trainings

The GeoServer Community is pleased to announce a new section of the website devoted to Training. It’s yet another sign of the maturity of the GeoServer project, as there are an increasing number of options for people getting started with GeoServer or looking to advance their skills. Depending on interest we also hope to have regular blog posts about upcoming trainings.

At this time there is an Advanced GeoServer training put on by OpenGeo on November 19th, next monday. It will be conducted over the web, in a three hour interactive session, so anyone can join. The class will assume basic knowledge of GeoServer, focusing on new techniques to get more out of geospatial data served on the web. Topics include the REST configuration API, Web Processing Service, rendering transformations like heatmaps and barnes surface interpolation, SQL Views and more. Please join, as interest in early trainings will help more companies be able to put on more regular classes.

We’ll review the results in one week. Thanks!
