GeoServer in InfoGEO magazine

GeoServer is featured in an article in InfoGEO magazine. Written by active community member Fernando Quadro, the article is a brief overview of GeoServer. There may not be anything new here for those who are already familiar with GeoServer, but it’s still great to see GeoServer in print.

This is a good time to remind everyone that GeoServer has mailing lists in Portuguese, along with Italian and Spanish. Moreover, with the switch to our new documentation system, we now have the ability to have GeoServer documentation in multiple languages. If you are interested in contributing, please let us know.

Printing module now available for GeoServer 1.7.x

I’ve ported the printing module, previously available only for GeoServer 2.0, to GeoServer 1.7.x. I’ve created a wiki page for those who want to check it out.

PS: This post marks the end of my time interning with OpenGeo this summer. I’m glad to have had this opportunity to work on GeoServer, and hope that my contributions to GeoServer will be useful to folks!

GeoServer HTTP Proxy

Are you developing JavaScript applications that interact with GeoServer, but having trouble with the Same Origin Policy? A prototype for a proxy built into GeoServer is coming to help you out with that. This proxy makes it possible to send HTTP requests to an arbitrary domain through GeoServer’s own domain.

More information and instructions are available on the wiki. You’ll need either a Nightly build, or the latest GeoServer beta in order to use this proxy. This proxy is newly in development, so be sure to provide feedback to the GeoServer mailing list with your experiences.

GeoServer 2.0-beta2 Released

The GeoServer community is happy to announce the second beta release of GeoServer 2.0, available for download. The developers have been working hard to get the new user interface up to the quality and functionality of the existing interface. This release of 2.0-beta2 brings us 74 issues closer to that goal.

The most noteworthy feature for 2.0-beta2 is the official inclusion of the app-schema extension. Most people probably know app-schema better as complex features, a feature GeoServer has been striving toward for the past three years. The extension gives GeoServer WFS the ability to support complex feature application schemas such as GeoSciML. Much thanks goes out to Ben Caradoc-Davies, Rini Angreani, and the rest of the AuScope* team for seeing this work through and actually making complex feature support a reality in GeoServer.

For those who missed the previous post about it, Ben and the folks from AuScope recently hosted a complex feature workshop in Perth, Australia, in which a number of the GeoServer developers were brought out. Special thanks for AuScope for hosting the event, which was a great success.

A special thanks also goes out to users who have been downloading the 2.0 alpha and beta releases, trying them out and reporting bugs. The more bug reports we get the faster we can get to the official 2.0 release. This should be the final beta release of 2.0 before it moves into release candidate phase, so stay tuned for RC1 coming soon.
