GeoServer 1.7.6 Released

GeoServer 1.7.6 marks the seventh stable release of the 1.7 series.

As the development focus of the GeoServer team moves more towards the eventual release of 2.0, the 1.7 series is winding down.  This release focused mostly on bug squashing and general stability, with improvements implemented for the shapefile output format and Next Generation Oracle datastore.

In addition, a few highly coveted features were added for this release.  The ArcSDE datastore now supports connectivity to non-spatial tables as well as connection to a specified database version.  KML support has also been extended to include output of 3d lines.

The WMS rendering issue discussed in a previous post is also included in this release.

We encourage you to try it out a try and let us know how you like the latest and greatest.

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.

Original Article English translation (via Google Translate)

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.
