A quick message for all those who have been asking - I have started the GeoServer 2.8 release process but have run into a snag. The repo.boundlessgeo.com maven repository has been slowed down due to increased network traffic. We are setting up a replacement (cloud hosted which will allow allow more developers to manage).
What I would like to ask is for developers to try it out by adding the following to maven settings.xml:
<mirrors> <mirror> <id>boundlessgeo</id> <name>Boundless Cloud Repository</name> <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/main</url> <mirrorOf>boundless</mirrorOf> </mirror> </mirrors>
Please try the above and report back to geoserver-devel, and we can cut over to the new repository tomorrow.
Thank you for your assistance, and please accept our apologies for the delay in releasing 2.8.0.
Update: We have now migrated to the new repository.
For developers using maven to depend on geoserver jars (for those running a custom geoserver build) please note that we have now migrated to the new repository.
The repository details have not changed:
<repository> <id>boundless</id> <name>Boundless Maven Repository</name> <url>http://repo.boundlessgeo.com/main/</url> </repository>
The exception is for projects (such as GeoWebCache, GeoFence, GeoScript) that deploy artifacts. We ask you to change your distributionManagement section to the following:
<distributionManagement> <repository> <id>boundless</id> <name>Boundless Release Repository</name> <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/release/</url> <uniqueVersion>false</uniqueVersion> </repository> <snapshotRepository> <id>boundless</id> <uniqueVersion>false</uniqueVersion> <name>Boundless Snapshot Repository</name> <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/snapshot/</url> </snapshotRepository> </distributionManagement>
Contact geoserver-devel if you have any questions.
