GeoTools 16-RC Released

The GeoTools team is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 16-RC1:
This release is also available from our maven repository.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the code-freeze, monthly bug stomp, or directly making the release. This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.10-RC1.

As a release-candidate, 16-RC1 is not intended for production systems, however the API is stable and we invite everyone to try upgrading their applications, report any issues, and help out with the final round of testing and fixing:
  • The library now defaults to using PreventLocalEntityResolver with XML parsers for improved security. For more details (and how to disable this behavior) please see the GeoTools user guide.
  • The gt-wfs-ng client is taking over; please try it out with your Web Feature Services.
  • CSS now supports rendering transformations.
For more information please see the release notes (16-RC1 | M0 | beta).
