  • increased mosaic flexibility, which can now be fed the set of tiles programmatically
  • mosaics can now handle tiles with different projections/resolutions
  • support for labels with mixed bidirectional layout
  • use a provided charset when parsing the DBF header (not just the contents)
  • native support for unique visitor in JDBC data stores
