GeoTools 12.2 released

GeoTools 12.1 released

The GeoTools community is happy to announce the latest  GeoTools 12.2 download:
This release is also available from our maven repository. This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.6.2.

This is a release of the GeoTools 12 Stable series recommended for production systems. The release schedule now offers 6 months of stable releases followed by six months of maintenance releases.

A few highlights from the GeoTools 12.2-Release Notes:
  • A new process, FootprintExtractionProcess, uses the marching squares algorithm to extract the footprint of an image (the non black portion of it)
  • Allow disabling advanced projection handling support in grid covearge renderer
  • XML date parsing now allows some slightly off ISO standard dates too (as in, with the time non fully specified)
  • Minor fixes in SLD 1.1 parsing to support the Priority GeoTools extension in labelling
  • Some GeoPackage module fixes
  • Some improvements in reprojection handling, providing better results when reprojecting data towards north polar stereographic, or Lambert azimuthal equal area over polar areas
  • Improved robustness of the Decimator class against locations where the math transform return NaN values (improves map rendering in difficult areas while reprojecting)
  • A number of other fixes, check the release notes for full details
Thanks to Andrea (GeoSolutions) and Jody for this release (Boundless).
