GeoTools 17.3 released

The GeoTools team is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 17.3:
This release is also available from our maven repository.

This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.11.3.

GeoTools 17.3  marks the switch of the 17.x series to maintenance mode (as 18.x takes the role of stable release) is a recommended upgrade for projects already using the 17.x series. This release comes with 15 assorted fixes and a couple of minor improvements:

  • Several improvements in image mosaic and raster rendering (in particular related to mosaics with mixed CRS, filtering and sorting, and direct modification of the mosaic index)
  • Avoid rendering empty outputs on raster data when the oversampling factor reaches very high values
  • Better mapping of dates in Oracle datastore, in particular, DATE is now mapped to java.sql.TimeStamp
  • Better toString for temporal filters (handy if you're debugging some code involving them)
  • Fixed an issue preventing to parse GeoJSON having a "crs" key among its properties
And more! For more information please see the release notes (17.3 | 17.2 | 17.1 | 17.0 | 17-RC1 | 17-beta).
