GeoTools 19.2 released

The GeoTools team is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 19.2:
This release is the current stable release and as such users and downstream projects should consider moving from older releases to this one.

This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.13.2 and GeoWebCache 1.13.2.

GeoTools is proud to be an OSGeo project, and would like to thank Jürgen Fische and the OSGeo System Administration Committee for their infrastructure support this release.

Highlights from our issue tracker release-notes:

Tasks and Improvements:
  • Image mosaic virtual native resolution read parameter,  to force mosaic using a user provided native resolution in place of the actual one
  • Image mosaic mask read parameter, to provide a custom mask for the mosaic output
  • Image mosaic support for multiple WKB sidecar files as granule footprints (one per overview)
  • HSQLDB (used in gt-epsg-hsql) upgraded to version 2.4.1, Batik upgraded to version 1.10, commons-io to 2.6
  • Speed up rendering with "Advanced Projection Handling" enabled on maps having axis flipping and lots of small geometries
Bug Fixes:
  • Allow usage of "env" function in RasterSymbolizer ChannelSelect
  • Labelling roads with U turns can cause the renderer to paint a self-overlapping label
  • Better compatibility with ESRI servers in the WMTS client
  • EPSG:40400 does not round-trip properly when writtend in WKT format (prevented mosaics of non georeferenced images to work)
