GeoTools 19.4 released

The GeoTools team is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 19.4:
This release is the last community sponsored maintenance release for the 19.x series and as such users and downstream projects should consider moving to the 20.x series.

This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.13.4 and GeoWebCache 1.13.4.

Highlights from our issue tracker release-notes:

Tasks and Improvements:
  • Relaxed FilterDOMParser behavior vs like expressions, allowing generic expressions instead of PropertyName
Bug Fixes:
  • Failing bound computation in Oracle store fixed
  • GeoPackage raster to use JAI tile cache in mosaic operations (with significant speedups if there is a reprojection operation following the read), and properly exposing number of overviews and resolutions available (used for example by GeoServer WCS download limits)
  • Better support for filter reprojection on complex feature stores
  • Corrected envelope reprojection error from mercator to other CRS when working over small areas (e.g., tens of meters wide)
See release notes for this and previous 19.x releases for more details (19.3 19.2 19.1 19.0 19-RC1 19-beta).
