GeoServer 2.0.1 Released

With a large number of users upgrading to GeoServer 2.0, it’s no wonder we’ve had so many fixes and improvements make it into GeoServer 2.0.1, now available for download.

Possibly the most significant change since 2.0.0 has been the addition of the RESTful API to the security sub system. Previously, users were able to connect in a read-only capacity to otherwise secure services through RESTful GET requests. While this is a good fix for GeoServer, it does mean that users who were previously relying on anonymous read access to secure services must now authenticate before they can access them. More details are available for those who are interested.

Other changes include usability changes to the administration UI, an updated Windows installer that now contains service and console installation options, and over 100 other issues fixed.

We encourage you to download the latest version and take it for a spin and report any issues you encounter to the mailing list or bug tracker.

As always, we owe a debt of gratitude to all those that have contributed bug reports, fixes, patches and features. A special thanks goes out to LISAsoft for managing this release.
