    I see that “GeoServer 2.1-beta3 released (now with WMS 1.3)” has the ability to serve WMS 1.3! however when reading the GeoServer Features page (, it states that GeoServer is only complient to WMS “WMS 1.1.1, WFS (1.0 and 1.1, transactions and locking)”.

    Can you please advise if “GeoServer 2.1-RC2” does serve WMS 1.3? If so…… is it possible to chose the output? i.e, select WMS 1.1.1 rather than WMS 1.3? We have applications that accept them individually but not both.

    Can 2.1RC2 also output WMS 1.3? I see the latest beta version can but your webside indicated GeoServer can only output WMS 1.1.1 and earlier.

    Sorry to be a pain again….

    I have been researching into the options of OSGeo Servers and MapServer can alledgedly read native RPF formats (CIB, DTED, CADRG).

    Can anyone let me know if GeoServer can also read the file formats? Or is the ability not yet in the GDAL extensions?

    And i am also keen to know if anyone has been able to install GeoSerevr on a 64bit OS? preferably Server 2k8?

    With thanks

    Ciao Nathan,
    I would suggest to post this type of questions to the ml.
    Anyway, DTED is supported, CIB and CADRG, are not supported at this stage.

    As I said, use the ML if you want more details.
