This is a release candidate of GeoServer not intended for production use. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 16-RC1 and GeoWebCache 1.11-RC1.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback, bug reports and fixes. Here are some of the changes included in 2.11-RC1:
- Incompatibilities with GeoFence and Control-flow have been resolved
- Empty WFS Transactions (which perform no changes) no indicating everything has changed
- Improvements to WFS GetFeature support for 3D BBOX requests
- We have one known regression with the windows service installer (memory setting is incorrect)
- Please additional details see the release notes (2.11-RC1 | 2.11-beta )
Release Candidate Testing
The 2.11 release is expected in March, this release candidate is a “dry run” where we confirm new functionality is working as expected and double check the packaging and release process.
Please note that GeoServer 2.9 has reached its end-0f-life. If your organization has not yet upgraded please give us hand by evaluating 2.11-RC1 and providing feedback and your experiences for the development team. This is a win/win situation where your participation can both assist the GeoServer team and reduce your risk when upgrading.
Corrected default AnchorPoint for LabelPlacement
An issue with SLD 1.0 rendering has been fixed – when a LabelPlacement did not include a AnchorPoint we were using the wrong default!
- BEFORE: default anchor point was X=0.5 and Y=0.5 – which is at the middle height and middle length of the label text.
- AFTER: default anchor point was X=0.0 and Y=0.5 – which is at the middle height of the lefthand
side of the label text.
This is a long standing issue that was only just noticed in February. If you need to “restore” the incorrect behaviour please startup with -Dorg.geotools.renderer.style.legacyAnchorPoint=true system property.
With extensive improvements to startup performance and OGC requests for large installations we are looking forward to feedback from your experience testing.
