As a result of checking out revised Blogger - I turned up the following post that was still lurking in draft (I often write notes about what is cool in a release while I wait for the build / deploy / test cycle - and it took so long to get the GeoTools 8.0-M1 release out that I never returned to publish it).
Earlier this morning I got to announce the GeoTools 8.0-M1 release. Because this is a Milestone release you will notice a lot more activity than usual. By the time stable releases are made the party is over and the whole point is to change as little as possible).
So much of what has gone into this release deserves its own blog post. In keeping with the theme of this blog here are the documentation links where you can learn more:
- Core Feature List: added a GeoTools welcome page covering the core features of the library; earlier this was covered in the FAQ and OSGeo GeoTools page. This page is formatted so it can be contributed to the OSGeo Live project as an overview of the GeoTools library.
- Off to the wiki this time for the GeoTools component of the OSGeo annual report.
