Known issues:

GeoServer Enterprise Standard

New features:

  • Revise generated filenames used when downloading features using your web browser. Previously gml, csv, shp, and jsoncontent would often be saved features.xml, features.csv, featuers.shp and features.json respectively.

    Now the filename defaults to the layer name, and can be overriden using format_option=filename:<file>. As an example json content can be saved export.json using format_option=filename:export .

    Reference: WFS output formats

Improvements:

  • PostgrSQL 42.2.19 drivers

  • GetMap service exceptions now include layer name

  • Log style name when failing to load a style from the data directory

  • Allow line wrapping in long layer names etc in GetLegendGraphics

  • Apple M1 hardware support

  • Allow base proxy configuration to accept parametrization.

    This requires -DALLOW_ENV_PARAMETRIZATION=true startup to enable.

Notes:
