Developer’s Corner: ImageIO-Ext 1.1.3 Release is available

Dear all,
We would like to take the occasion to introduce the ImageI/O-Ext 1.1.3 release (which is now supported by GeoServer 2.1.x, 2.2.x and GeoTools 2.7.x and 8.x.

Various improvements have been implemented for the GDAL framework in order to enhance its speed and robustness:

  • Tested with GDAL 1.7.3 and 1.8.1 on all Linux32/linux64/win32/win64
  • More aggressive caching of GDAL Dataset resulting in more speed
  • Less synchronization around GDAL calls resulting in more scalability

Artifacts Released
Artifacts for Imageio-Ext have been deployed on the GeoSolutions maven repository, as well as on the OSGEO one.
