The GeoGig team is pleased to announce the release of GeoGig 1.2.0!

This release has three major changes;

  • Support for GeoServer 2.12 (web API Refresh)
  • Improved performance for Replication - Clone/Fetch/Pull/Push
  • Numerous usability improvements to support the GeoGig-QGIS plugin

Support for GeoServer 2.12 (web API Refresh)

One of the big changes in GeoServer 2.12 was to replace Restlet with Spring MVC. This necessitated GeoGig to also replace Restlet with Spring MVC. We made the new web API exactly equivalent to the old web API, so all the requests and responses are exactly the same - web client applications should not need any changes. We also made some improvements to the API documentation - see http://geogig.org/docs/interaction/web-api.html.

GeoServer 2.12 offers lots of new features and improvements: http://blog.geoserver.org/2017/10/17/geoserver-2-12-0-released/

NOTE:
For GeoServer 2.12 and newer, you must use GeoGig version 1.2.0 or newer (scroll down to the Downloads section).
For GeoServer 2.11 and older, you must use GeoGig version 1.1.1.

Improved performance for Replication - Clone/Fetch/Pull

The last few releases focused on performance related to rendering/querying data inside GeoGig. For this release, we have concentrated on improving how changes are shared among people (replication) in support of collaborative editing workflows.. This means that Clone/Fetch/Pull/Push operations are noticeably faster - sometime several orders of magnitude faster!

Numerous usability improvements to support the GeoGig-QGIS plugin

This release supports the upcoming GeoGig-QGIS plugin, which gives a powerful and user-friendly GUI front end to GeoGig. We've made some improvements - bug fixes and performance increases - to make this plugin as useable as possible. The GeoGig-QGIS plugin will be released on Boundless Connect (https://connect.boundlessgeo.com/) early 2018.
