Trac URL: http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/2427
Ticket #1088 enforced the requirement of a number of WMS request parameters in GetMap and GetFeatureInfo URLs in MapServer 5.0.

Enforcing the requirement for the STYLES parameter in MapServer 5.0 has led to issues with a couple of WMS clients, the main one being that GoogleEarth could no longer connect to MapServer WMS services (others such as JUMP were reported to have the same issue).

A long thread of discussions followed, including the development of RFC-35 as a possible solution, and the submission of a change request at OGC to make STYLES optional in the next revision of the spec since it really doesn't need to be required (as was agreed on the wms-dev list). In the end we figured that the best solution was to withdraw RFC-35 and simply revert this change in 5.0.1 and make the STYLES parameter optional again (as it was in v4.10).

This ticket is to document and track this change.

Fixed. STYLES made optional again in 30ae679 (r7156) (trunk) and 7c884f8 (r7157) (branch-5-0).

FYI I've updated http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/docs/faq/ogc-wms-getmap-required-parameters to reflect this change.
