Today, we released OpenGeo Suite 3.0, which brings many new features and improvements to our flagship product, including the adoption of GeoServer 2.2, PostGIS 2.0, and GeoWebCache 1.3. These improvements significantly expand OpenGeo Suite capabilities, easing replacement of legacy software with a modern web-based open source stack.
In our next few blog posts, we’ll review some of what makes the OpenGeo Suite significant to its users, but for now here are highlights of what you’ll find with Suite 3.0:
- Server-side processing
- OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) provides a standard for inputs and outputs (requests and responses) for geospatial processing services such as polygon overlays, buffers, or custom processes.
- Rendering transformations make processing operations easier in browser-based visualizations by enabling just-in-time use of any WPS process as part of any layer’s style.
- PostGIS 2.0 brings vector and raster analysis into the database.
- GeoServer security now supports user groups as well as a number of new authentication mechanisms including LDAP, digest and X.509 certificate authentication.
- Virtual services allow GeoServer to support multi-tenancy, enabling a single GeoServer instance to publish multiple service endpoints.
- A new caching configuration interface in GeoServer includes the ability to define new grid sets, specify which layers to cache, seed or truncate the cache, and more.
- OGC Web Feature Service 2.0 (WFS) adds some interesting new capabilities, including paging, stored queries, and extended operators.
