GeoNetwork opensource v2.4.0 released

Jeroen Ticheler - GeoCat
Dear all,

We're proud to announce the release of GeoNetwork opensource 2.4.0.  
This is a major release for the project.

GeoNetwork opensource ( ) is a  
standards based geospatial catalog application that helps people and  
organizations to organize and publish their geospatial data through  
the web. It is currently used in numerous Spatial Data Infrastructure  
initiatives across the world.

Important improvements have been made to ease of use, advanced  
metadata editing, performance and interoperability making it one of  
the most advanced, if not the most advanced geospatial metadata  
catalog available on the market today.

The software provides an easy to use web interface to search  
geospatial data across multiple catalogs, combine distributed map  
services in the embedded map viewer, send annotated interactive maps  
to friends by email, publish geospatial data using the online metadata  
editing tools and optionally the embedded GeoServer map server.  
Administrators have the option to manage user and group accounts,  
configure the server through web based and desktop utilities and  
schedule metadata harvesting from other catalogs.

You will find support for a number of metadata formats (ISO19115/19119  
following ISO19139, FGDC and Dublin Core), a number of catalog  
interfaces (OGC-CSW2.0.2 ISO profile client and server, OAI-PMH client  
and server, GeoRSS server, GEO OpenSearch server, WebDAV harvesting,  
GeoNetwork to GeoNetwork harvesting support).

A single, platform independent installer allows to install and run the  
software on a PC or a server on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The  
installer can be downloaded as an executable Windows file or as a  
platform independent .jar installer. It creates a Start menu on  
Windows computers. Command line installations are also possible for  
remote installations. Please refer to chapter 6 of the manual for  
detailed installation instructions.

The GeoNetwork community has been expanding quickly over the last  
years. The current release has been possible because of all those that  
contributed to the project through code contributions, testing, bug  
reports and fixes as well as many suggestions.

GeoNetwork opensource is part of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation  
(OSGeo, software stack, providing software you  
can trust tobe free, open and sustainable. Voluntary support is  
provided through mailing lists, websites and online forums.
Several companies also provide commercial support to help  
organizations to implement, integrate and maintain the software. You  
can find them in the Service Provider directory on the OSGeo website.

Thanks and congratulations to the all community members!
