TileCache 1.2 Release

Christopher Schmidt-2
TileCache 1.2 has been released.

TileCache is an implementation of a WMS-C compliant server made
available under the BSD license by MetaCarta, and provides a
Python-based WMS/TMS/WorldWind server, with pluggable caching mechanisms
and rendering backends. In the simplest use case, TileCache requires only
write access to a disk, the ability to run Python CGI scripts, and a WMS
you want to be cached.

Changes since 1.1:
 * Add support for WorldWind style requests, courtesy of Emily Gouge,
   from Refractions.
 * Add support for Mapnik rendering.
 * Add support for rendering using metatiles: instead of rendering one
   tile at a time, render a 5x5 tileset, and then slice the tiles up.
   Good for vector layers, where labels crossing tile boundaries is useful.
   To turn on, use 'metaTile=yes' in layer definition. Requires
 * Added Service information caching to mod_python request handler.
 * Improved TMS metadata
 * Fix TileCache to work on Python 2.2
 * Fix TileCache to work on Windows. (With help from Tim Schaub)
