[gdal-dev] GDAL 2.3.0 is released

Even Rouault-2

Hi,

 

On behalf of the GDAL/OGR development team and community, I am pleased to

announce the release of GDAL/OGR 2.3.0. GDAL/OGR is a C++ geospatial

data access library for raster and vector file formats, databases and

web services. It includes bindings for several languages, and a variety

of command line tools.

 

http://www.gdal.org/

 

The 2.3.0 release is a new feature release with the following highlights:

 

* New GDAL drivers:

- PDS4: read/write

- RDA: DigitalGlobe Raster Data Access (read-only)

* New OGR drivers:

- MVT: add read/write driver for Mapbox Vector Tile standalone files or tilesets

- ESRIJson and TopoJSON: read-only, splitted from existing code of the GeoJSON driver

- WFS3: *experimental* read-only driver

* RFC 68: Make C++11 a build requirement

https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/rfc68_cplusplus11

* RFC 70: Guess output format from extension of output filename,

if no explicit format passed to C++ or Python utilities

https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/rfc70_output_format_guess

* RFC 71: Move to GitHub for source code repository and issue tracker.

https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/rfc71_github_migration

* Significantly improved drivers:

- MBTiles (vector tiles support)

- DXF

- GRIB (GRIB2 write support)

- WCS (support WCS 2.0)

* Improvements in network-based /vsi handlers: /vsicurl, /vsis3, /vsigs. Add:

- /vsiaz for Microsoft Azure Blobs

- /vsioss for Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service

- /vsiswift/ for OpenStack Swift object storage

* Command line utilities: use Unicode main on Windows to avoid issues with non-ASCII characters (#7065)

* Update to EPSG v9.2 (#7125)

* Update data/esri_extra.wkt and add data/esri_epsg.wkt,

taken from https://github.com/Esri/projection-engine-db-doc (Apache v2 license) (#2163)

* Add support for PROJ.5 new API (requires proj 5.0.1 or later)

* More than 1000 fixes for issues/vulnerabilities found by OSS-Fuzz

* Remove raster OGDI driver (vector OGDI driver still there) (#7087)
