[gdal-dev] GDAL 2.4.0 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 2.4.0.  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 2.4.0 release is a new feature release with the following highlights:

 * New GDAL drivers:
   - BYN: read/write support for Natural Resources Canada's Geoid binary format
   - EEDAI: read-only driver for Google Earth Engine Data API
   - IGNFHeightASCIIGrid: read-only driver to read IGN-France height correction ASCII grids
   - NGW: NextGIS Web read-only driver
   - NTv1: read-only driver for NTv1 datum shift grids
 * New OGR drivers:
   - EEDA: read-only driver for Google Earth Engine Data API
   - GeoJSONSeq: read/creation support of new-line or record-separator separated GeoJSON features (#378)
   - NGW: NextGIS Web read-write driver
 * Improved drivers:
   - BAG: add read support for variable-resolution grids, and write support for single-resolution grids
   - GTiff driver: add Lerc and WebP codecs
   - PostgisRaster: add support for out-db rasters
   - RMF
   - MSSQLSpatial
 * RFC 72: Make GDAL Python autotest suite use pytest framework
 * Add /vsihdfs/ virtual file system handler for Hadoop File System (via libhdfs)
 * Add /vsiwebhdfs/ read-write virtual file system for Web Hadoop File System REST API
 * gdal_contour rewriting: speed optimizations and capability to compute polygon isosurfaces.
 * Remove PHP and Ruby bindings.
 * Continued code linting in C++, Python scripts, Shell scripts and autotest
