GeoNetwork opensource v2.4.0 Release Candidate 0

Big news :-) You can start testing v2.4.0 Release Candidate 0. The release still needs small updates and bug fixes, but has a lot of new features that I think are unmatched in other geospatial catalog software!

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=72096&package_id=172443

(Make sure you pick the 2.4.0 RC0 release :-) )

Download at this stage is only the multiplatform version. To start the installer you normally only need to double click on the file. If that doesn't work, make sure you have Java 1.5 or higher installer. If you have that, you can also issue the following command from a terminal (DOS) window: java -jar geonetwork-install-2.4.0-RC0.jar... read more

GeoNetwork opensource v2.0.0 for Desktop and Server released

The final releases of GeoNetwork & InterMap opensource version 2.0.0 for Desktop and Server installations are available!

The functionality of both versions is the same however.

More information and downloads can be found on the GeoNetwork community website at http://geonetwork.sourceforge.net . Check out the Software center and the Documentation center.... read more

The last RC is out

Hi all,

the last geonetwork release candidate is out. We decided to release another RC for several reasons:

- RC1 had a configuration bug that prevented it from starting up correctly. This was very annoying for users not deeply involved into the project and this had to be fixed quickly.

- We need some more time to test the intermap integration.

Anyway, the final release is scheduled for the next week and this RC2 will be very little different from that.... read more

- possibility to turn a metadata into a template and viceversa.

- "last results" button... read more

GeoNetwork 2 Beta4 available

Hi all,

this new beta fixes only a bug with groups that prevented new metadata from being shown making the beta unusable. There are a few other fixes (see docs/changes.txt for more info).

Cheers,

GeoNetwork Beta2 available

Hi all,

the second beta of GeoNetwork is finally out. There are many improvements over the previous one as like as new bugs. The main purpose of this beta is to allow a deep betatesting of the new features. We are working hard to fix the known bugs and to add the more requested features. A new beta will be probably out at the end of September. The beta3 will be probably the last beta before the final release.... read more

GeoNetwork 2 Beta1 available

Hi everybody,

the first official beta of version 2 is now available. The major differences respect to the previous internal releases are:

- The installer now allows to install Jetty (this avoids the use of Tomcat but the working scripts work only under linux. Windows script must be fixed).

- Now it is not necessary to startup/shutdown the internal McKoi database: it is done automatically.

- The harvesting procedure is finished. To make it working you have to change the configuration file config.xml to add a schedule. Checkout that file from the CVS to have a configuration example. More docs will follow.... read more

Announcement of GeoNetwork v2.0

A version 2 of GeoNetwork is currently under development through a collaboration of FAO-UN with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). The release of this version is foreseen for December 2004. A beta version will be released soon.

So, what's new? The list is fairly large, but probably the most important things are:
- Support for metadata based on XML-schema fromatted standard. This allows GeoNetwork to validate metadata entries using a schema like the upcoming ISO19139 Implementation schema for ISO19115.
- Support for multiple metadata standards.
- New search engine based on Lucene. Searches are performed from secundary memory instead of primary to allow for large quantities of metadata (version 1.2 is limited to the available RAM and reasonable startup time of the system, practically to some 10.000 records).
- Multiple GeoNetwork websites on the same web server.
- Improved web based metadata editor.
- SOAP interface on web services.
- Easier language customization.
- More straight forward application configuration.
- Improved installer with the option to automatically install GeoNetwork using another JDBC database system instead of the default McKoi embedded DB (o.a. Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSQL).
- Others.
