The GeoTools Project is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 2.1.0.
New to this release is support for DB2, Web Feature Server (WFS), Web
Map Server (WMS), and indexed Shapefiles.
GeoTools continues to support open standards. This release features the
adoption of the GeoAPI 2.0 coordinate reference system model. The
GeoTools library provides a client implementation for the Open
Geospatial Consortium's (OGC) Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map
Service (WMS). Additional ISO and OGC standards include Styled Layer
Descriptor (SLD), Filter Encoding, Grid Coverage Exchange, and TC211
The library represents a complete GIS software stack that allows
additional functionality through the use of plug-ins. GeoTools allows
you to work with your existing infrastructure of Shapefile, DB2,
PostGIS, ArcSDE, Oracle Spatial, MySQL.
This release features improved performance of LiteRenderer, Shapefile
(now indexable), and PostGIS.

The GeoTools community remains extremely active. Work continues on
catalog, metadata, and HSQL. Developers are invited to join the project
and participate in development.
This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 1.3.0-RC2 and the
upcoming release of uDig 1.0.1.
