Beta Testing

The GeoServer Team has been hard at work to bring you this beta release.

Here is our priorities for testing:

   - Updated GeoServer Style Editor
   
<http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/styling/webadmin/index.html#style-editor>
   - Module Status
   
<http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/rest/api/manifests.html#about-status-format>
   REST endpoint
   - CSS Extension – Nested rule
   <http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/styling/css/nested.html>
and rendering
   transform
   <http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/styling/css/transformation.html>
   support

We one crititcal known issues to keep in mind when testing:

   - GEOS-7750 <https://osgeo-org.atlassian.net/browse/GEOS-7750> – The WMS
   and LegendSample beans used in GeoServerTileLayer may provoke a cyclic
   dependency when Spring beans are loaded. As a consequence *tiled layers
   may not be loaded and are deleted* by GWC integration. Please back up
   your data and configuration before testing the GeoServer 2.10-beta with
   data you care about.

Highlights from the release notes:

   - Add CSS nested rule support
   - Add CSS rendering transform support
   - Add WMTS multi dimensional community module
   - Add WCS 2.0 Demo Requests
   - OL3 Preview in tiled mode supports map wrapping
   - Make JDBCStore compatible with HazelCast Clustering
   - Changes to WMS GetFeatureInfo for coverages:
      - Band names now presented in responses as NCNames for all
      info_formats (spaces and leading digits replaced with underscores)
      - Support for continuous map wrapping for latitude/longitude
      projections
      - Support for coverages with native latitude/longitude coordinates
      and longitudes > 180 degrees East

Also, looking at the GeoTools 16-M0 release notes, we have:

   - Support Azimuthal Equidistant projection
   - Implement Vladimir’s Polygon label point algorithim
   - GeoPackage can write to boolean fields

Security Considerations

This release includes several security enhancements (which are also
included in the recent GeoServer 2.8.5
<http://blog.geoserver.org/2016/08/12/geoserver-2-8-5-released/> and 2.9.1
<http://blog.geoserver.org/2016/08/05/geoserver-2-9-1-released/> releases

   - Although we have not been able to reproduce from GeoServer, a remote
   execution vulnerability has been reported against both the Restlet  and the
   Apache Commons BeanUtils libraries we use. We have patched our use of these
   libraries as a preventative measure. We would like to thank Kevin Smith for
   doing the bulk of the work, and Andrea Aime for providing a patched
   BeanUtils library addressing these vulnerabilities.
   - Layer security restrictions in CHALLENGE mode were not being correctly
   applied by embedded GeoWebCache. Thanks to Nick Muerdter for his
   responsible report of this vulnerability and for submitting a fix (that
   included a unit test!)
   - Carl Schroedl reported a vulnerability at application startup when
   working with a data directory on a network file system, a new configuration
   option
   
<http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/datadirectory/setting.html#require-files-to-exist>
has
   been provided to check that the directory exists.  Thanks to Carl for
   following our responsible disclosure procedure, and to Ben Caradoc-Davies
   for implementing the new parameter.

If you wish to report a security vulnerability, please visit our website
for instructions on responsible reporting <http://geoserver.org/issues/>.
