GeoExt 0.6 Announcement

The GeoExt community is proud to announce the release of GeoExt 0.6, the second official GeoExt release.

This release closes 51 outstanding tickets, including 34 new features or enhancements and 17 bug fixes.

We invite you to try out GeoExt 0.6 in your applications. Please download [1], unzip it to the root of your GeoExt powered application, and include the following script tag in your html:

<script src="GeoExt/script/GeoExt.js"></script>

As always, the source is available via subversion [2]. Please report any issues you find with the release on our issue tracker [3].

The 0.6 release comes with a number of great new features, the full list of which can be found in the Release Notes [4]. Some of the highlights include:

  • Solid layer node and container enhancements and a new layer node type.
  • A feature selection model for synchronizing selected rows in a grid and features in a layer.
  • New data components: WFS capabilities reader & store; feature attributes reader & store; WMS DescribeLayer reader and store; and a Web Map Context reader.

You should be able to upgrade from GeoExt 0.5 without any issues. To take advantage of all the new features in this release, you'll need a nightly build of OpenLayers. See the release notes [4] for specific features that require more than OpenLayers 2.8.

We look forward to your feedback on this release.
