Introducing GeoServer Enterprise

Dear All,we are happy to announce the creation of the GeoServer Enterprise project which has been developed by GeoSolutions leveraging on the Community version of GeoServer to provide long term support releases. Superior Stability & Long Term Support ReleasesGeoServer has recently adopted a Time Boxed Release model that results in a new major release every six months (and a bug fix release of the current stable series every month).This is following closely the Release Early, Release Often  Open Source Mantra, and it's required to avoid piling up too many new features in major releases (past difficulties to release a new major were due to...

Developer’s Corner: High Performance JPEG Encoder for GeoServer

Dear all,We would like to talk about some work we did lately to add support in GeoServer for encoding JPEG GetMap responses using the libjpeg-turbo library.Citing its website the libjpeg-turbo library is a derivative of libjpeg that uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE2, NEON) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression on x86, x86-64, and ARM systems. On such systems, libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4x faster than the unmodified version of libjpeg, all else being equal. I guess it is pretty clear now why we wrote this extension!The work was done in a quite modular manner. We created an ImageIO Writer and Reader...
