Withing the Geomajas spatial application framework, we have released some some generally usable code as separate projects. These projects have no dependencies on other parts of Geomajas and can easily be reused. To facilitate the adoption, these projects are released using the Apache License v2.
The Geometry project contains a DTO class for representing a geometry and services for manipulating these geometries. These objects can be used in various environments, including GWT. They can also easily be serialized to and from JSON.
We wanted to give everyone a heads up on the current status and the near future for the Geomajas project. We have been working so hard these last couple of months that it seems we haven't provided proper updates on what's going on.
Time to rectify that situation. What it all comes down to, is that we are aiming for a 1.10.0 release for the backend and GWT face in januari 2012. This release will also feature a few new plugins, such as rasterization, and SLD support. It's mainly these 2 plugins that are the cause of the huge workload we had to endure lately.
This release contains various fixes. Most of the code was refactored for stability and speed. Association support is now fully in place. There is support for lazy feature conversion to alow lazy loading.
