About GeoTools 10.x Series

Summary of the new features for the GeoTools 10.x series:

* Structured grid coverage readers [7] allow raster data sources that
  publish composite data products to expose individual rasters (ie
  granules) for processing, while still providing a seamless experience
  for rendering. The mosaic and NetCDF modules are the first ones to
  implement these new interfaces. 
* Efficient support for multiple coverages in GridCoverageReader [8]
  provides ad-hoc access to raster formats that publish more that one
  data product. A image mosaic made of NetCDF granules and single file
  NetCDF sources are the first implementors of these new capabilities 
* A new implementation of Shapefile DataStore [9] (based on
  ContentDataStore superclass). This upgrade should be seamless for all
  users using DataStoreFactoryFinder. If you explicitly made use of the
  ShapefileDataStore or IndexedShapefileDataStore class please check
  the upgrade instructions. 
* The transform [10] module graduated to supported  status, providing a
  seamless way to rename, retype and hide SimpleFeatureSource
  attributes, as well as creating new ones based on OGC Expression
* Additional OGC modules for the WCS 2.0 and WCS 2.0 EO models as well
  as adding XML parsers and encoders

The 10.x series has a number of research and development activities
that may be of interest:

* NetCDF has been updated to take advantage of the new coverage API
  introduced above
* GeoPackage: a sample implementation of the geopackage spec that
  is currently being developed by the OGC

While exciting, this functionally is looking for volunteers and/or
funding to meet our quality assurance standards. If you are interested
please introduce yourself on geotools-devel [11] (or check out options
for commercial support [12]).
