The GeoTools 2.3.0 release is available for download:

    * http://geotools.codehaus.org/2.3.0^

This release brings together a lot of great improvements made over the 
last year. The main focus of this release is improving the raster story 
for GeoTools. While plug-ins for a variety of rasters existed 
previously, all of them were memory constrained and not really suitable 
for real software. 2.3.0 brings very solid, scalable, fast support for 
ArcGrid, GeoTiff, GTOPO30, World Images and Image Mosaics and Pyramids. 
These are already in action in GeoServer 1.5.x 
<http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOS/GeoServer+1.5.0+beta1>, and will 
soon work their way in to uDig^ <http://udig.refractions.net>. In 
addition we've had:

    * GeoAPI filter interfaces aligned with Filter 1.1 specification
    * completed providence review
    * more relaxed PostGIS support, able to handle older varied
    * Scalar Vector Graphics "Marks" can be used as part of our SLD support
    * Improved plug-in visibility - visit our website to check on
      status, and discover what "unsupported" modules are waiting in the
    * Maven "archtype" to help you start off your next GeoTools project
    * Numerous small bug fixes and improvements.

We would like to extend our thanks to the following organizations, their 
work is appearing in a stable release for the first time.

      contributions appearing in this release
