Hi OSGeo Folks!

We are pleased to announce the 1.0.0 release of MapProxy.

MapProxy is a tile cache solution, but also offers many new and innovative
features like full support for any WMS clients.

MapProxy is actively developed and supported, it was released as Open Source
in March 2010 under the GNU AGPL License 3.0, runs on Unix/Linux and Windows
and is easy to install and to configure.

The updated documentation: http://mapproxy.org/docs/1.0.0/

MapProxy comes with an advanced seeding tool that allows you to create, update
and remove tiles for specific areas. You can use Shapefiles and other sources
to define the geometries of these areas. The seed tool is also multithreaded
and optimized to work with WMS services with large datasets. MapProxy also
handles "empty" tiles (e.g. blue ocean) to save disk space.

Complex WMS:
MapProxy supports nested layer groups and each layer or layer group can be
cached or cascaded. Cached layers can be 10-100 times faster. You can combine
layers from different servers and make opaque layers transparent. It also
supports GetLegendGraphics and GetFeatureInfo requests. Feature info responses
can be transformed with XSLT scripts. You can mix all WMS versions, image
formats and SRS: MapProxy will translate, convert and reproject on-the-fly if

There is also a new interface that allows the integration of fine-grained user
