included in the welcome documentation pack above).

This is a maintenance release focused on quality made conjunction with
GeoServer 2.1.2.

With stable releases there is always a larger pool of people making
contributions to thank. While it may not sound as exciting as listing
the latest cool new features; it is this work on Quality that makes
the GeoTools library a trusted success.
* Rudi Hochmeister was kind enough to sort out connection pool
handling for ArcSDE datastore.
* Serhat Gulcicek has worked on the number of domain types the PostGIS
DataStore can handle
* Gabriel Roldan has been working a bit of WFSDataStore and has the
honour of fixing the oldest bug of this release (GEOT-465 first
requested 2005).
* Gabriel has also been working the WMS client code allowing to better
handle custom attributes advertised in the server capabilities
* Jan De Moerloose has figured out a very tricky fix for the handling
of patch patterns across tile borders.
* Fernando González Cortés has fixed the handling of null shapefile records.
* Andrea has optimised the recode, categorise and interpolate
functions (which are heavily used when creating good custom styles)
And 75 more in the GeoTools 2.7.3 Release Notes

Finally thanks to GeoSolutions for putting this release out
