On behalf of the GDAL/OGR development team and community, I am pleased to 
announce the release of GDAL/OGR 3.2.0.  GDAL/OGR is a C++ geospatial data 
access library for raster and vector file formats, databases and web services.  
It includes bindings for several languages, and a variety of command line 


The 3.2.0 release is a new feature release with the following highlights:

* New GDAL drivers:
   - [ESRIC](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/esric.html): ESRI bundle cache 
read-only driver (#2663)
   - [HEIF](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/heif.html): read-only driver for 
HEIF/HEIC file. Requires libheif
   - [OGCAPI](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/ogcapi.html): tiles/maps/
coverage raster/vector experimental driver
   - [TGA](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/tga.html): read/only driver to read 
TGA image file format
 * New OGR drivers:
   - [LVBAG](https://gdal.org/drivers/vector/lvbag.html): read-only support 
for Dutch LVBAG/Kadaster 2.0 vector format
 * New utilities:
   - [gdal_create](https://gdal.org/programs/gdal_create.htm): to create/
initialize a new raster file
 * Other improvements:
   - Multi-threaded overview computation (if GDAL_NUM_THREADS set)
   - COG driver: TILING_SCHEME creation option
   - OpenFileGDB driver: add support for using spatial indexes
   - BAG driver: multiple improvements
   - FITS driver: multiple improvements (MEF and binary table support)
   - NITF driver: support for SNIP TREs
   - OGRFieldDefn: support UNIQUE constraint
   - OGRFieldDefn: support a AlternativeName (alias) property (#2729)
   - Python bindings: move implementation of scripts (except gdal2tiles) in 
osgeo.utils package to be reusable
   - Faster GTIFF Deflate compression/decompression through libdeflate (if 
using internal libtiff or libtiff > 4.1.0)
 * Removed functionality:
   - API_PROXY mechanism: likely never used for real usage.
   - Removal of GDAL and OGR ArcSDE drivers
