Dear all,

while the Backup & Restore stuff for GeoServer is moving towards the end of


I would like to propose here an update of the GeoServer version on GeoNode
master branch too.

GeoServer is currently at version 2.10 while GeoNode is still using the old
2.7 one.

Consider also that in few days we plan to start working on an heavy
refactoring of the Authorization & Authentication subsystem of

The new GeoServer versions not only have a lot of new features but also
bug-fixes, performance improvements and some heavy refactoring of the code
base which allows GeoServer to work much better and be quite versatile.

I guess we should start thinking to move at least at version 2.8.x of
GeoServer if not a newest one.

I volunteer to update the security plugins if the community agrees on the
version update.

Please let me know what are your thoughts about this topic.

Best Regards,
Alessio Fabiani.
