Subject: [GeoNode-users] GeoNode 2.8.0 is out!

Dear all,

GeoNode release 2.8.0 is out!

Installing from apt on Ubuntu 16.04

In order to test it through APT, on a clean Ubuntu 16.04 instance run:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:geonode/testing
sudo apt update -y
sudo apt upgrade -y
sudo apt install geonode

Few notes on finalizing the setup (this will be improved on next release)

1) Update your default map crs to 3857

  sudo nano /etc/geonode/local_settings.py


    DEFAULT_LAYER_FORMAT = "image/png8"

  sudo service apache2 restart

2) Restart Tomcat in order to allow GeoServer to reload the configuration

  sudo service apache tomcat8 restart

Setting up your custom project

Please follow instructions from


Upgrading from 2.6.x release

If you would like to update from a 2.6.x development version, please take a look at the following document (still not definitive)


Other type of setup / installer

Docker and Windows installers won't be ready by the announcement of the official release.
There are still many issues with those two packages, preventing us to publish stable versions of them.
