OSGeo is pleased to announce that the MapServer project has graduated from the 
incubation process and is now a full fledged OSGeo project with Steve Lime 
appointed as project representative (Vice President, MapServer).

MapServer is a web map server for building spatially enabled web applications. 
  MapServer excels at rendering spatial data (maps, images, and vector data) 
for the web, supporting a wide variety of geospatial input formats, and web 
output formats.  MapServer supports a pure cgi mode, as well as developing 
server applications in languages such as Python, perl, Java and c#.


Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation, a 
responsible project governance model, code provenance and license verification 
and general good project operation. Graduating incubation is the OSGeo seal of 
approval for a project and gives potential users of the project added 
confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
