The MapServer team announces the release of MapServer version 5.6.3.

This release obsoletes 5.6.2 which was announced only two days ago. 
Unfortunately, two issues introduced in 5.6.2 made that release unusable 
for several use cases involving PostGIS and SDE layers, prompting us to 
issue a new release with those fixes.

The list of fixes since in 5.6.2 and 5.6.3 is included at the end of 
this message.

The source code is available at:


The binary distributions listed in the download page should be updated 
with the new release in the next few days.
