GEOS 3.3.0 is out:
This release introduces a fair amount of new C-API interfaces
and a brand new PHP binding. Full details in the NEWS file:
As with any release since 3.0.0 there is complete binary
compatibility with clients linked against the C-API.
These include, but are not limited to, PostGIS.
For a list of known clients: http://trac.osgeo.org/geos/wiki/Applications
(add yours, if not already listed!)
GEOS is a C++ port of the JTS Topology Suite.
This release targets version 1.12 of the library, but doesn't reach full
feature parity yet. Missing JTS functionalities:
- Densifier class
- 'match' package, for geometric similarity detection
- Triangulation API
- createSquircle and createSuperCircle in GeometricShapeFactory
- MinimumClearance class
- nearestNeighbours method to STRtree
- RandomPointsBuilder / RandomPointsInGridBuilder
If you'd like to sponsor development of any of the above items (or others)
for next feature release of GEOS (3.4.0) please drop me a note.
