The MetaSearch team announces the release of MetaSearch 0.1.0.

The 0.1.0 release marks the initial offering of a CSW client for QGIS 2, with significant features to enable plug and play interoperability with OGC CSW services.

- find and bind functionality allowing users to discover and add layers from WMS, WFS, WCS, or WMTS services dynamically to the map
- template-based service and record metadata view, allowing for custom templating of responses
- visual footprint of CSW results
- display of all metadata access links, allowing users to click/download data to add to QGIS
- spatial and aspatial querying of CSW services

Version 0.1.0 represents a significant engineering effort to bring CSW support for QGIS 2, make the codebase sustainable/extensible and easy for developers and documentation teams to make contributions.  Longer term plans include:

- supporting other catalog APIs (CKAN, etc.)
- making MetaSearch part of QGIS core
- transifex localization
- display thumbnail/browse images

We are looking for feedback and testers for the plugin.  Comments, bugs, features/enhancements are welcome (IRC, GitHub issue tracker, etc.).

The full list of enhancements and bug fixes is available at https://github.com/geopython/MetaSearch/issues?milestone=1&page=1&state=closed

The plugin is available from the QGIS Plugins Repository at http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/MetaSearch

Testers and developers are welcome.

The MetaSearch team.
