release represents the successful transition of the project to a six
month timed release
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Timed+Release) cycle.

This release contains mostly bug fixes since 9.0-RC1
(http://geotoolsnews.blogspot.it/2013/02/geotools-90-rc1-released.html).
Please see the change log
(http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10270&version=19068)
for more details.

Here is a summary of the major news in the 9.x series:
Feature Collection Clean up
(http://geotoolsnews.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/featurecollection-cleanup.html):
we have retired several methods from FeatureCollection that were only
applicable for in memory feature collections. A Quality Assurance
review was performed on all FeatureCollection implementations resulting
in a great improvement on consistency. Thanks to Jody Garnett and
Andrea Aime for this work. The Vector Grid
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Vector+grids) module has
graduated from the "unsupported" staging area and is now included as an
extension. Thanks to Micheal Bedward for championing this work. General
support for complex features has been factored out into the gt-complex
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Separate+general+complex+feature+classes+from+gt-app-schema)
module for reuse. FeatureCollection, FeatureIteartor and FeatureReader
are Java 7 ready with support for try-with-resource syntax
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Java+7+try-with-resource+compatibility).
Partial 3D data support
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Partial+3D+data+support) has
been added with direct support for PostGIS, Oracle, and Property
DataStore. Thanks to Andrea Aime for the initial implementation, with a
follow-up funded by NTLIS (http://www.nt.gov.au/ntlis/) for Oracle
support. Thanks to Niels Charlier for putting together
ReferenceEnvelope3D
(http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Support+for+three-dimensional+envelopes+and+bounding+box+filters)
allowing us to query three-dimensional datasets. WMS client support has
greatly improved with WMS 1.3.0 now enabled by default during version
negotiation. Thanks to LISAsoft and the OGC for supporting this work.
New OGC models have been added for WCS 2.0
(https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-4333) and OWS 2.0
(https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-4332) along with XML support
(https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-4376). Updated to use the latest
ImageIO-Ext 1.1.6 (https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-4370) and JTS
1.13 (https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-4348) releases


The GeoTools 9.0 series contains API changes. Developers are encouraged
