GeoNode 1.2

The GeoNode team is proud to announce the release of GeoNode 1.2. The new milestone is an iterative advance, with a number of new features and improvements. It is also the last release before 2.0, which is rapidly becoming feature complete and should move in to alpha releases soon.

This 1.2 release adds a number of new features such as:

  • comments and ratings on map and layers

  • social features, to 'like' on facebook and '+1' on google plus

  • new find/add layers widget for the map composer

  • inline legend for the map composer and layer/map pages

  • better Feature Info tool

  • use of MapQuest Open as the default base layer

And on the back office side:

  • upgrade to django 1.4

  • use of django-south for migrations

  • use of django-taggit for keywords handling

and more....

Although the upgrade process is safe against data loss, we strongly recommend doing a full backup of your data before performing an upgrade.

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
