  1. It was definitely time for me to upgrade! I'm using GeoTools to run a web service that uses geospatial data to implement geographic information on a wide scale of travel destinations. I find working with maps on the client-end much easier after the improvements made to the filter functions. The schema parsing is one of the things I love about the software. Just wanted to say thanks for another important GeoTools update, it helps my customers to travel around the world with precision guidance.
