deegree updates

Hello everyone, it's been a while. Much has changed in deegree since.

From a project and community perspective, the new website would be the most obvious. We are also finally working on a proper documentation handbook for deegree 3, the latest work in progress can be found at

Aside from that, our new company has started out quite nicely, we were sometimes so busy we had no time to write blog posts. I know, a lousy excuse :-)

Let's see what else has changed in deegree. The layers/themes refactoring/rewriting has taken place, and is now in a usable state. In fact, it's now the preferred way of configuring your service content.

Speaking of services, there's also a new member of deegree's little service family, the WMTS. Which means we also have a couple of tile stores to provide data.

I plan to pick out a few of the new features and post about them, but of course you're free to play around with it yourself.

Last but not least, we will of course be attending the OSGeo Bolsena Code Sprint 2012 this year. We haven't finalized our plans yet, but I'll be sure to post updates on our activities here, so stay tuned!
