GeoTools is a GIS toolkit that is used for OGC-based projects via GeoAPI interfaces. It includes two great SLD based renderers and tools for raster access and reprojection as well as plugins for Shapefile, ArcGrid, ArcSDE, Postgis, OracleSpatial, MySQL, and many more.

This release fixed problems where joining more than two tables resulted in mismatching attributes, virtual table metadata did not work for column aliases, additional headers needed correction, and the GeoJSON module could not parse geojson objects with null geometries. It also added support for graphics-margin vendor options for graphic fills, removed proprietary com.sun package classes, and upgraded jaitools to 1.3.1
