Boundless (ex OpenGeo) released OpenGeo Suite 4.0 this week:
Boundless is proud to announce the release of OpenGeo Suite 4.0. This version reflects deep changes that have occurred in the platform, while still supporting the functionality that our customers rely on. This release brings many new features and improvements, including the following component upgrades: PostGIS 2.1, GeoServer 2.4, GeoWebCache 1.5, support for OpenLayers 3 and the inclusion of the OpenGeo Suite QGIS plugin.
Of course upgrades to the standard server components but now with desktop (QGIS) integration. Get a load of this:
Our new plugin for QGIS allows for seamless management and publishing of geographic information from this popular desktop tool to OpenGeo Suite — connect to PostGIS, GeoServer, and GeoWebCache right from your familiar desktop environment to manage your geospatial deployments.
Don’t care for the command line? Just fire up QGIS and work with the server data in everyone’s favorite desktop GIS client. Rip and replace was never easier and QGIS and OpenGeo Suite go together like chocolate and peanut butter (still a Halloween candy hangover around here)!
