Server-side enhancements for OpenGeo Suite 3.0
The suite also includes PostGIS 2.0, a version of PostgreSQL enhanced to handle geodata; in 2.0 it includes support of raster data and raster/vector analysis in the database. The server also has an enhanced security subsystem with LDAP, digest and X.509 certificate authentication, support for multi-tenancy through virtual services and a user interface for configuring the GeoWebCache.
A workshop provides details of how the various open source projects used in the suite work together. OpenGeo Suite is produced by the geospatial division of the not-for-profit OpenPlans and employs developers working on PostGis, GeoServer and OpenLayers.
The suite is available as a limited Community Edition and as a licensed Enterprise Edition. The Community Edition is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (as RPM or Debian packages). All versions of the OpenGeo Suite are licensed under the GPLv2, with components under GPLv2, LGPL, BSD and GPLv3; a recent blog post details the licensing requirements.
