GDAL 2.0 released


On June 18, 2015, the new version 2.0 of the format library GDAL/OGR was released. It contains numerous improvements that are in particularly interesting for Swiss QGIS/FOSSGIS users:

  • Support for Curves (Circular Arcs) in OGR core
  • Better handling of "NOT NULL" constraints and default values
  • Improvements in the INTERLIS driver
  • Improvements in the GeoPackage driver
  • Improvements in the Postgis Driver
  • Improvements in the GeoTIFF driver
  • Improvements in the SQLite/Spatialite driver
  • Improvements in the CSV driver
  • Improvements in the FileGDB/OpenFileGDB driver
  • Improvements in the GeoJSON driver

Here are the detailed release notes.

QGIS 2.10 will most likely not be released with GDAL/OGR 2.0 - but if you compile it yourself you can already build QGIS with GDAL 2.0 support.
