Architectural Issues

GeoMesa has done significant work in this release to refactor the core indexing code, making it easier to extend and implement for new data stores. This effort was validated by adding a new Redis data store implementation.

GeoMesa still has a significant overlap with some other spatial indexing projects.

Security Issues

There have been no work on security issues related to this release.

Non-Code Aspects

Documentation has been updated and hosted on geomesa.org. Older documentation is still available corresponding to released versions. Tutorials and examples have been updated on github. Older versions are still available as git tags.
