GDAL 3.9.0 is released


On behalf of the GDAL/OGR development team and community, I am pleased to announce the release of GDAL/OGR 3.9.0. GDAL/OGR is a C++ geospatial data access library for raster and vector file formats, databases and web services. It includes bindings for several languages, and a variety of command line tools.

Best regards,

My software is free, but my time generally not.

The 3.9.0 release is a new feature release with the following highlights:

  • RFC 96: Deferred C++ plugin loading
  • RFC 97: OGRFeatureDefn, OGRFieldDefn and OGRGeomFieldDefn “sealing”
  • RFC 98: Build requirements for GDAL 3.9
  • RFC 99: Geometry coordinate precision
  • Add S104 (Water Level Information for Surface Navigation Product) and S111 (Surface Currents
    Product) raster read-only drivers (required libhdf5)
  • Add raster GTI (GDAL Raster Tile Index) driver to support catalogs with huge number of sources.
  • Add vector  MiraMonVector read/creation driver (#9688)
  • Deprecated ARG driver has been removed (#7920)
  • Bump of shared lib major version
