Description

The EPSG registry v9 is now available (although the page at http://www.epsg.org/EPSGDataset/WhatIsNew lists an incorrect release date).

This release includes some critical changes for Australian users.

Note: I'm willing to tackle these changes myself if I can get some pointers from the GDAL maintainers. Is there a script/documented process which was used to handle updates like https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/commit/3a316f2158090ba5123692e21f3dd46ce9279fe2 ?

Thanks Even! Are these database upgrades valid for backporting too?

Replying to ndawson:

I don't think we have ever backported EPSG upgrades in stable releases. As there are changes to existing codes, that could easily break downstream software (for example I had to change a expected result in GDAL autotest suite).
