Ticket #3215 (closed defect: fixed)
Bump up GEOS requirement to 3.0.0+?
|Reported by:||dmorissette||Owned by:||aboudreault|
|Component:||MapServer C Library||Version:||unspecified|
In MapServer 5.6, the minimum required GEOS version is 2.2.2 which is fairly old.
In ticket #2753, we added new MapScript? methods based on GEOSSimplify and GEOSTopologyPreserveSimplify which are only available in GEOS 3.0+. At the moment a configure test enables them only with GEOS >= 3.0.
Should we consider bumping the GEOS version requirement to 3.0+ for MapServer 6.0, or just leave those two methods optional as is done in 5.6?
