     2
     3The 2.0.3 release is a bug fix release.
     4
     5== Build ==
     6 * Windows: update mrsid driver build to find MrSID 9.5 dll
     7 * Unix: add support for ODBC autodetection with mingw64 (#6000)
     8 * Unix: When using external libjson, explictly link GDAL utilities (particularly gdalinfo that directly uses libjson) against it (#6440)
     9 * Compilation fix for gdalserver.c on OpenBSD (#6376)
     10
     11== Port ==
     12 * Export VSICreateCachedFile() as CPL_DLL so as to enable building JP2KAK as a plugin (https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/pull/126)
     13 * /vsizip/: use CP437 on Windows when ICONV support is available (#6410)
     14 * Fix CPLsscanf() to be conformant regarding how space/tab/... separators are handled, so as to fix OGR GMT to be able to read coordinates separated by tabulations (#6453)
     15
     16== GDAL algorithms ==
     17 * GDALWarpOperation::CreateKernelMask(): fix potential 32 bit integer overflow when using warp memory value > 2GB (#6448)
