What's New

The latest updates and information on how to install them are available for download from Latest Downloads.
Information on the upcoming release is available from Pending Release.

You should update to at least and run the “redline setcrs” command ASAP to update your existing bookmarks and saved redlines to include the CRS that was used when they were created. If you do not and you try and change the CRS used in a client in the future then the geometry in your existing bookmarks and saved redlines will be invalid. If you have multiple clients that use different CRS’s then contact Cohga for more information.

Note that if you run this command from the Admin UI console the command may take longer than the default timeout for the console and report that the command failed, but it probably did not and it’s just reporting the timeout. This has been updated in 2.6.6 to be clearer on what is happening.

Released 8 September 2022


  • Admin UI config fix

    • The config tool would timeout when loading the list of available config types

  • User not recorded when logging request information

    • System status information was showing up as “nouser” rather than the user that was responsible for the request

Released 12 August 2022


  • KML Export

    • Exporting redlines to KML was broken

Released 4 August 2022


  • Spatial data definition fix

    • URL parameters in spatial data definition would not display as links in the client

Released 2 August 2022


  • Admin UI fixes

    • The Admin UI console and data source tools would fail if working with a database connection that is configured via JNDI

Released 6 April 2022


  • Show splash button issue

    • The new show splash button might not work if it was placed in a menu.

Released 6 April 2022


  • Possible dead lock in logging

    • There’s a possibility that during startup the new logging implementation will have a thread dead lock and cause the server to not start properly. This has only been seen when running Weave in an IDE and only when connecting to ArcSDE, but the consequences are serious enough that this hotfix should be applied.

  • Double logging of events in support dump

    • The log information stored in the support dump would repeat each line.

Released 6 April 2022


  • Exposed index build and clear actions

    • Anyone can build and clear and index if they know the particular URL to access.

Released 6 April 2022


  • Spatial engine shutdown issue

    • During shutdown spatial engines were not being disposed of correctly. Note this doesn’t cause any problems, since the system is about to shutdown anyway, but it could generate some confusing log messages.

Released 1 April 2022


  • Legend issue when loading a bookmark

    • Sometimes the legend panel would not update to reflect the map content after loading a bookmark

Released 29 March 2022


  • Non-spatial edit form fix

    • Children of grouped parameters were being converted to list boxes because Weave was thinking they were cascaded parameters rather than group parameters.

Released 24 March 2022


  • Selection sizes are wrong for anonymous users on page reload

    • When an anonymous user reloads the client the selection size(s) for the entities will reflect whatever the selection count was the first time the page was loaded, so if they change the selections and reload the page the selection counts are incorrect.

Released 21 March 2022


  • Entity labelers not working

    • An update to the core entity bundle resulted in a mistake in the namespace for the labelling config, which caused none of the labelling configurations to be processed resulting in no custom labels when picking specific entities.

  • Nearmap update

    • There is a new Nearmap panel available to work around issues in the existing Nearmap panel

  • Geocode API update

    • The Geocode API now supports providing the centre of the client map to help improve search results (for Geocoding engines that support it)

    • The JSON Converter API now supports classes implementing the JSONString interface, allowing an object to provide its own JSON representation to the client

  • Update to caching settings

    • The weave.cache.default flag will now disable caching for data definitions as well as search results

  • Non-spatial editing update

    • Support for “calculating” a column value based on another table has been added to non-spatial editing, i.e. populate a column from a separate table

  • Admin UI console timeout

    • The default timeout for the Admin UI OSGi console was too short, sometimes giving the incorrect perception that the command did not work

  • PostGIS compatibility fix

    • The GeoTools 13.x PostGIS driver has been updated to fix compatibility issues with newer versions of PostGIS

  • EPSG:7899 support on client

    • A projection definition for VicGrid GDA2020 has been added to the client

  • Possible XSS fixed

    • A possible, but very unlikely, vector for an XSS issue we removed. An error response contained the id of the request that generated the error. While it’s not clear how or if this could be used as a vulnerability but we’re removing all instances of client request parameters being returned in responses to try and minimise any possibility of this being used

  • Client IP

    • If the server was behind a reverse proxy Weave might not guess the correct IP address of the client

    • A fix for the non-spatial editing has been applied to work around an issue with Oracle returning invalid metadata for decimal columns

  • Map alias

    • If multiple plugins were included in the map view the server would not process map aliases correctly

Released 31 March 2021


  • Client IP

    • If the server was behind a reverse proxy Weave might not guess the correct IP address of the client

  • Default style

    • The client would not be able to determine the default style to choose for a layer in some circumstances

Released 26 March 2021


  • Restore ToC functionality removed in 2.6.5

    • 2.6.5 changes exclusive groups so that it would turn on the first child if no items were checked initially, but the change was not being reflected in the map

  • XSS fix

    • An invalid request from the client included the request id in the response error, which theoretically could be a security issue (but isn’t)


Released 15 March 2021


  • Redline coordinate entry

    • Support tabs as a separator in the input text

  • Updated to login/logout

    • Login and logout handing has been updated to better support multiple authentication mechanisms

  • Updated non-spatial editing

    • You can now specify if an edit config has create, update and/or delete capabilities

  • Encryption key update

    • The private key used to encrypt items in Weave config files can be specified by an environment variable or system property, rather than just the private.key file

  • Data export API

    • A new API for exporting data has been implemented

  • GeoPackage as a data export format

    • Along with CSV, HTML and Excel, there is now a GeoPackage option for exporting data from a data grid

  • Tile cache update

    • You can now set the system property tile.cache.disable to true to disable caching of tiles fetched from external servers

  • WMS Legend generation config update

    • It's now possible to specify additional tokens that need to be included in the URL sent to a WMS server just for GetLegend requests. Previously you could only specify one set of tokens and they were sent on every request.

  • SAML Authentication

    • Support for authenticating using SAML has been added. This provides support for Microsoft AD FS and Azure AD amongst others.

  • New whoami request

    • You can open the URL /weave/whoami to get information about who the server thinks you are, which is useful to debug login, role and ACL related issues

  • Dynamic configuration variables

    • Variables in config files set by using the "set" instruction are now dynamic (i.e. their value can be changed when the config files are being processed). Previously the values were fixed, with the last value set when processing the config files, being the one that was used. You can set the system property "weave.config.variables.dynamic" to false to restore the previous static variable handling.

  • Updated Geometry Simplification API

    • An internal API used for simplifying geometry has been enhanced to provide more control over the simplification process

  • Geometry REST API update

    • The /geometry/transform/point endpoint has been updated to be more lenient with missing parameters and more strict with required parameters

  • Admin UI Spatial Engines Tool update

    • The tool now provides filtering for spatial engine layers based on their name

  • Data API update

    • The Java Data API now allows some formatting to be provided as functions, not just from a pre-defined set of options. This includes dates and times, URL's and boolean values.

  • EPSG update

    • The EPSG database has been updated to version 9.9, from 9.7

  • SQL Server spatial engine update

    • The SQL Server config now accepts a "URL" parameter, to allow specifying the full connection URL, rather than having the URL constructed from other config parameters

  • Third-party library updates

    • A number of third-party libraries have been updated to newer versions

  • Bookmark improvements when switching projections

    • The bookmarks are smarter about reprojecting redlines and extents when a bookmark is saved in one projection but loaded on a client in another projection.

  • User attributes in client config

    • It’s now possible to reference users attributes in a client config to customise a client for individual users

    • For example: <initial minx=”${user.extent.initial.minx}” miny=”${user.extent.initial.miny}” maxx=”${user.extent.initial.maxx}” maxy=”${user.extent.initial.maxy}” crs=”${user.extent.initial.crs}”/>

    • You need to create and configure user attributes separately (the example above will not work out of the box)

  • Buffer display update

    • The buffer polygons displayed on the client are "simplified" to reduce the number of points in the polygon. The default number of points is 1000. To change this you can set the system property weave.client.buffer.maxpoints to a larger (or smaller) value. Note, changing this property doesn't affect the buffer operation itself, just the polygon displayed to the user (since these polygons can contain 10's or 100's of thousands of points and can take a long time to download).

  • Jetty updated

    • Jetty has been updated to version 9.4.38

  • Java updated

    • Java has been updated to 1.8.0_282


  • Redline coordinate entry

  • WMS Map logging fix

    • Recording of map and layer timings has been added back after accidentally being removed in release 2.6.4

  • Buffer generation inconsistency fixed

    • Previously different code used different methods to generate buffers around geometry which would sometimes give inconsistent results. Now all code that generates a buffer uses the same code and settings.

  • Report generation issue

    • A missing map engine would sometimes stop a report from generating if it referenced the missing map engine

  • NTLM Authentication fix

    • Once a user has authenticated via NTLM they will not be required to authenticate again during the current session.

  • Null identifier fix

    • Updates have been put in place to handle records that use null as a key value

  • Runtime Property API fix

    • The internal API for getting system properties has been updated to better handle file-based URL's for file and path type properties. Recent updates to Java and Windows meant that these value were being handled differently between Windows and Linux.

  • Admin UI data explorer fix

    • The tool was returning the wrong number of records when paging

  • Admin UI spatial engine fix

    • The tool was failing with ArcGIS layers that were empty

  • PRJ file handling

    • Updates have been made to handle differences between OGC and Esri PRJ files when uploading spatial data.

  • Redline fix

    • Redlines created before 2.6.5 and did not record the projection of the stored coordinates which could cause issues if a client config changed the map projection or if a bookmark/redline created in a client with one map projection was opened in a client with a different map projection. This update a) includes the crs in any new redlines, and b) provides a “redline setcrs <crs>” osgi command to add the projection information to existing redlines.

  • Coordinate display panel

    • If the panel was visible at startup it wouldn’t update when the mouse was moved

  • Client support for EPSG:7899 projection

    • The client did not know about the GDA2020 VicGrid projection

    • Replacing a bookmark would not update the stored content

  • ToC panel fix

    • It was possible to turn off all layers in a group marked as exclusive when this should not have been possible

  • Buffer display fix

    • Sometimes the buffer displayed to the user, not the one used to perform the buffer operation itself, did not display correctly

Release 18 Feb 2021


  • ToC panel fix

    • It was possible to turn off all layers in a group marked as exclusive when it should not be

Released 17 Feb 2021


  • Bookmark update fix

    • Replacing a bookmark would not update the stored content

Released 15 Feb 2021


  • Fixed redline transform command

    • There was a problem when transforming saved bookmark that also included and extent

Released 11 Feb 2021


  • New redline commands

    • The new bookmark commands added in to help fix issues with pre- bookmarks have been replaced with the equivalent “redline” commands.

    • The newer version of the command works with all saved redlines, not just those saved as part of a bookmark as the bookmark version of the commands did.

Released 11 Feb 2021


  • New bookmark commands

    • New bookmark management commands have been added to allow you to retroactively set the CRS for redlines stored in bookmarks.

    • The new “bm setcrs <crs>” command should be run after you upgrade to (or 2.6.5) to update all existing bookmarks to include the CRS that was in use when the bookmarks were created.


  • Multi-select field fix

    • A multi-select field would not always display its initial values (if it was configured with an initial value)

  • Data export fix

    • When exporting data from a grid the name of the file was not always set correctly

  • Bookmark redline fix

    • Previously bookmarks did not store the CRS of the redlines and relied upon their coordinates being in the same projection as the map

Released 11 Feb 2021


  • Spatial upload projection issue

    • Fixed an issue where uploaded data would not project correctly if an included PRJ file was not understood by Weave

Released 29 Jan 2021


  • Map logging restored

    • The 2.6.4 update accidentally removed the map engine/layer logging from the Admin UI, it’s now been added back

  • Map export fix

    • Exporting a map was ignoring the "labels visible" flag for layers

  • Report map fix

    • Fixed an issue that could cause a report map to be out of sync with the clients' view

  • Spatial search fix

    • Fixed an issue that didn't always apply all the required filters

Released 20 Aug 2020


  • Missing CRS parameter in intersect requests

    • A crs parameter was missing when sending an intersect operation request to the server, so if the data is stored in a different projection the "highlight" geometry would not display on the client

  • Unnecessary errors in log

    • An unsupported request from the client was logged as an error when it should be a warning, and no information was recorded about what the request was

  • Startup performance issue

    • There was a problem that could result in delays when the server was starting up

  • Invalid metadata in an API bundle

    • An API related bundle included some incorrect metadata in the source relating to the version of Java it required. This shouldn't effect the server but required a bump in the version number to update the bundle.

Release 13 Aug 2020


  • Selection identify fix

    • If you try to export data from the selection identify tool and have no records selected then you would get no data, rather than all records

  • Id mapping fix

    • If a null id makes it into the system it can cause problems, this fix should ensure that null id's are no longer possible

  • Missing entries in config.ini file

    • The installer for 2.6.4 moved some bundles from optional extras to always being included, but did not add the config.ini entries to ensure those bundles were started. Updating from previous versions did not have this issue, just installing a clean 2.6.4 version.

Release 4 Aug 2020


  • ArcGIS Server certificate issue

    • Weave may complain about the certificates presented by ArcGIS Server.


Released 30 July 2020

To install it for an existing instance, re-run the 2.6.4 installer pointing it to the newly updated 2.6.4 instance and disable everything but the System Metrics component.

  • Help

    • The default help content is now provided as part of the installation.

    • Note this will not be installed when updating an existing instance, so as not to overwrite any customisations that may have been applied. To install it for an existing instance, re-run the 2.6.4 installer pointing it to the newly updated 2.6.4 instance and disable everything but the Help component.

  • Zip'n'ship

    • Supports exporting to GeoPackage

    • Data sets can be grouped into folders

  • Tiled map engines

    • Tiled map engines can now be configured for performance or quality when re-projecting the tiles and they can be configured to fetch multiple tiles in parallel.

  • Stitching dynamic map engine

    • If a back end map service only supports generating images up to a certain width and height (i.e. as with ArcGIS), you can now create a wrapper "stitching" map engine that can be configured with the maximum width and height that the back end map service supports. The stitching map engine will make multiple requests to the back end map service so that it only requests images of the size the map service supports and it will then stitch the images back together to make a single image of the originally requested size. This is particularly important for BIRT reports with large embedded map components. So now you can, for example, generate an A0 size report even if the map service in use only supports generating images of 1000 x 1000 pixels.

  • A new group parameters for reports

    • So you can group reports on the client

  • List-box/combo-box field issue

    • Some field functionality in 2.5.30 changed the way list-box and combo-boxes worked by default, this update fixes the fields so they work more like they did before 2.5.30.


Released 13 November 2019


  • ToC model parsing issue

    • When generating an id for a toc model group entry that does not have an id set the generation of the id required a map engine to be know which may not always be the case, this would result in the toc model not being available. This update resolves the requirement to have a mapengine specified and will generate the id without one.
