New features

Some noteworthy improvements since 1.6.0 are:

New autoconf tool

There is a new autoconf tool that is able to create MapProxy configurations based on existing WMS services. It reads WMS capabilities documents and creates sources and caches for all layers. It's a great way to get started with a new service.

See: http://mapproxy.org/docs/1.7.0/mapproxy_util_autoconfig.html

Improved error handling in mapproxy-seed

Some services you need to seed are not as robust as you like. We improved mapproxy-seed to be more resilient with unstable sources. It prints more useful error messages and retries to request images for longer: seeding will not abort if a source is down for a few hours.

Python 2.5

MapProxy 1.7.0 is the last release with support for Python 2.5.
