We are pleased to announce the release of MapProxy 1.7.0. It contains a lot of major and minor improvements.
The latest release is available at: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/MapProxy
To upgrade within your virtualenv:
$ pip install --upgrade --no-deps MapProxy
Updated documentation is available at: https://mapproxy.org/docs/1.7.0/
Some noteworthy improvements since 1.6.0 are:
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.
Some services you need to seed are not as robust as you like. We improved
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.
MapProxy 1.7.0 is the last release with support for Python 2.5.
