EasyGIS version 0.2 released on November 26, 2009
The release introduced a kind of maturity into the geo-data indexing. Implementation of quadtree index was a big milestone of the release. The feature added ability to handle large data sets and significant performance boost. Some more features are also worthy of mention: simple feature editor, distance measure tool, REST URI in UI and much more.

EasyGIS version 0.1 released on June 08, 2009
The EasyGIS team is pleased to present the first public release of open source Web 2.0 GIS. The version 0.1 presents a number of Core Features that allow you to share and publish geo localized data sets on the Web. The EasyGIS 0.1 introduces a simple Web user interface for integration with external data and service providers to prepare so-called GIS mashups. Builtin support for Google Maps and OpenStreetMap serves as a good basement for thematic mapping. All system services are exposed via RESTful API. With the REST Web resources, external clients can leverage the search and map rendering functionality embedding the resources into external applications and sites.
The page contains forward looking statements based on current plans and is subject to change.
The next version 0.3 scheduled for March 2010 will bring up geo-specific searches, geo-tagging, special geo-widgets suitable for business cartography. Additionaly more efforts will be put to support different geo formats and big data sets (related not only to ingestion, but to maps rendering services too). And of course documentation issue: detailed definitions of available REST Web resources; integration with other systems; extensions to EasyGIS dashboards, etc.
