Still in my geonews catching up process, here's the open source-related geonews not shared yet.
This batch mode edition is unusually long. It covers the past month and a bit more. Yes, that's way too much and I won't try to repeat the experience ;-) Here's what I considered pertinent enough to share with you. Exceptionally, in some cases I haven't gave attribution to the source of the news, thank you for your comprehension.

Here's recent geospatial open source software releases. All minor but welcomed updates.
With GEOS 3.2 released in 2009, it's nice to have GEOS 3.3.0 now released. This link also provide details on the JTS features missing in GEOS. Here's the full change list for GEOS 3.3.0. In short, in addition to the usual bug fixes, "this release introduces a fair amount of new C-API interfaces and a brand new PHP binding."
A reminder of what GEOS is: "GEOS (Geometry Engine - Open Source) is a C++ port of the Java Topology Suite (JTS). As such, it aims to contain the complete functionality of JTS in C++. This includes all the OpenGIS Simple Features for SQL spatial predicate functions and spatial operators, as well as specific JTS enhanced topology functions. GEOS is available under the terms of GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL)."
