Release notes: Open GEE 5.3.6

New Features

In 5.3.6, a --secure option was added for geconfigureassetroot and geupgradeassetroot that removes world-writable permissions from special files. This helps Open GEE perform properly in strict security environments. --secure is disabled by default.

Supported Platforms

The Open GEE 5.3.6 release is supported on 64-bit versions of the following operating systems:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6.x and 7.x, including the most recent security patches
  • CentOS 6.x and 7.x
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Google Earth Enterprise 5.3.6 is compatible with Google Earth Enterprise Client (EC) version 7.1.5 and above.

To upgrade from Open GEE 5.2.0, do NOT uninstall it. We recommend that you upgrade Open GEE 5.2.0 by simply installing Open GEE 5.3.6. Installing Open GEE 5.3.6 on top of Open GEE 5.2.0 will ensure that your PostgreSQL databases are backed up and upgraded correctly to the new PostgreSQL version used by Open GEE 5.3.6.
