Currently QGIS only supports WFS 1.0.0 for client reading. WFS 2.0 has some good features including paging, joins, and stored procedures. The 2.0 client should as a minimal implement:

  • SF-0 feature requests
  • Feature type joins (both spatial and attribute)
  • Paging
  • Serverside CountDefault option which advertises the maximum number of features supported in one request. Would resolve issue like #9450
  • StoredQueries

A few important considerations would need to be taken into account to ensure the implementation works over the current WFS 1.0:

  • Coordinate system axis order i.e EPSG::xxxx vs urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG::xxxx, geographic vs projected coordinates types.
  • Support for GML 3.X

  • Status changed from Open to Closed
  • Target version changed from Future Release - Nice to have to Version 2.16

I'm going to close that one as it is mostly implemented. Note: the only missing part is storedquery support. Would deserve its own ticket
