GRASS 7 Release Planning

Already implemented

Planning & ongoing

Source code changes:


  • Use Sphinx for Python API (complete?) (done)
  • Documentation: update HTML manual pages to more recent technology (see examples by Vaclav Petras) and #151


  • NULL compression, make default ~and backport to 7.0 for compatibility~
  • RLE/DEFLATE/LZ4 compression: #2750: LZ4 when writing raster rows; better than double I/O bound r.mapcalc speed
  • r.mapcalc / r3.mapcalc: new variables to access current region dimensions in cells (nrows, ncols, ndepths) (r67664)

7.2.1 (to be backported)

  • lib/python/temporal: major differences to be checked TODO
  • i.atcorr: Sentinel-2A r70161 (Test feedback in ML needed first)
  • r.grow.distance: clean up after r68611: r69327
  • Storage type
  • unify keywords and method descriptions with (r68596): r68600
  • check for valid LAS reader as in r68982 + r70134
  • vector modules: Added layer specific database information to extended metadata flag: r69535
  • v.vol.rst: improve wording of warning (#3100): r69439
  • v.what.strds: add capabilities to use names also for temporal dataset with minutes and seconds granularity: r69331

7.2.2 (to be backported)
