GRASS GIS 7.0.0

What's new in a nutshell

GRASS GIS 7.0.0 startup screen

After many years of development the new stable major release GRASS GIS 7.0.0 is available. The graphical user interface based on wxPython (introduced in GRASS GIS 6.4) has been enriched with many new features in order to make complex GIS operations available as simple as possible. The old Tcl/Tk based GUI has been dropped. The developers have added important new functionality to the core system, among that the new Python interface to the C library. This new API permits users to create new GRASS GIS-Python modules in a simple way while yet obtaining powerful and fast modules. Furthermore, the vector library was significantly improved to make it faster and more efficient, along with support of huge files. This requires an easy to manage topology format update including a new spatial index. A lot of effort has been invested to standardize parameter and flag names. Finally, there are a series of new modules to analyse raster and vector data; some of the already existing modules were improved and made faster (some even 1000 x faster). For details see below.

For a detailed list, see also http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/Grass7/NewFeatures
