GRASS 7 Release Planning

Already implemented

Planning & ongoing

Source code changes:


  • Use Sphinx for Python API (complete?)
  • 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

7.0.3 (to be backported)

  • if not done in 7.0.2, then backport #2775 (Hangs when closing db drivers)
  • fix mySQL support: 3 tickets
  • Backport the testing framework. We want this also in relbranch70
    • wenzeslaus: The coverage is really low; far less than 10% (even less when you consider lib and gui). Wouldn't backporting just give a false feeling of safety?
  • winGRASS 64bit
  • r67069 from #2824 (g.gui.timeline throws exception when trying to display temporal dataset.)
  • testing and backport for #2744 (r.import latlong bug)
  • various encoding issues (#2827 and others listed there)

7.0.4 (to be backported)

  • r67306 Close wxGUI on GRASS CLI exit (#770) - experimental prototype

To be tested after RC1

  • wingrass: osgeo4w postinstall and preremove scripts
  • wingrass: osgeo4w menu
