     6GRASS 6.3.0 is not intended to be a stable release (ie with ongoing
     7support), it is a beta "development preview" release of what the 6.4
     8stable release will be like. It is more stable than a development source code snapshot but
     9less than an official stable release.

     11It is meant as a "technology preview" gift from the developers to interested power users and beta testers.
     12It is mostly bug-free and very usable for day-to-day work, but it is not as mature and well tested as 6.2.3, which remains the recommended platform for production users.

    518The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS, is a Geographic Information System (GIS) combining powerful raster, vector, and geospatial processing engines into a single integrated software suite. GRASS includes tools for spatial modeling, visualization of raster and vector data, management and analysis of geospatial data, and the processing of satellite and aerial imagery. It also provides the capability to produce sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps.
