    8181==== Major module changes ====
    8282
     83 * G72:d.barscale - new option to specify length and units, custom label possible (done within GSoC 2016)
     84 * G72:d.legend - added option to show background, show ticks, more control over labels, added title, possible to switch to logarithmic (done within GSoC 2016)
     85 * G72:d.northarrow - added rotation option, more symbols available (done within GSoC 2016)
     86 * G72:d.vect - Legend tab with number of legend-related options (icon_area to represent areas in legend, icon_line to represent lines in legend, legend_label for label to be displayed in legend, -l flag to do not show anything in the legend)
     87 * G72:d.vect.thematic - Legend tab with number of legend-related options (icon_area to represent areas in legend, icon_line to represent lines in legend, legend_title for heading of the section in the legend)
     88 * G72:g.extension - downloads, compiles and installs modules using simplified URLs to GitHub, GitLab and similar services, local directories, remote and local ZIP and TAR files and GRASS GIS Trac, does not require Subversion (`svn`) anymore for standard GRASS GIS addons (applies to Linux, Mac OS X and other systems with build environment), svnurl option renamed to url (svnurl can still be used)
    8389 * G72:r.in.lidar
    8490  * base_raster option which allows for the conversion to LAS file Z values to height above ground using an existing elevation raster. Additionally, with -d a base_raster is used in its native resolution to enable performing statistics on with coarse resolution while reducing the heights of point using the base_raster in its full resolution.
     
    9096  * point cloud decimation (skip, preserve) and subset import (offset, limit)
    9197  * vector mask to limit import to given areas (mask, mask_layer, -i for mask inversion)
    92  * G72:d.legend - added option to show background, show ticks, more control over labels, added title, possible to switch to logarithmic (done within GSoC 2016)
    93  * G72:d.barscale - new option to specify length and units, custom label possible (done within GSoC 2016)
    94  * G72:d.northarrow - added rotation option, more symbols available (done within GSoC 2016)
    95  * G72:d.vect - Legend tab with number of legend-related options (icon_area to represent areas in legend, icon_line to represent lines in legend, legend_label for label to be displayed in legend, -l flag to do not show anything in the legend)
    96  * G72:d.vect.thematic - Legend tab with number of legend-related options (icon_area to represent areas in legend, icon_line to represent lines in legend, legend_title for heading of the section in the legend)
    97  * G72:g.extension - downloads, compiles and installs modules using simplified URLs to GitHub, GitLab and similar services, local directories, remote and local ZIP and TAR files and GRASS GIS Trac, does not require Subversion (`svn`) anymore for standard GRASS GIS addons (applies to Linux, Mac OS X and other systems with build environment), svnurl option renamed to url (svnurl can still be used)
    9898
    9999All display modules for vector maps, namely G72:d.vect and G72:d.vect.thematic, now produce a legend file with instructions for G72:d.legend.vect if `GRASS_LEGEND_FILE` environmental variable is specified (applied in GUI in the background, can be used directly in the command line or scripts).
