     7== Release Highlights==
     8
     9* Added Cesium
     10 * Cesium is a JavaScript library for creating 3D globes and 2D maps in a web browser without any plugins. It uses WebGL for hardware-accelerated graphics, and is cross-platform, cross-browser, and tuned for dynamic-data visualization.
     11
     12* Added IPython
     13 * IPython notebooks contain a list of input/output cells which can contain code, text, mathematics, plots, maps and other media. They are a bit like a spreadsheet in that each cell can contain code or a formula, and a bit like a web page in that authors can create structured text along with easily embedding rich and sophisticated media.
     14
     15* Updated to GRASS 7
     16 * GRASS 7 is a major upgrade, in the making since 2008, and offers new modules, tools, analysis capabilities, optimisations, user interface improvements, new Python interface, and SQLite database driver as default.
     17
     18* Updated to OpenLayers 3
     19 * OpenLayers 3 is a fundamental redesign of the OpenLayers web mapping library to use modern design patterns.
