GRASS GIS 7.0.1 released

Markus Neteler
We are pleased to announce the new stable release of GRASS GIS 7.0.1.

What's new in a nutshell

This release addresses some minor issues found in the first GRASS GIS 7.0.0 release
published earlier this year. The new release provides a series of stability fixes in the
core system and the graphical user interface, PyGRASS improvements, some manual
enhancements, and a few language translations.

This release is the 32nd birthday release of GRASS GIS.

New in GRASS GIS 7: Its new graphical user interface supports the user in making
complex GIS operations as simple as possible. A new Python interface to the C library
permits users to create new GRASS GIS-Python modules in a simple way while yet
obtaining powerful and fast modules. Furthermore, the libraries were significantly improved
for speed and efficiency
, along with support for huge files. A lot of effort has been invested
to standardize parameter and flag names. Finally, GRASS GIS 7 comes with a series
of new modules to analyse raster and vector data, along with a full temporal framework.
For a detailed overview, see the list of new features.

As a stable release 7.0 enjoys long-term support.

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (,
commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an Open Source Geographic Information System
providing powerful raster, vector and geospatial processing capabilities in a single integrated
software suite. GRASS GIS 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. GRASS GIS has been translated into about twenty languages
and supports a huge array of data formats. It can be used either as a stand-alone application
or as backend for other software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics. It is distributed
freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).
GRASS GIS is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
