What's new in GRASS 5.0.0pre4:
Why is 5.0.0 not yet released?
The developers want to ensure that 5.0.0 is a stable release. With the current GRASS development team the way GRASS is development has been changed significantly. It mostly relies on people willing to help. This 5.0.0pre4 release is a candidate for becoming the 5.0.0 release. It can only be made stable if it enjoys a lot of testing. Please give it a spin. Report bugs to the GRASS bugtracker. Don't hesitate to report a bug which you find in the new release.
In case you are interested to join the
developers team, and/or share algorithms or ideas with the GRASS community,
We hope you enjoy the ongoing development!
