Release Notes: This version features 3D multi-attributes, a multilayer vector library, a modified NVIZ, and a few database management tools. The 5.0.0 version is required to compile and run it.
Release Notes: This release is the first major change in functionality since GRASS 4 was released several years ago. Notable improvements include support for floating point and null values. Users can opt to use a new windowing interface based on Tcl/Tk on those platforms supporting X Windows. A successful series of beta and pre-releases over the last two years has shown the software sufficiently stable to justify a wider audience release in the view of developers and users alike.
Release Notes: The general focus of this release is stability and reliability. It features fixes or updates for 63 GIS modules, improved configuration (autoconf), optional shared libraries (GRASS libs) support, portability improvements (support for iPAQ/Linux), and fixes to the generic Windows display driver.
Release Notes: Fixes or updates for 36 GIS modules, improved configuration (autoconf), a new NVIZ help system, an improved XDRIVER, an optional 24-bit PNG-driver, portability improvments, a new generic Windows display driver, and improved module documentation (HTML and PDF).
Release Notes: Raster import through GDAL library and numerical stability improved. Optional hardware accelerated 3D openGL viewer (NVIZ) added.
Release Notes: This release adds floating point raster maps and G3D raster volume maps in zlib/FLATE compression (due to patent restrictions), various point calculations fixes, and a configure script which has been updated to detect more libraries.
Release Notes: This release fixes GRASS Startup issues on Tcl/Tk, prompting for use of zlib instead of LZW, and some configure problems.
Release Notes: This is the last beta release of version 5. More than 1700 changes, additions, and improvements have been done on the source code since GRASS 5.0 beta8 in July 2000.
Release Notes: GPL licensing, a ton of bug fixes, some code cleanup, more projections (a total of 121), and NVIZ tools for 3d visualisation.
Release Notes: Many bugfixes, NVIZ 2.2 (a visualization tool), and an Xdriver which supports 24 bit depth.
