GRASS 6.3.0b adds features
The GRASS Development Team today unveiled GRASS GIS 6.3.0, a beta update to its popular geographic information system, adding hundreds of new module features, among other inclusions. The developers say that the version is merely the first step to a stable v6.4, and the impending v7.0. GRASS 6.3.0 introduces the wxPython user interface, the first change from the VAX 11/780 interface used since 1983. GRASS is open source, and is available from the project website.
GRASS 6.3.0 adds a number of new supported data formats and language translations, and is fully backwards compatible with previous v6.x distributions.
