Hi all

We (the QGIS Team) are very pleased to simultaneously announce the 
releases of QGIS 1.0.2 (stable release) and QGIS 1.1.0 'Pan' (unstable 

Our 1.0.x 'stable' release series are part of our effort to provide a 
stable, unchanging, long term supported environment. Each minor release 
in our stable series contains only bug fixes and no new features. For a 
list of bugs that were closed in the 1.0.2 release, please see the 1.0.2 
release milestone.

Our 'unstable' release series are provided to offer users a chance to 
try out new features as they make their way into the code base. We will 
not support these releases over a long term and they are aimed more for 
those who value new features over stability.

Binary and source code packages are available at 

A visual changelog for the release is available here:


Along with the release of QGIS 1.1.0, the QGIS Community Team is also 
extremely pleased to announce the immediate availability of the QGIS 
Users' Guide version 1.1. The guide can be downloaded from 

QGIS is a completely volunteer driven project, and is the work of a 
dedicated team of developers, documenters and supporters. We extend our 
thanks and gratitude for the  many, many hours people have contributed 
to make this release happen.

If you would like to make a donation or sponsor our project, please 
visit http://www.qgis.org/en/sponsorship.html . QGIS is Free software 
and you are under no obligation to do so.


As an aside, many people on this list have written asking for an 
'offline' windows installer, which I have made now for these releases. 
It undoubtedly needs some testing still but I hope you find it useful 
and let me know if you encounter any problems with it. The downloads are 
around 89mb each for the stable and unstable releases.

Happy QGIS'ing!
