Hi African QGIS Users!
We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 1.3.0 'Mimas', the
next in our development release series.
Our 'development' 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 at people
who don't mind if the user interface changes from release to release. We
are dropping the term 'unstable' in favour of 'development' to label our
non-long term support releases since the 'unstable' moniker creates the
incorrect impression that these releases are more crash prone. In
reality the developer releases contain many bug fixes that should
improve stability over previous releases.
Binary and source code packages are available at
A visual changelog for the release is available here:
Along with the release of QGIS 1.3.0, the QGIS Community Team is hard at
work on an updated QGIS Users' Guide version 1.3. The guide will be
available in the near future - we will post announcements when it is
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.
