Dear OSGEO-Africa Readers

We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 1.4.0 'Enceladus',
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

Binary and source code packages are available at:


A visual changelog for the release is available here:


Along with the release of QGIS 1.4.0, the QGIS Community Team is hard
at work on an updated QGIS Users' Guide version 1.4. 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.

If you would like to make a donation or sponsor our project, please

and you are under no obligation to do so.

Happy QGIS'ing!
