QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System that
runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows.

We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 2.0.1 ‘Dufour’.
This release contains new features and extends the programmatic
interface over QGIS the 1.x release series. Binary and source code
packages are available via the large download link on our home page:

If there is not yet a package for your platform on the above page,
please check back regularly as packagers are still pushing out their
work and they will update the download page to reflect the new
packages. Along with the release of QGIS 2.0.1, the QGIS Community Team
is hard at work on an updated QGIS Users’ Guide version 2.0.1. The
guide will be available in the near future - we will post announcements
when it is available.

We are also pleased to announce our new web site is now available at

sponsoring web developer time to make the new web site look beautiful,
and our web team for the awesome job they have done.
