OK, Bernhard, thanks for the explanation. I read the Description of
GRASS 5.1 Milestones: Phase 1 and 2 and did not find any schedule for
such development releases of grass5.1/5.2. I understand that it is
sometimes difficult to estimate but from my point of view it is
important for planning of my own work.
But I appreciate very much all work that has been done so far. Future
GRASS looks very promising!
