The GRASS Development Team announces:

GRASS GIS 6.0.2 released 22 February 2006

A bugfix release of GRASS GIS has been published today.

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to
as GRASS GIS, is a Geographical Information System (GIS) used for data
management, image processing, graphics production, spatial modeling,
and visualization of raster, vector and sites data. It is open source
Free Software released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The
new features of GRASS 6 cover a new topological 2D/3D vector engine
and support for vector network analysis. Attributes are now managed in
an SQL-based DBMS. A new display manager has been implemented. The
NVIZ visualization tool was enhanced to display 3D vector data and
voxel volumes. Messages are partially translated (i18N) with support
for FreeType fonts, including multibyte Asian characters. New
LOCATIONs can be auto-generated by EPSG code number. GRASS is
integrated with GDAL/OGR libraries to support an extensive range of
raster and vector formats, including OGC-conformal Simple Features.

GRASS is founding member of the new Open Source Geospatial Foundation.

Platforms supported by GRASS:

GNU/Linux, Sun Solaris (SPARC/Intel), Silicon Graphics Irix, Mac OS
X/Darwin, Microsoft Windows with Cygwin, HP-UX, DEC-Alpha, AIX, BSD,
iPAQ/Linux and other UNIX compliant platforms (32/64bit).  Software
