We are pleased to announce the *new stable release of GRASS GIS 7.0.1*.

*What's new in a nutshell*

This release addresses some minor issues found in the first GRASS GIS 7.0.0
published earlier this year. The new release provides a series of stability
fixes in the
core system and the graphical user interface, PyGRASS improvements, some
enhancements, and a few language translations.

This release is the *32nd birthday release of GRASS GIS*.

*New in GRASS GIS 7*: Its new graphical user interface supports the user in
complex GIS operations as simple as possible. A new Python interface to the
C library <http://grass.osgeo.org/grass70/manuals/libpython/>
permits users to create new GRASS GIS-Python modules in a simple way while
obtaining powerful and fast modules. Furthermore, the libraries were
*significantly improvedfor speed and efficiency*, along with support for huge
files <http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Massive_data_analysis>. A
lot of effort has been invested
to standardize parameter and flag names. Finally, GRASS GIS 7 comes with a
of *new modules* to analyse raster and vector data, along with a full
temporal framework.

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (http://grass.osgeo.org/)
commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an Open Source Geographic Information
providing powerful raster, vector and geospatial processing capabilities in
a single integrated
software suite. GRASS GIS includes tools for spatial modeling,
visualization of raster and
vector data, management and analysis of geospatial data, and the processing
of satellite
and aerial imagery. It also provides the capability to produce
sophisticated presentation
graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS GIS has been translated into about twenty
and supports a huge array of data formats. It can be used either as a
stand-alone application
or as backend for other software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics.
It is distributed
freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).
GRASS GIS is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation
