*We are pleased to announce the second release candidate of the upcoming
GRASS GIS 7.0.1 version*
The GRASS Development Team released at their recent Community Sprint in
<http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GRASS_Community_Sprint_Como_2015> the last
release candidate of GRASS GIS 7.0.1RC2.
*What's new in a nutshell*
This upcoming stability release provides a series of stability fixes,
manual improvements and a few language translations. This second release
candidate provides *55 fixes and improvements* with respect to RC1. It is
expected that RC2 will be turned into the final release of GRASS GIS 7.0.1
after a short period of testing.
*About GRASS GIS 7*: Its new graphical user interface supports the user to
make 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
yet obtaining powerful and fast modules. Furthermore, the libraries
improved for 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 series of *new modules* to analyse raster
and vector data, along with a full temporal framework. For a detailed
overview, see the list of new features
<http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/Grass7/NewFeatures>. As a stable release
7.0 will enjoy *long-term support*.

*About GRASS GIS*
The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (http://grass.osgeo.org/)
<http://grass.osgeo.org/>, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an Open
Source Geographic Information System 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 languages 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
