Press release

*What's new in a nutshell*

This upcoming stability release provides a series of stability fixes and
manual improvements. This first  release candidate GRASS GIS 7.0.2
provides *190
fixes and improvements*.

*About GRASS GIS 7*: Its graphical user interface supports the user to make
complex GIS operations as simple as possible. The updated Python interface
to the C library <https://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
were *significantly
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

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
