<p>GRASS 5.0.3 fixes only major bugs.  There are no further scheduled releases
in the 5.0.x series.  Exceptions might be made for critical bug fixes.

<p>The next planned stable release is 5.4.0.  The corresponding development 
series 5.3.x features substantial improvements in projection capabilities, 
visualization ("nviz"), and has several new modules.

<p>Major changes to the vector engine and attribute management system have
been implemented in the 5.7.x line, which will become the next major production
series as 5.8.x.

<p>We are always looking for both testers and developers to help us maintain
and accelerate this development cycle.
