 <p>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 <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html">GNU 
-General Public License (GPL)</a>.
+General Public License (GPL)</a>. The new features of GRASS 6.0.0 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.
