<h2>GRASS GIS 6.0.2 released 22 December 2005</h2>

A bugfix release of <a href="http://grass.itc.it">GRASS GIS</a>
has been published today.

<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>. The new features of GRASS 6 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.

<h3>Platforms supported by GRASS:</h3>

<p>GNU/Linux, Sun Solaris (SPARC/Intel), Silicon Graphics Irix, 
Mac OS X/Darwin, Microsoft Windows with Cygwin, HP-UX, DEC-Alpha, AIX, BSD,
iPAQ/Linux and other UNIX compliant platforms (32/64bit).</p>
