GRASS GIS releases version 6.2.3
27 November 2007

GRASS 6.2.3 is a new stable release which fixes a number of bugs
discovered in the 6.2.2 source code. This release is solely for
stability purposes and adds minimal new features. Besides bug fixes
it also includes a number of new message translations and updates for
the help pages and projection database.

These improvements have been backported from the GRASS 6.3 development
branch where new development continues at a strong pace of approximately
one code commit every hour, including major work being done on an all
new cross-platform wxPython GUI and a native MS Windows port.

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) is a Geographic
Information System (GIS) used for spatial modeling, visualization of
both raster and vector data, geospatial data management and analysis,
processing of satellite and aerial imagery, and production of
sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS combines
powerful raster, vector, and geospatial processing engines into a
single integrated software package.

The GRASS GIS project is developed under the terms of the GNU General
Public License (the GPL) by volunteers the world over. GRASS differs
from many other GIS software packages used in the professional world
in that it is developed and distributed by users for users, mostly on
a volunteer basis, in the open, and is given away for free. Emphasis
is placed on interoperability and unlimited access to data as well as
on software flexibility and evolution rate. The source code is freely
available allowing for immediate customization, examination of the
underlying algorithms, addition of new features, and fast bug fixing.

GRASS is currently used around the world in academic and commercial
settings as well as by many governmental agencies and environmental
consulting companies.
