Quantum GIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System
that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows.

We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 2.0.1 ‘Dufour’. This
release contains new features and extends the programmatic interface over
QGIS the 1.x release series. Binary and source code packages are available
via the large download link on our home page: http://qgis.org

If there is not yet a package for your platform on the above page, please
check back regularly as packagers are still pushing out their work and they
will update the download page to reflect the new packages. Along with the
release of QGIS 2.0.1, the QGIS Community Team is hard at work on an
updated QGIS Users’ Guide version 2.0.1. The guide will be available in the
near future - we will post announcements when it is available.

We are also pleased to announce our new web site is now available at
http://qgis.org - and we thank Boundless (http://boundlessgeo.com/) for
sponsoring web developer time to make the new web site look beautiful, and
our web team for the awesome job they have done.
