QGIS 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 2.12 'Lyon'. Lyon was the
host city to our developer meet up in April 2012.
This is another regular release following our four monthly schedule. It again
brings many nice new features to QGIS.
Please also note that we're constantly keeping our long term release QGIS 2.8
'Wien' in good shape to better suit more conservative production setups.
New Features in QGIS 2.12 'Lyon'
QGIS 2.12 includes many great new features, tweaks and enhancements to make the
most popular Free desktop GIS even more feature filled and useful. Visit the
visual changelog that highlights some of the new additions
Whenever new features are added to software they introduce the possibility of
new bugs - if you encounter any problems with this release, please file a
ticket on the QGIS Bug Tracker (http://hub.qgis.org).
The source code and binaries for Windows, Debian and Ubuntu are already
available via the large download link on our home page: http://qgis.org. More
packages will follow as soon as the package maintainers finish their work.
