First off – sorry for the lack of talking on my end. I’ve been sitting/thinking more than usual which has led to a pile of things I want to talk about. This blog has always been good for an outlet and that will happen soon enough. In between the random essays I’ll dive back into my comfort zone of technology like today. The dust has now settled and you should be seeing a new QGIS version(s) out and about.
QGIS 3.8 has appeared. For those of you in the know or not in the know – QGIS gets a new version every 4 months. You never have to sit back and wonder when exactly as it’s all been planned out. I’m going to dive into some 3.8 tech things shortly – but for those who want to read the changelog: http://changelog.qgis.org/en/qgis/version/3.8/
The next important thing – the 3.4 LTR (Long Term Release) has moved to 3.4.9. So for those of you who value having software that doesn’t change for 1 year – update! I get to talk (thankfully) to a lot of people who are using QGIS and I always run into 2 situations: “Hey we just updated to the new release” or “We’re running the LTR and we never update”. Every release of the LTR brings a new round of bug squashing and improvements but no new functionality which makes it perfect for corporate environments or educational environments.
So choose wisely and happy QGIS’ing.
