So I’m a bit behind…right in the middle of posting cool things about 2.6, ‘Brighton’ was released. It was fun from my end watching this (because I can’t do squat for the development side but file bug reports) as discussions occurred over the new features. Discussions over the release schedule. Discussions about proposed features coming in the future. IIf you are in GIS and don’t have QGIS installed you’re failing. I don’t care if you are a four letter acronym shop.
So from the email bag:
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 2.6 'Brighton'. The new release contains a lot of new features, tweaks and enhancements. More over this time there are more complete translations than ever before. This is third release following our four month release schedule that is meant to make new features and bugfixes available quicker and the development and new releases more predictable. Again the testing phase was fruitful and was therefore extended by a week. Thanks to all the tester for their time and good reports. 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. Please revisit the page if your platform is not available yet.
