Grass 7 Beta 4 just announced.

Hope you are having a great Christmas. Just wanted to remind the Free and Open Source Geospatial Community about the Grass GIS 7 (Beta 4) release of a couple of days ago. My apologies if this has been copied to social media sites but worth mentioning non-the-less. As a huge fan of this workhorse of a product it has some major new enhancements and features in order to bring it more in line with the rest of the wxPython Geospatial Community. Have a look at the following link:

Below is a quick example (exported as an animated gif) of how easy it is to produce a series of raster map overlays onto some base lidar data (using the 'r.lake' module and the new animation module) in order to get an idea of the effects of rising river water levels over a thousand year period as a result of global warming at the current sea level rise of 3mm per year (for this demo no other environmental factors have been taken into account).

The new animation module 'g.gui.animation' is capable of including several animations in a single window and able to support 3D, Space/time Rasters, Voxel/Volume and Vector data. Just got to get that legend working properly.

Installation for Ubuntu 14.4? users via'terminal':

Ubuntu 14.4: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:grass/grass-stable; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install grass70-core; grass70-gui; To start: grass70
