A new technology preview version 6.1.0 of GRASS GIS is being released today. This feature release adds hundreds of new features as well as support for the latest GIS data formats. The 3D raster (voxel) support has been greatly enhanced. A new graphical GIS manager and menu system has been implemented. The NVIZ visualization tool has been enhanced to display 3D vector data and voxel volumes and supports the creation of on-the-fly MPEG animations. Substantial message translation (i18n) with support for FreeType fonts, including multi-byte Asian characters was added.
