6.2.4cvs

not yet released

Bug fixes:

  • ...

Enhancements

  • db.login: also interactively query password (Markus Neteler)
TODO
  • Further investigate NVIZ raster volume segfaults.
  • Finally fix v.buffer bugs

Final details:

  • Update cron scripts so cvs snapshot patch set diff.gz is vs. 6.2.3.
  • Generate inter-release ChangeLog:
gzip -d ChangeLog_6.2.3.gz
cp ChangeLog_6.2.2 ChangeLog_6.2.1-6.2.2
vi ChangeLog_6.2.1-6.2.2
# /6.2.2 release
# j (down a line)
# 50000dd
# :wq
gzip ChangeLog_6.2.1-6.2.2
then move ChangeLog_6.2.1-6.2.2.gz to web/grass62/source/

WONTFIX? Later?

Bug fixes:

  • NVIZ: fix Max Res PPM for offscreen rendering (Glynn)
6.2 branch currently defaults to working onscreen rendering, so not release-critical

Enhancements:

  • r.out.gdal region sensitive (backport new r.out.gdal from CVS HEAD?)
-- We can just take enhanced shell version from CVS HEAD (r.out.gdal.sh) --Jachym 10:00, 12 March 2007 (CET)
-- IMO r.out.gdal should remain shell script version in 6.2.x, but be updated to be the most modern version of that we have. Leave the C version to 6.3+. --Hamish, 23 Apr 2007
