GRASS GIS 7.8.4RC1 released


What’s new in a nutshell

As a follow-up to the previous GRASS GIS 7.8.3 we have published the new pre-release GRASS GIS 7.8.4RC1 with more than 170 improvements. This minor release again focuses on wxGUI fixes, especially in the animation export, the layer management, 3D visualization and the data catalogue. Many d.* modules received fixes as well, and the vector digitizer now works as expected.

The overview of new features in the 7.8 release series is available at new features in GRASS GIS 7.8. See also our detailed announcement with the full list of changes and bugs fixed at https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/Release/7.8.4-News.
