winGRASS 6.4.0RC2 now available!

The new winGRASS 6.4.0RC2 is now available! It has been packaged into the OSGeo4W installer which also provides QGIS, Mapserver, GDAL and other goodies.

OSGeo4W has two modes – express and advanced:

  • “Express” gives you a short list of suggested packages to select from which have been widely tested.
  • “Advanced” gives a long detailed list of packages and subpackages including development versions and so forth. For the moment GRASS is available in the “advanced” install. After a period of testing it may be moved to the “express” section.

OSGeo4W Installer download:
http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/osgeo4w-setup.exe
Please download it and test. The wizard will guide you through the installation process.
