We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 1.2.0 'Daphnis' the

who don't mind if the user interface changes from release to release. We
are dropping the term 'unstable' in favour of 'development' to label our
non-long term support releases since it creates the incorrect impression
that these releases are more crash prone. In reality the developer
releases contain many bug fixes that should improve stability over
previous releases.

Binary and source code packages are available at

work on an updated QGIS Users' Guide version 1.2. The guide will be
available in the near future - we will post announcements when it is

QGIS is a completely volunteer driven project, and is the work of a
dedicated team of developers, documenters and supporters. We extend our
thanks and gratitude for the many, many hours people have contributed to
make this release happen.
