QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows.
We are very pleased to announce the release of QGIS 2.18 'Las Palmas' on the October 21st. Las Palmas was the host city to our developer meet up in November 2015. Latest Release This is the latest and last release in the 2.x series. This release provides incremental improvements over our previous release. The majority of activity is currently focussed towards the development of QGIS 3.0 which is our next generation release planned for the end of the first quarter of 2017. The current Long Term Release (LTR) remains version 2.14.x and will be maintained until it's replaced by the first LTR based on QGIS 3. New Features in QGIS 2.18 'Las Palmas' QGIS 2.18 includes great new features, tweaks and enhancements to make the most popular Free desktop GIS even more feature filled and useful. Visit the visual changelog that highlights some of the new additions ( http://qgis.org/en/site/forusers/visualchangelog218/ ). Whenever new features are added to software they introduce the possibility of new bugs - if you encounter any problems with this release, please file a ticket on the QGIS Bug Tracker ( http://hub.qgis.org ). The source code and binaries for Windows, Debian and Ubuntu are already available via the large download link on our home page: http://qgis.org.
