GRASS 6.4 brings a number of exciting enhancements to the GIS. Our new wxPython graphical user interface (wxGUI) is debuted, Python is now a fully supported scripting language, and for the first time since its inception with a port from the VAX 11/780 in 1983, GRASS runs natively also on a non-UNIX based platform: MS-Windows.
I know right, you thought the same thing I did. If only you had known in 1983 that there was a VAX port think of where you’d be today.
Cue the dramatic prairie dog!
