State of GRASS GIS: 40 Years Strong and Counting
12-01, 11:00–11:20 (Asia/Seoul), Circle Room

The GRASS GIS community celebrated its 40th birthday this past summer! Its version 8.3 provides more than 360 changes compared to the 8.2 release, and it comes with many fixes and improvements in its modules and graphical user interface. The single-window layout is now mature and provided as the default UI. We have extensively cleaned up the C/C++ code by adopting the Clang format and fixing almost all compiler warnings. Not only that, we started modernizing the build system using CMake for cross-platform build automation, testing, and packaging. We are also converting the HTML manuals to easier-to-maintain Markdown/mkdocs to collect more user contributions. Last but not least, for internalization efforts, we have migrated our translation platform from Transifex to Weblate, which automatically creates pull requests with new translations. As always, we welcome new contributors for development, documentation, and translation!
