QGIS 2.0 nightly features review

The last few weeks have been super exciting and intense in terms of QGIS development. I’ve been working a lot and sleeping little to get the latest and greatest stuff to you in the nightly packages.
Here a non exhaustive list of what is getting into this awesome package:

  • Updated to QGIS 2.0.1
  • updated the full library stack to the latest releases (including GDAL 1.10.1 -with mbtiles and spatialite 4)
  • made a simplified base GUI
  • updated the java part
  • improved stability
  • readded qt menues
  • added rendering notification in canvas
  • updated icons

Beside the whole UI and stability work, the nicest feature is probably the mbtiles support. mbtiles are raster tiles in a sqlite database and are blazing fast, have a look at it in the video below.
For now, you still need to use the QGIS installer, but i’m already working on a strategy to soon get the package in the play store, so stay tuned for more super exciting android QGIS times to come, and of course, if you or anyone you know can buy me a glass of wine I’ll be a merry coder 🙂
