We are pleased to announce the release of QGIS 3.4 ‘Madeira’! Madeira was the location of our developer meeting in February 2018.
Windows installers and Ubuntu/debian binaries are already out, and all the packagers are actively preparing packages for the other operating systems. We’ll keep you updated when different packages and installers become available.
QGIS 3.4 comes with tons of new features, as you can see in our visual changelog.
QGIS 3.4 will become the first LTR of version 3. Based on our current plans, 3.4 will replace 2.18 as LTR in February 2019.
We would like to thank the developers, documenters, testers and all the many folks out there who volunteer their time and effort (or fund people to do so). From the QGIS community we hope you enjoy this release! If you wish to donate time, money or otherwise get involved in making QGIS more awesome, please wander along to qgis.org and lend a hand!
