This is the change log for the next release of QGIS - version 2.10.0 ' Pisa' - host city to our developer meet up in March 2010.
This is the next release in our 4-monthly release series. It gives you early access to the new features we have been working on and represents the 'cutting edge' of QGIS development. If you are working in a production environment where you wish to be more conservative about rolling out new features to your users, we also provide a Long Term Release (LTR) version of QGIS. The current LTR is version 2.8.2 and is available at download.qgis.org. LTR releases will be supported with backported bug fixes for one year, and will be in permanent feature freeze (i.e. no new features will be added, only bug fixes and trivial updates). The features provided in QGIS 2.10 'Pisa' will be included in the next LTR release (slated for release in 2016), so using this release provides you with an excellent opportunity to test new features that will make their way into the next LTR.
New Features in QGIS 2.10 'Pisa'
QGIS 2.10.0 includes many great new features, tweaks and enhancements to make the most popular Free desktop GIS even more feature filled and useful. 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.
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!

QGIS is Free software and you are under no obligation to pay anything to use it - in fact we want to encourage people far and wide to use it regardless of what your financial or social status is - we believe empowering people with spatial decision making tools will result in a better society for all of humanity.
