<h2>Whats new in Version 1.7.0 'Wroclaw'?</h2>
<h2>Whats new in Version 1.7.0 'Wrocław'?</h2>
<p>This release is named after the town of Wrocław in Poland. The Department of
Climatology and Atmosphere Protection, University of Wrocław kindly hosted our
last developer meeting in November 2010. Please note that this is a release in
our 'cutting edge' release series. As such it contains new features and extends
the programmatic interface over QGIS 1.0.x and QGIS 1.6.0. As with any
software, there may be bugs and issues that we were not able to fix in time for
the release. We therefore recommend that you test this version before rolling
it out en-masse to your users.
This release includes over 277 bug fixes and many new features and
enhancements. Once again it is impossible to document everything here that has
changed so we will just provide a bullet list of key new features here.

<h3>Symbology labels and diagrams</h3>
<li>New symbology now used by default!</li>
<li>Diagram system that uses the same smart placement system as labeling-ng</li>
<li>Export and import of styles (symbology-ng).</li>
<li>Labels for rules in rule-based renderers.</li>
<li>Ability to set label distance in map units.</li>
<li>Rotation for svg fills.</li>
<li>Font marker can have an X,Y offset.</li>
<li>Allow the line symbol layers to be used for outline of polygon (fill) symbols.</li>
<li>Option to put marker on the central point of a line.</li>
<li>Option to put marker only on first/last vertex of a line.</li>
<li>Added \"centroid fill\" symbol layer which draws a marker on polygon's centroid.</li>
<li>Allow the marker line symbol layer to draw markers on each vertex.</li>
<li>Move/rotate/change label edit tools to interactively change data defined label properties.</li>
<h3>New Tools</h3>
<li>Added GUI for gdaldem.</li>
<li>Added 'Lines to polygons' tool to vector menu.</li>
<li>Added field calculator with functions like $x, $y and $perimeter.</li>
<li>Added voronoi polygon tool to Vector menu.</li>
<h3>User interface updates</h3>
<li>Allow managing missing layers in a list.</li>
<li>Zoom to group of layers.</li>
<li>'Tip of the day' on startup. You can en/disable tips in the options panel.</li>
<li>Better organisation of menus, separate database menu added.</li>
<li>Add ability to show number of features in legend classes. Accessible via right-click legend menu.</li>
<li>General clean-ups and usability improvements.</li>
<h3>CRS Handling</h3>

<li>Support searching for NULL in attribute table.</li>

<li>Improved interactive attribute editing in table (adding/deleting features, attribute update).</li>
<li>Allow adding of geometryless features.</li>
<li>Fixed attribute undo/redo.</li>
<li>Improved attribute handling:</li>
<li>Optionally re-use entered attribute values for next digitized feature.</li>
<li>Allow merging/assigning attribute values to a set of features.</li></ul></li>

<li>Added QgsVectorLayer::featureAdded signal.</li>
<li>Layer menu function added.</li>
<li>Added option to load c++ plugins from user specified directories. Requires application restart to activate.</li>
<li>Completely new geometry checking tool for fTools. Significantly faster, more relevant error messages, and now supports zooming to errors. See the new QgsGeometry.validateGeometry function</li>
