Wow.

Ok, QGIS 1.7.4 is already a few weeks old. But current version on Debian is 1.4.0! This will be a long “new features” list for Debian users. Thanks for your work, Francesco!

GPS support, right click gesture, pinch zooming and offline editing plugin working. Just a few tickets are left for uploading it to Android market. Hopefully we find another great student for this years follow-up GSoC project!
