Has QGIS 1.7 been released as a stable version yet?

I see on the QGIS site the windows download on the is still referring to 1.6 and the OSGEO4W install has 1.6.0-7 as the stable release.

I had seen some links here and here among others which referred to March/April for a release. I'm not unhappy with the timeline, I'm just curious that I might have missed something.

  • s'alright ;-) in the grand scheme it's a small misstep – matt wilkie Jun 20 '11 at 16:47

No QGIS 1.7 is not out yet as a proper release. There will be a release very soon.

The release was delayed as the development team moved over to using Git for version control and the idea was also to use a new bug tracking platform before the release, however the new bug tracking is going to wait until after the release as everyone has been busy.

For OSGeo4W "1.6.0-7" means version 1.6.0, package version 7. For example (and more info):

If you are keen to try out the development snapshot, you can install qgis-dev, but it isn't stable.
