I am using python and PYQGIS and I have installed QGIS via OSGEOW. I chose the complete advanced install with all packages, libraries and GIS programs.

There is a 2.99 developer's version and the latest stable version (2.18.7).

What additions does the developer's version feature, and what differences does it make for python programming?

    2.99 is dev version for the coming v3.0 there are some major changes coming... blog.qgis.org/2016/02/10/qgis-3-0-plans >python "Qt5/PyQt5/Python3 branch in parallel, actually work on it until it’s ready, make it master and release it as 3.0" – Mapperz Apr 24 '17 at 23:01
  • But such branch does not exist yet, and blog says "Meantime keep working on master (2.x) and keep releasing them every 4 months as usual". – user30184 Apr 25 '17 at 6:00
