The latest version of QGIS, version 2.8 aka QGIS Wien, has been released. Besides along list of new features and improvements (check out the visual change log), this is also the first release designated an ‘LTR’ (Long Term Release).
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). This may be particularly important for enterprises and organisations that do not want to deal with updating user skills, training materials etc. more than once per year.
The list of new features and improvements is really too long to summarize here, and there are too many to pinpoint one favourite. So instead I would say, check it out yourself!
It has taken many years of development, but finally the new stable major release GRASS GIS 7.0.0 is available. Many congratulations to the developers, they did an incredible job.

The second release candidate of the upcoming stable GRASS GIS 7.0.0 version has been released. You can read the announcement here (including the download links) or the more detailed news about the release candidate here.
If you are still using GRASS 6.4, this long list of new features and improvements implemented in GRASS GIS 7 will give you plenty of reasons why you should try out the latest and greatest.
