SAGA 2.0.8 stable released

Dear SAGA users,

the SAGA Development Team is pleased to announce that SAGA 2.0.8 stable has been released. As version 2.0.8 will be the last release supporting wxwidgets versions < 2.9.2, we will support this version with bug fixes until we feel that the development version is stable again.

The release of 2.0.8 includes numerous enhancements, new features and bug fixes. A detailed report on the changes since 2.0.7 is available here (https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/saga-gis/wiki/SAGA%20Release%20Information)... read more

SAGA User Guide released

2010-11-13 16:48:28 CET

Dear SAGA users,

I'm pleased to announce that Volume 2 of the SAGA User Guide by Kim Cimmery has been released. While Volume 1 provides mainly an introduction to SAGA GUI, Volume 2 provides 'How To' information on many SAGA modules, functions, and GIS applications.

Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are updated to SAGA version 2.0.5. You can download the PDFs from the "References" section on the SAGA homepage (http://www.saga-gis.org/en/index.html) or from the "Files" section here on sourceforge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/saga-gis/)... read more

SAGA 2.0.3 released

SAGA 2.0.3 Release Notes

Dear SAGA user community,

it took a while longer than expected that we decided to release a new version of SAGA. But now the time has come. We will not say much about program improvements, bug fixes and new modules in these release notes, though probably a lot could be said. Instead we want to announce only a few things. Most members of the SAGA core developer team have moved from Goettingen to Hamburg, which explains a little bit our quasi laziness. ... read more

SAGA 2.0.1 for Gentoo Linux

Thanks to the Gentoo-GIS overlay project it is now possible for Gentoo users to use portage for the installation of SAGA. The name of the package is "sagagis". Please refer to the instructions on the project page (http://gentoo-gis.sourceforge.net) on how to use the overlay. Please also note that you will need wxGTK 2.8, which is not yet in portage. However you can find an ebuild for this package at the Gentoo bug tracker:

SAGA 2.0.1 released

SAGA 2.0.1 Release Notes

Dear SAGA user community,

it is just a few weeks ago that SAGA 2.0.0 has been released, but as you can see: the 'saga' goes on continuously. This release brings primarily bug fixes for the Linux GUI, which amongst other annoying things did not display the modules menu correctly. Besides this an additional workspace tab showing thumbnails for maps has been added. You also find a few new modules, from which a new preprocessing method for digital terrain models - contributed by Volker Wichmann - is perhaps the most notable one.... read more

SAGA 2.0.0 - Release Notes


System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses


Dear SAGA user community,

after long years of development the SAGA team is now presenting the official release of SAGA version 2.0. Those of you, who used the last stable release 1.2, will first notice the different graphical user interface (GUI). Others will know it already from the previously published release candidates. Also the underlying system architecture changed quite a bit and many modules have been added or could be improved. But all in all the basic concepts of SAGA, like its modular structure, remain untouched and you should be able to use it straight forward.... read more

SAGA 2.0 RC3 supports Python

SAGA 2.0 - Release Candidate 3

Dear SAGA users,

...a small number of major innovations to SAGA led us to the decision to publish a third release candidate before establishing a final release of SAGA version 2.

For simple users of SAGA the most important change is the use of the wxWidgets 'Advanced User Interface' (wxAUI), which replaces the previously used and not anymore maintained 'wxDockit' functions. wxAUI is part of the official wxWidgets distribution, so we hope to benefit from future improvements of it, but we did not test it yet very well.... read more

SAGA 2.0 - Release Candidate 2

SAGA 2.0 - Release Candidate 2

Dear SAGA users,

...again, we want to thank you for the numerous feedback we've
got from you. This time we want to give you the chance to check
out the SAGA 2.0 Release Candidate 2, which soon will be followed
by the official release of the stable SAGA version 2.0. Only very
few changes have been made to the user interface, but a number
of classes had to be renamed due to a more consistent naming
convention. Therefore mainly module programmers will be affected
by changes to the previous release. Please read also the release
notes for the candidate 1 for more information on new features:

Dear SAGA users,

we want to thank you for the numerous feedback we got from

development, many bug fixes, feature requests and source
code contributions could be applied and led to the now
coming Release Candidate 1. Four archive files have been
prepared for download:

  1. 'saga_2.0_rc1_bin_mswvc.zip': Windows binaries compiled

SAGA 2.0 Beta Release

SAGA 2.0 Beta - Release Notes

Dear SAGA users,

...it is now about a year ago, when I decided to start to develop a new SAGA version. This seemed to be necessary for several reasons, mainly related to the graphical user interface (GUI) and the data management. Also there occured a number of problems and limitations using the MFC and the MS-Windows API. So it was a good time to choose an alternative GUI platform too. My first choice became the wxWidgets C++ cross platform GUI toolkit (http://www.wxwidgets.org), a comprehensive and well matured toolkit with ports for various compilers and operating systems. Therefore you find now SAGA binaries for MS-Windows and Linux. Also there is a MS-Windows version compiled with the MinGW compiler (attention: because of incompatible class library export definitions this version is not compatible with the one compiled with the Microsoft compiler - use either one of the versions!).... read more
