He wrote two books on QGis: https://locatepress.com/ (“discover qgis” and “qgis for hydrological applications”).
Some of the nicest new features in recent qgis releases.
The temporal controller!
The browser panel now exposes fields from your data sources. A handy UI feature.
Browser panel: you can color-code your items now.
Right-click on the map and you get a context menu. Handy for copying coordinates, for instance, but there will be more later.
You can add notes to layers.
On the bottom left there’s a “go-to locator” to find items in your contents. It can now also do geocoding (“nominatim geocoder”). What also works: copying an openstreetmap or google maps URL.
Attribute table: you can now quickly filter on “selected features” or “visible features” so that you don’t get the entire table contents.
Color vision deficiency tools: you can get a preview of your map, rendered such as a color blind person would see it.
Interpolated line renderer. A renderer that collapses areas into one.
Label callout: labels that get placed way from the feature for better readability. There are some new render methods here for the connecting line. Balloon label callouts are also possible.
Custom legend patches. He really likes these to get a much nicer legend. The style manager also support it. You can even grab a shape from your own map and use it. And… there’s “browse online styles”. Check it out!
Print composer: you can clip the map to a shape. Nice for non-rectangular shapes.
Print composer: dynamic text, for automatically rendering the date, project name, etc.
Point cloud support. A new data source. They’re also supported in the 3d view. You can also export it to Blender.
“Raster attribute table” plugin. Picks up when there’s a separate table with classes for rendering rasters.
