The following files:


have “grass70” hardcoded in them to launch a Grass 7 command. Thus, they don’t work with the new 7.2 release.

Maybe instead of harcoding "grass70" provide the user with a new widget for him to pick up the Grass version they use, and set the name accordingly?

Since GRASS 7.2.0 is the new stable version and it is available in the major repositories, this needs to be updated ASAP.

If not the Vince's proposal, at least update from "grass70" to "grass72".

BTW, are GRASS devs going to change executable name for each version?
