We present the final data release of the high sensitivity $\lambda$ 21-cm neutral hydrogen survey of the sky south of $\delta
\le -25 \degr$. A total of 50 980 positions lying on a galactic coordinate grid with points spaced by ( $\Delta l, \Delta b$) = (0$\fdg$5/cos b, 0$\fdg$5) were observed with the 30-m dish of the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía (IAR). The angular resolution of the survey is HPBW = 0$\fdg$5 and the velocity coverage spans the interval -450  ${\rm km\,s^{-1}}$ to +400  ${\rm km\,s^{-1}}$ (LSR). The velocity resolution is 1.27  ${\rm km\,s^{-1}}$ and the final rms noise of the entire database is 0.07 K. The data are corrected for stray radiation and converted to brightness temperatures.
