Three weeks till Geospatial Live DVD 3.0 feature freeze

14 January 2009

Do you want your favorite project on the next Geospatial Live DVD?

It is now decision time for determining what software will be stored on the upcoming Arramagong GIS Live DVD, release 3.0. We have a feature freeze in 3 weeks which means the Live DVD will be ready for a number of large geospatial conferences in April. (If we have enough volunteers, we will be able to have the release ready for the German Speaking conference in March as well).

We have built our first 3.0-alpha1 release of Arramagong based on XUbuntu 9.10, with a few glitches in some packages. We hope projects will help us fix these over the next few weeks. : Build logs at: http://download.osgeo.org/livedvd/3.0-alpha1/

We are now calling on projects to:

By 7 February 2010 (Feature Freeze):

  • Verify which version of stable software will be installed on the liveDVD. Priority will be given to software already packaged for Ubuntu.

  • Update install scripts to work with Ubuntu 9.10

By 28 February 2010 (Final Release Candidate):

  • Test the project's application in the LiveDVD and fix all bugs
  • Optional: refine documentation & general look and feel
