OSGeo Live DVD and Virtual Machine released

31 March 2009

The Geospatial LiveDVD team is pleased to announce version 3.0 of the OSGeo GeoSpatial? Live DVD and Virtual Machine, code named Arramagong.

From the Arramagong LiveDVD, you can try the best of GeoSpatial? Open Source Software (OSS) without installing any applications on your computer. As a royalty free, reference release with fully tested and configured OSS stack, the LiveDVD is ideal for training, demonstration and public outreach.

The LiveDVD is based on XUbuntu 9.10 so it can be run on most computers simply by rebooting the computer with the DVD inserted. The Arramagong LiveDVD also comes with Windows and Macintosh installers for many of the GeoSpatial? applications too.

Highlights from this 3.0 release include:

  • 34 of the best GeoSpatial? Open Source applications included.
  • 14 new applications added since release 2.0, at FOSS4G 2009
  • 13 applications updated
  • Formalised testing introduced for all packages as part of the release process
  • Plus lots of general improvements and fixes
