OSGeo-Live 10.0 beta1 released. Test sprint / Doc update

29 June 2016

OSGeo-Live 10.0 beta1 is ready for download at [1]. We're looking for testing applications and updating docs and translations.

In particular, we need help to:

  • Check if any new features need to be added to Project Overviews
  • Run Quickstarts and verify they work as described. Please join us on irc://freenode.net#osgeolive this weekend, 2 & 3 July 2016, for our testing sprint.
  • Update review status in our spreadsheet [2]. (It really helps us know if an application has been reviewed, and by who).
  • Translate docs that have been updated.

OSGeo-Live is scheduled to be the default installation at FOSS4G 2016 workshops. We strongly urge all workshop leaders to test OSGeo-Live now and provide feedback, while there is still time to tweak anything required for the workshop.
