We are starting to build the 5.5 OSGeo-Live DVD which will be released in March 2012, ready for the Spanish FOSS4G, FOSSGIS Germany, GISRUK in England and the MapWindow?/FOSS4G Regional Netherlands Conference, among others. We would like to hear from anyone wishing to add new projects to OSGeo-Live, anyone wishing to extend or add extra translations, or anyone who has ideas on how we should shape the upcoming release.

==Which project version?== Could each installed project please update our status sheet to note the expected version to be installed on OSGeo-Live 5.5. Status sheet.

Key Priorities for next release

  • Disk Space
    • We have reached our DVD size limits, and need to be creative about saving space
  • Package Updates
    • Update and test latest stable software releases
  • Quickstart Reviews
    • We have Project Quickstarts, but most haven't gone through comprehensive review
  • Testing
    • With Quality being a key focus area for us, we need lots of help with testing.
