     1= Three weeks till Geospatial Live DVD 3.0 feature freeze=
     214 January 2009
     4Do you want your favorite project on the next Geospatial Live DVD?
     6It 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).
     8We 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.
