     1= Starting build cycle for OSGeo-Live 10.0=
     310 May 2016
     5We are starting the build cycle for version 10.0 of the [ OSGeo-Live] DVD/USB/VM which will be released in August 2016, ready for the global FOSS4G conference in Bonn, Germany.
     7This release is going to be more challenging than usual as we be moving to the next Long Term Release (LTS) of Ubuntu,16.04 Xenial. We expect to be asking for help to solve the multitude of dependency conflicts likely to be introduced. In particular, we expect most debian packages and bash installers will need tweaking once an alpha OSGeo-Live build is working. Initial packaging efforts have started and the Debian packages will soon appear in UbuntuGIS Unstable (currently in Testing).
     9We would like to hear from anyone wishing to add new projects to OSGeo-Live, anyone wishing to extend or add translations, or anyone who has ideas on how we should shape the upcoming release.
