25 May 2021

The OSGeoLive team are proud to announce the release of version 14.0 of the OSGeoLive GIS software collection.

We would like to dedicate this version to our friend Malena Libman who passed away shortly before OSGeoLive 14.0 was released. FOSS4G 2021 Buenos Aires was her dream. Farewell Malena, we will miss you.

Release Highlights

Highlights for this release include:

  • Based on Lubuntu 20.04.1 Focal
  • New applications pygeoapi, Re3gistry, GeoStyler.
  • Version updates to most of the included packages.
  • The Virtual Machine version now includes applications that could not fit into the iso version. List of VM only applications available here.
  • Additional Python modules like Fiona, rasterio, cartopy, pandas, geopandas, mappyfile, Jupyter.
  • Improved documentation and four new translations, now supporting: English | Deutsch | Español | Suomen kieli | Français | Italiano | 日本語 | Hungarian.
  • 100 % translation to Hungarian. Zoltán Siki, one of the Hungarian translators, pointed out the need for the translation and will use it at GIS courses at University in Budapest.
  • 100 % translation to Spanish.
  • Command line introduction.
  • Improved Quickstart for OpenStretMap? thanks to Enock Seth Nyamador.

Marco Minghini, Scientific Project Officer at the European Commission, says "Open source geospatial software is a key building block of many data infrastructures managed and operated by the European Commission, powering high-level, pan-European initiatives such as INSPIRE and Copernicus. The role of OSGeoLive to teach and promote the use of open source geospatial software has no equivalent. Big thanks to OSGeo and the OSGeoLive team!"

OSGeoLive 14 is ready to be used at events. It will be used at FOSSGIS Konferenz 2021 in June and FOSS4G 2021 in September 2021.
