Starting build cycle for OSGeo-Live 7.9

 

We are starting the build cycle for version 7.9 of the OSGeo-Live DVD/USB/VM which will be released in March 2013, ready for several special events, including the OSGeo Code Sprint in Vienna, Spanish FOSS4G, French FOSS4G, FOSSGIS Germany, among others.

Our aim for this release is to focus on .deb packaging, which will make projects simple to install on all debian and ubuntu based distributions.

We 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.

IMPORTANT : Could all projects please reply to us with the preferred, stable version of software to be included in this release.
