OSGeo-Live 11.0 beta1 released. Help with testing & with the translation

4 June 2017

OSGeo-Live 11.0 beta1 is ready for download at [1]. We're looking for testing applications and translations.

In particular, we need help to:

  1. Help Testing. Run Quickstarts and verify they work as described. Please join us on irc://freenode.net#osgeolive this weekend, 8 & 9 July 2017, for our testing sprint.
  2. Check if any new features need to be added to Project Overviews [2]
  3. Update review status in our spreadsheet [4]. (It really helps us know if an application has been reviewed, and by who).
  4. Translate docs that have been updated. You find the documentation at [2]. Read how to get the documentation fom github and how to make pull request [3].

OSGeo-Live is scheduled to be the default installation at FOSS4G 2017 workshops. We strongly urge all workshop leaders to test OSGeo-Live now and provide feedback, while there is still time to tweak anything required for the workshop.
