Live GIS Disc Press Release 59
Starting build cycle for OSGeo-Live 9.0
19 May 2015
We are starting the build cycle for version 9.0 of the OSGeo-Live DVD/USB/VM which will be released at FOSS4G in Seoul, Korea in September 2015.
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.
For this release we will be moving our version control system from subversion to git. This is currently getting set up and we will be providing details shortly. Git migration discussion is happening on our mailing list. Feel free to join!
