OSGeo-Live 10.5 beta1 released. Test sprint / Doc update

21 February 2017

OSGeo-Live 10.5 beta1 is ready for download at [1]. We're looking for testing applications and updating docs and translations.

In particular, we need help to:

  1. Check if any new features need to be added to Project Overviews
  2. Run Quickstarts and verify they work as described. Please join us on irc:// in the upcoming days during our testing sprint.
  3. Update review status in our spreadsheet [2]. (It really helps us know if an application has been reviewed, and by who).
  4. Translate docs that have been updated.

OSGeo-Live is scheduled to be the default installation at 20+ of the FOSSGIS workshops, and used at [FOSS4G-EU]. 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.
