We are starting the build cycle for version 10.0 of theOSGeo-Live 
<http://live.osgeo.org/>DVD/USB/VM which will be released in August 
2016, ready for the global FOSS4G conference in Bonn, Germany.
This release is going to be more challenging than most as we are moving 
to the next Long Term Release (LTS) of Ubuntu,16.04 Xenial. We expect to 
be asking for help to solve the multitude of dependency conflicts likely 
to be introduced. In particular, we expect most debian packages and bash 
installers will need tweaking once an alpha OSGeo-Live build is working.
Initial packaging efforts have started and the Debian packages will soon 
appear in UbuntuGIS Unstable (currently in Testing).
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.

*Key Milestones*
23 May 2016 All new applications installed, most old applications updated
13 Jun 2016 Feature Freeze (all apps updated)
20 Jun 2016 User Acceptance Test (all apps installed and working)

...full schedule
