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.
