After much hard work from the OSGeo-Live build team, we release today 
the first alpha version of OSGeo-Live 10.0.

It is based on the new Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Long Term Support (LTS). Over 
the last 6 weeks since Ubuntu 16.04 was released, we have ported the 
entire build system to the new LTS and we merged packaging effort from 
DebianGIS and UbuntuGIS, bringing most of the recent geospatial packages 
to Xenial. The result is now shared with the OSGeo community through the 
updated UbuntuGIS repositories (Testing and Unstable).

We encourage all OSGeo-Live projects to download OSGeo-Live alpha1 [1], 
test your project with this new release and make sure it works as 
expected. If your project is missing from the iso, it means that the 
installer failed completely and needs extra attention from you. Please 
report back issues to our Trac instance [2] (and let us know what you 
have tested on our mailing list live-demo at lists.osgeo.org. We track this 
information in our status spreadsheet [3]). We love pro-active projects 
we don't have to chase, so please prepare your code to work on the new 
LTS and send us a pull request with your installer changes.

We have a lot of work to do and a tight schedule if we are to release in 
time for FOSS4G in Bonn. Our next milestone is to reach beta stage by 
the end of June.
