I have a draft of the press release for version 13. We can discuss this further at the weekly meeting to be held Tuesday evening (or Wednesday morning Australian time). My apologies for the delay – I’m still getting used to lists.


Starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 13 and call for translators and documenters


28 February 2019


Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience? The build cycle for the next OSGeoLive release, 13.0, is going to start in 3 weeks at OSGeo Code Sprint 2019 in Minneapolis-St. Paul [1]. The final version is planned to be ready at 2nd August 2019 in time for FOSS4G 2019 in Bucharest [2]. Have a look at our schedule for the detailed steps [3].


Till then we have many challenges - from simple to challenging, to help describe and train people in the value of Open Source GIS.


For version 13.0 we are looking to build a cloud version of the release and are looking for volunteers to help with the build and the documentation.


Are you a programmer or packager with experience in one of the Open Source GIS applications. Are you interested in helping update a project to the latest version.


Are you a technical writer interested in making FOSS4G accessible to all?


Join us at OSGeo Code Sprint 2019


There will be the OSGeo Code Sprint 2019 in Bucharest from 14th to 17th May 2019 [1]. Some people from OSGeoLive team will be there. We'd love to see you, whether you are new to Open Source or an experienced old timer.
