OSGeoLive starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 16.0

12. January 2023

Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience?

alpha1 version has been released
The build cycle for the next OSGeoLive release 16.0, has started. Our 
base operating system for the new version is Lubuntu 22.04.1. The first 
alpha version of OSGeoLive 16.0 has been released. Please download [1], 
test and report any issues found [2]. The final version is planned to be 
ready in May 2023.
Please have a look at our schedule for the detailed steps [3].

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

We are looking for new projects
For this release, we hope to help OSGeo Community projects join 
OSGeoLive, and work out how we can keep within our size constraints.

You are welcome to join our team!
Are you a programmer or packager with experience in one of the Open 
Source GIS applications? Are you a technical writer interested in making 
FOSS4G accessible to all?
Are you interested in helping update translations to latest documents on 
Transifex [3] [4]?

Contact us
If you would like to add a new project or have another goal you would 
like to work on and get involved you are very welcome.

Please join the OSGeoLive mailing list [7] or meet us on Jitsi [8] at 
our weekly meetings (Tuesdays at 20:00 UTC).
