  OSGeo today announced that the OSGeo-Live GIS software collection
version 7.9 has been released, featuring more than fifty open source,
standards compliant geospatial desktop applications, web applications
and frameworks.

  This release is a modernization update to last year's 7.0 release
including new versions of the software but preserving much of the core
build and operating system. In addition we've added a number of small
fixes and updated document translations.

  The OSGeo-Live Lightning Presentation which explains the breadth of
OSGeo software is now bundled with OSGeo-Live. It is often presented by
conference organisors, or keynote speakers. The presentation may be
given as is, or modified to align with time constraints, presenter's
interest, or conference focus.

  Twenty two geospatial programs have been updated to newer versions. The
core geospatial stack has also been upgraded from UbuntuGIS, and the
base operating system has been updated to Xubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, including
all the latest security and bug fixes, and web browser updates.

  OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB flash drive and
Virtual Machine based upon Ubuntu Linux. OSGeo-Live is pre-configured
with a wide variety of robust open source geospatial software. All
applications can be trialled without installing anything on your
computer, simply by booting the computer from a DVD or USB drive, or
running in a Virtual Machine environment. Each featured package is
accompanied by both a publication quality one page descriptive summary
and a short tutorial on how to get started using it.
http://live.osgeo.org [3] OSGeo-Live includes:

  * Over sixty quality geospatial Open Source applications installed and
  * Free world maps and geodata
  * One page overview and quick start guide for every application
  * Overviews of key OGC standards
  * Translations to multiple languages

  Over 180 people have directly helped with OSGeo-Live packaging,
documenting and translating, and thousands have been involved in
building the packaged software. Developers, packagers, documenters and
translators include:
