[Free Education Software GCompris]
After 7 months, we are proud to announce the new version of GCompris 0.61. One important change on the commercial side of GCompris. Bruno Coudoin is now replaced by Timothée Giet as the commercial entity. Timothée is a graphic artist with a long list of contributions on GCompris and in the KDE community. After 16 years of continuous development on GCompris, Bruno is willing to step down and gives the opportunity to a new team to bring the project forward. For now, all sales go to Timothée and he is in charge of the commercial support. The new activities are: A simple wordprocessor (baby_word_processor by Bruno Coudoin), this activity is not available on mobile platforms due to issues with the virtual keyboard: if we only use the real keyboard, styles don't apply and if we only use the virtual keyboard, we can't navigate in the text, select it...A tangram (by Bruno Coudoin). If you want to help, please make some posts in your community about GCompris.
