The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society is pleased to announce the release of the TTCS OSSWIN DVD v1.2, a collection of Free and Open Source Software for Windows (XP, Vista,7 and 8). It includes LibreOffice 4.2.2, the latest version of the Free and Open Source Office Suite
You can use your web browser to read detailed information about each program in this compilation : what the program does, its key features, useful related websites, view a screenshot, find links to the program’s website and to download/install the program from the TTCS OSSWIN DVD.
The web-based interface allows you to quickly browse the variety of software organised into the following categories:
Sound and Video
The changes to this version adds two new programs (replacing two) and number of software updates.
See the TTCS OSSWIN DVD page at http://www.ttcsweb.org/osswin-dvd/ for more details, including a complete listing of programs included on the DVD, download links and checksum information to verify the download.
Two more games removed to cater for the increased file sizes of Celestia and the TuxPaint stamp collection. Goodness, and Software Freedom Day 2009 is just around the corner, if a v2.0 is to appear before then.
What happened to v1.99? It was released, but before the changelog and website was updated, it was discovered that some of the webpages were not included. So if you managed to download v1.99, my apologies.
Three more programs were removed to cater for the increased size of OpenOffice.org v3.1.0. A reminder to work on the webpage interface before 2.00 is released.
corrected : Grisbi download to include the GTK version.
Although the web based interface looks no different from previous versions, the method of updating and generating the web pages interface was rewritten. Now, the TTCS can generate different versions of open source CDs and DVDs, as discussed before.
Now, regarding translations, I’m aware that the TTCS OSSWIN CD is being translated in different languages. I’ll will be posting an article on how the CD interface is generated, and would make the source files available to those who wish to translate the CD.
Software Freedom Day (SFD) 2008 will be on September 20th, 2008 and the Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS ; http://ttcsweb.org/ ) needs your help.
What is Software Freedom Day?
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a global, grassroots effort to educate the public about the availability and benefits of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Local teams around the world organise and have events on the third Saturday in September.
Software Freedom Day is on September 20th, 2008. We need to plan now and
decide what to do
locate a suitable venue
promote the meeting once the venue and format of SFD 2008 is confirmed
