For those wondering about the operating system for this year's Give One Get One, I am happy to report we are now one step away from final confirmation that Sugar Release 8.2.0 will be the winner, according to this week's Current Events:
Starting October 13, all G1G1v2 XOs will be manufactured with release 8.2. The image needs to pass the final Quanta tests next week. If no issues arise, the release is final. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen! Release party plans are in the works.If you cannot make the party, you can still help with the 8.2.x release effort by becoming an OLPC friend in testing with your XO. There you can help test the Sugar OS and activities from the comfort of your own XO-1. Oh and don't be shy. There is still much work to do and Greg Smith is already started release planning for 8.2.1.
