    GCompris available from the Windows Store
    2017-11-10 
    GCompris in Windows Store

    As the title says, you can now buy the full version of GCompris for Windows 10 from the Windows Store.

    This is a good way to make it more visible and easy to find for new users. Also, if you buy GCompris from the Windows Store, you get automatic updates, you can install it easily on all your Windows systems, and it will run in a sandbox.

    Spread the word !

    GCompris in Windows Store

    If you prefer to not use the store, or if you only want the free demo version, you can still download it from our Download page, and buy the activation code to unlock all the activities. The store is just one more way to distribute GCompris, and to provide some income to support the project.

    As usual, the full version is free on Free-Software operating systems like GNU/Linux, but for proprietary operating systems like Windows, the full version has a cost. Of course, the source code of GCompris is and will always be under a Free-Software license.

    Note: the package on the store contains the version using the software renderer instead of OpenGL, since it's the only way we have for now to make sure it will work on any computer. If you really want the version using OpenGL, get it from our Download page.

    GCompris Qt for Raspberry Pi
    2017-10-24 
    Raspberry Pi gcompris on Raspberry Pi

    We are very happy to bring you GCompris 0.81, this time on Raspberry Pi.

    This version for Raspberry Pi was made possible thanks to the new "light" mode that we've been working on (read the previous post to learn more about this new rendering mode).

    It was built and tested on Raspberry Pi 3, where it works good. Since it was not tested a lot yet, this first package is considered beta. Please report any issue you may experience with it. If you can try it on a Pi 2, please let us know the result. It was also not tested on Pi 1, but those probably don't have enough cpu and/or ram to run it.

    The installer is on the Download page with all instructions needed to use it.

    Thank you all,
    Timothée & Johnny

    We are happy to bring you GCompris 0.81.

    This is a bugfix release to correct some issues in previous version. All GNU/Linux distributions shipping 0.80 should update to 0.81.

    Also, we introduce a new "light" version that doesn't require OpenGL to run. This means that it should work on any computer. We provide some special windows packages using this option, and also the standalone installer for Linux 32bit is using this option. In this light version, the transparency gradient on the menu is gone, and we had to adapt a dozen of activities that will look a little different in this mode, but should still be usable.

    We also added a new Download page on the website, with instructions for each operating system.

    Last but not least, we now have translation for Indonesian, thanks to some very nice contributors who organised a sprint in Indonesia to work on it.

    The most important changes in this version are:

  • Categorization, fix the "Shape" category
  • Categorization, fix the menu layout
  • Categorization, display score in expert mode
  • Guesscount, fix invalid result
  • Add Indonesian locale
  • Fix the missing copyright and licence info
  • Fix a font issue on windows version
  • Add a new minimal version with software rendering (requires Qt 5.8)

  • Activities modified to run with software rendering:

  • crane
  • categorization
  • lang
  • hanoi
  • tangram
  • land_safe
  • click_on_letter
  • left/right
  • hexagon
  • magic_hat
  • color_mix
  • color_mix_light

  • You can find this new version here:

  • Android:
  • The new version is available in the Android store

  • Windows:
  • Windows 32bit or Windows 64bit version

  • Windows (light version - No OpenGL):
  • Windows 32bit - No OpenGL or Windows 64bit - No OpenGL version

  • Linux:
  • If your distribution doesn't provide an updated package, use one of those standalone installers. They must be launched from command line, after adding executable permission on the file. Check the Download page for more info.
    Linux 32bit or Linux 64bit version

  • Source code

  • md5sums :
  • For all downloads: md5sums

  • GPG verification :
  • The source tarball, the windows and the linux installers are signed. You can retrieve the public key over https here: 0x63d7264c05687d7e.asc.

    Release GCompris Qt 0.61
    2016-08-07 
    screenshots of the new activities in version 0.61

    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. There are no changes in the licensing nor in the development process which is still under the responsability of the KDE community (Johnny Jazeix being the most active contributor).

    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). It starts with children friendly levels to introduce each concepts little by little and end up in the real tangram.
  • Explore the monuments of the world (explore_monuments by Ayush Agrawal during SoK).
  • An activity in which the children must color a graph so that no two adjacent nodes have the same color (graph_coloring by Akshat Tandon during SoK).
  • Pilot the spaceship towards the green landing area (land_safe by Holger Kaelberer).
  • Find the differences between the two pictures (photo_hunter by Stefan Toncu).
  • Timothée Giet updated images for chess, hangman and horizontal/vertical reading activities along with the gcompris logo.

    Lots of little fixes/improvements have been done (storing and restoring the window's width/height at start-up, docbook updated, levels/images bonus, adding an internal dataset for words games so that we no more expect the network to run GCompris (except for the voices but they also can be bundled in the binary).

    On translation side, we have 17 languages fully supported: Belarusian, British English, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Catalan (Valencian), Chinese Simplified, Dutch, French, Galician, Italian, Norwegian Nynorsk, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian and some partially: Breton (88%), Chinese Traditional (97%), Estonian (82%), Finnish (74%), German (93%), Russian (83%), Slovak (76%), Slovenian (82%), Turkish (82%)

    If you want to help, please make some posts in your community about GCompris.

    The source code tarball is available here (GNU/Linux packagers are welcome)

    For Android it is available on the Google play store.
