gcompris 3.1

Today we are releasing GCompris version 3.1.

It also contains some little translation update.

You can find packages of this new version for GNU/Linux, Windows, Raspberry Pi and macOS on the download page. This update will be available soon in the Android Play store, the F-Droid repository and the Windows store.

A special note about Ukrainian voices which have been added thanks to the organization "Save the Children" who funded the recording. They installed GCompris on 8000 tablets and 1000 laptops, and sent them to Digital learning Centers and other safe spaces for children in Ukraine.

Croatian voices have also been recorded by a contributor.

gcompris 2.0

Hei
Meil on hea meel teatada GCompris 2.0 väljaandmisest. Hariduslik väärtus ning lõbus ja meelelahutus, mida see pakub igas vanuses lastele, muudab selle ideaalseks kingituseks nende pidulike pühade jaoks.

See sisaldab palju uusi ja täiustatud tegevusi. Allpool on kokkuvõte lisatud muudatustest.

Uued tegevused:

  • Beebihiir on mõeldud lastele, kes teevad arvutit kasutades esimesi samme.
  • Oware on traditsiooniline Aafrika strateegia mäng, seda saab mängida nii arvuti või sõbraga.
  • Tee kodeerimises (absoluutne või suhteline) peavad lapsed andma juhiste kogumi, et järgida ruudustikus määratletud teed.
  • Tee dekodeerimine (absoluutne või suhteline) on vastupidine. Lapsed peavad looma tee, mis vastab määratletud juhiste kogumile.
  • Jaotises "Õpi koguseid" on eesmärk loendada, kui palju kaupu on koguse esindamiseks vaja.
  • Jaotises "Õpi kümnendarve" lõikavad lapsed kümnendarvu mõiste õppimiseks ühikuid tükkideks.
  • Kümnendarvude liitmise õppimine ja kümnendarvude lahutamise õppimine kasutavad samu põhimõtteid nagu kümnendarvude õppimine, kuid seekord neid liites ja lahutades.
  • Numbrite järjestamise abil saavad lapsed harjutada numbrite järjestamist kasvavas või kahanevas järjekorras.
  • Tähtede tellimise abil saavad lapsed harjutada tähtede järjestamist tähestikulises või vastupidises järjekorras.
  • Lausete järjestamine on samm, mille käigus lapsed saavad harjutada lugemist ja grammatikat, sorteerides lauseosi.
  • Positions is an activity to learn the terms describing the relative position of an object.

Täiustatud tegevused:

  • Analoogelektril on uus õpetuse tase.
  • Programmeerimislabürindil on uus andmekogum, mis sisaldab tsüklite toiminguid, ja selle õpetuspildid on nüüd tõlgitud.
  • Võlukübarate tegevustel on nooremate laste jaoks uued andmekogumid.
  • Päikesesüsteemis kasutame maa päevi ja aastaid kõigi planeetide ühikuna.
  • Geograafia tegevustes on kõik kaardid ümber joonistatud ja värskendatud, kasutades paremaid projektsioone ja svg-vormingus. Lisasime ka uued kaardid Aasia iga osa jaoks (ida, kagu, lõuna, kesk- ja lääneosa).
  • Uued pildid ja visuaalsed täiustused Hanoï tegevuste jaoks, Kadunud kiri, Rahalised tegevused, Fotokütt, Lihtne värv ja Tangram.
  • Meil on uus Inkscape'i laiendus, mis aitab luua svg kaarte ja mõistatusi (https://invent.kde.org/education/gcompris/-/tree/master/tools/inkscape).

... ja palju muid väikeseid parandusi ja täiustusi.


Tõlkepoolel sisaldab GCompris 2.0 33 keelt. 26 on täielikult tõlgitud: (aserbaidžaani, albaania, baski, brasiilia portugali, briti inglise, katalaani, katalaani (valencia), hiina traditsiooniline, hollandi, eesti, soome, prantsuse, kreeka, heebrea, ungari, indoneesia, itaalia, leedu, malajalami, poola, portugali, rumeenia, sloveeni, hispaania, rootsi, ukraina). 7 on osaliselt tõlgitud: (saksa (96%), norra nynorsk (96%), valgevene (83%), makedoonia (82%), bretooni (80%), türgi (76%) ja vene (76%).

Nagu tavaliselt, leiate selle uue versiooni paketid GNU/Linuxi, Windowsi, Androidi, Raspberry Pi ja macOS-i jaoks saidilt allalaadimisleht. See värskendus on peagi saadaval ka Android Play poes, F-Droidi hoidlas ja Windowsi poes.

Täname teid kõiki,
Timothée ja Johnny

gcompris 1.1

Hei,
Meil on suur rõõm teada anda, et GComprise 1.1 on lõpuks saadaval.

See on hooldusväljaanne, nii et iga GNU / Linuxi distribuutor kes levitab versiooni 1.0 peaks uuendama 1.1-le.

  • Lisatud on versioon Ubuntu Touchi jaoks.
  • Türgi piirkondade õigekiri on fikseeritud.
  • Lisasime Windowsi jaoks minimaalse .msi alternatiivse paketi.
