GCompris 0.96 릴리스
2019-03-03 
gcompris banner

안녕하세요,
GCompris 버전 0.96의 출시를 즐겁게 알립니다.

이 새 버전에는 여러 언어 번역 업데이트와 몇 가지 버그 수정이 포함되어 있습니다.

상당 부분 업데이트된 번역:

  • 포르투갈어(브라질)(100%)
  • 브르타뉴어(100%)
  • 핀란드어(90%)
  • 인도네시아어(100%)
  • 노르웨이어(뉘노르스크)(97%)
  • 폴란드어(100%)

  • 이제 다음 19개 언어를 완벽하게 지원합니다: 갈리시아어, 그리스어, 네덜란드어, 루마니아어, 말라얄람어, 발렌시아 카탈루냐어, 브라질 포르투갈어, 브르타뉴어, 스웨덴어, 영국 영어, 우크라이나어, 이탈리아어, 인도네시아어, 중국어 번체, 카탈루냐어, 포르투갈어, 폴란드어, 프랑스어, 헝가리어.

    아직 부분적으로 지원하는 언어는 15개입니다: 노르웨이어 뉘노르스크(97%), 독일어(84%), 러시아어(77%), 바스크어(78%), 벨라루스어(68%), 스코틀랜드 게일어(70%), 스페인어(93%), 슬로바키아어(62%), 슬로베니아어(56%), 아일랜드 게일어(82%), 에스토니아어(62%), 중국어 간체(69%), 터키어(73%), 핀란드어(90%), 힌디어(76%).

    이 릴리스에서는 80% 미만으로 번역률이 떨어진 언어를 유지하기로 다시 결정했습니다. 만약 다음 언어 번역이 다음 릴리스까지 업데이트되지 않는다면 아쉽게도 다음 릴리스에서는 번역을 삭제할 것입니다: 러시아어, 바스크어, 벨라루스어, 스코틀랜드 게일어, 슬로바키아어, 슬로베니아어, 에스토니아어, 중국어 간체, 터키어, 힌디어.

    Windows 버전의 경우 소프트웨어 렌더링 모드로 시작하는 시작 메뉴에 GCompris(안전 모드)라는 새 항목이 추가됩니다. OpenGL 지원의 자동 감지가 올바르게 작동하지 않는 경우가 있어서 추가했습니다. 이제 사용자는 설정 파일을 변경하지 않고도 OpenGL과 소프트웨어 렌더링 중에서 쉽게 선택할 수 있습니다.

    알려진 문제점:

  • 다운로드 진행 표시기가 더 이상 작동하지 않습니다. HTTPS로 파일을 호스팅하도록 변경하면서 생긴 부작용입니다. 다음 릴리스에서 개선할 예정입니다.

  • GNU/Linux 배포판 패키지 담당자를 위한 메모: 이 새 버전부터는 음성과 추가 이미지를 다운로드하려면 OpenSSL이 필요합니다.

    항상 그랬듯이 새로운 버전을 다운로드하려면 다운로드 페이지를 방문하십시오. 곧 Android 및 Windows 스토어에서도 사용할 수 있습니다.

    모두에게 감사드립니다.

    GCompris is back on Mac OSX
    2019-01-22 
    gcompris banner

    Hi,
    Good news for Mac users: we finally have a new version of GCompris for OSX !

    The last version of GCompris for OSX was 0.52 from 3 years ago. Since then, no one in the team could update it because of the lack of hardware. Thanks to Boudewijn from the Krita Foundation, we have now a little mac mini, old but good enough to build our packages. It took me several days of dedicated work to learn this new platform and update the build system to produce a distributable package.


    This package was built and tested on OSX 10.13. If you can try it on a different OSX version, please let us know if it works.

    The .dmg installer is available on the download page.

    This time we decided to stop distributing it from the app-store. About the iOS version, it will take some more time before I can look at it, and we still don't have any device to test.

    Notes: this package is based on GCompris version 0.95. It is built with the latest version of Qt (5.12.0) which introduced some regressions. We fixed all of those issues, but some of those fixes are only in the development version for now. A few activities are broken (checkers, braille, braille_alphabet, algorithm), but we will make a new release next month that will also address those little issues.

    Thank you all,
    Timothée - GCompris team

    Release GCompris 0.95
    2018-12-20 
    gcompris banner

    Hi,
    We are pleased to announce the release of GCompris version 0.95.

    This new version contains 7 new activities:

  • Binary bulbs: to learn how to count in binary
  • Railroad activity: to train visual memory
  • Solar System: to learn about our solar system
  • Name that Note: to learn to recognize musical notes and their names
  • Play Piano: to train reading notes on a score
  • Play Rhythm: to train following a musical rhythm
  • Piano Composition: to learn composition of a musical score

  • You can find packages of this new version for GNU/Linux and Windows on the download page. This update will also be available in a few days on the Android and Windows store. For Raspberry Pi, we'll provide an installer in the beginning of 2019. The updated versions for MacOS and iOS are still not available, we hope to be able to release those during next year.

    On the translation side, we have 15 languages fully supported: British English, Catalan, Catalan (Valencian), Chinese Traditional, Dutch, French, Galician, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Malayalam, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish, Ukrainian.
    We also have 19 languages partially supported: Basque (78%), Belarusian (69%), Brazilian Portuguese (74%), Breton (54%), Chinese Simplified (69%), Estonian (63%), Finnish (61%), German (86%), Hindi (77%), Indonesian (84%), Irish Gaelic (82%), Norwegian Nynorsk (89%), Russian (74%), Scottish Gaelic (71%), Slovak (62%), Slovenian (57%), Spanish (95%), Polish (94%), Turkish (74%).

    Usually we only ship translations that are at least 80% complete. However for this release, several translations dropped below 80%. We decided to keep them exceptionally for this release, and hope to see former or new translators complete those translations. If we get updates or new translations, we will make a release update for those.
    So if your language is in the partially supported list, or is not yet supported at all, and you want to help, please contact us and we will give you instructions to get started translating.

    Another way to help is to write some posts in your community about GCompris, and don't hesitate to give us feedbacks.

    Notes:

  • On GNU/Linux and Windows, we used to have two separate installers for OpenGL and software rendering. Now both rendering modes are available from the same installer. By default we try to use the OpenGL rendering, and if not working, we show an error and switch to the software rendering. This automatic switch is new and may not work everywhere. In case it doesn't, you can manually select the software rendering mode by editing the configuration file (in ~/.config/gcompris/gcompris-qt.conf for Linux, %LocalAppData%/gcompris/GCompris.conf for Windows): find the line "renderer=auto", replace auto with software and save the file. We are also interested to get some feedback to help us improve this auto-detection.
  • For the Malayalam language, we noticed some issues with the default font "Andika-R". We recommend Malayalam users to select the font Noto-Sans-Malayalam from the application menu (if it is not available in the list you need to install this font on your system to be able to select it).
  • Thank you all,

    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

    Release GCompris Qt 0.81
    2017-09-26 
    gcompris banner

    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 GNU/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 GNU/Linux installers are signed. You can retrieve the public key over https here: 0x63d7264c05687d7e.asc.

    Thank you all,
    Timothée & Johnny
