gcompris 2.4

Today we are releasing GCompris version 2.4.

We optimized the size of all the packages for all platforms and of the external word images set (~30% smaller).

If you disabled the automatic download and want to have the full images set, you should go to the configuration and click on "Download full word image set".

The text "Full word image set is installed" is displayed below when you have the latest version.

Norwegian Nynorsk introduction voices have been added by Karl Ove Hufthammer and Øystein Steffensen-Alværvik. Malayalam voices have been completed by Aiswarya Kaitheri Kandoth.

Many images have been updated for several activities.

We have also fixed a few bugs in Renewable energy, Watercycle and Logical associations activities.

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.

Thank you all,

gcompris 2.3

Today we are releasing GCompris version 2.3.

As we noticed that version 2.2 had been shipped with a bug that broke 3 activities ("Alphabet sequence", "Even and odd numbers" and "Numbers in order"), we decided to fix it quickly with a new maintenance release.

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.

Thank you all,

gcompris 2.0

Hi,
We are pleased to announce the release of GCompris 2.0. The educational value and the hours of fun and entertainment it provides children of all ages makes it the perfect present for these festive holidays.

It contains many new and improved activities. Below is a summary of included changes.

New activities:

  • Baby mouse is for children learning to interact with a computer for the first time.
  • Oware is a traditional African strategy game, it can be played against the computer or with a friend.
  • In Path encoding (absolute or relative) children need to give a set of directions to follow a defined path in a grid.
  • Path decoding (absolute or relative) is the opposite. Children have to create the path corresponding to a defined set of directions.
  • In Learn quantities, the goal is to count how many items are needed to represent a quantity.
  • In Learn decimal numbers, children cut units in pieces to learn the concept of decimal numbers.
  • Learn decimal additions and Learn decimal subtractions use the same principles as Learn decimal numbers, but this time to practice these operations.
  • With Ordering numbers, children can practice ordering numbers in ascending or descending order.
  • With Ordering letters, children can practice ordering letters in alphabetical order or in reverse order.
  • Ordering sentences is a step up in which children can practice reading and grammar by sorting out parts of a sentence.
  • Positions is an activity to learn the terms describing the relative position of an object.

Improved activities:

  • Analog electricity has a new set of tutorial level.
  • Programming maze has a new dataset containing loops operations, and its tutorial images are now translated.

  • In Solar system we now use Earth days and years as unit for all planets.

Hi,
To celebrate the 20 years of GCompris, we are pleased to announce the release of GCompris version 1.0.

This new version contains a new major feature: the addition of the Activity Settings menu with Dataset selection for more than 50 activities, allowing to choose more specifically what can be learned on the activities.

We also added 4 new activities:

  • The long awaited Analog Electricity activity which allows us to draw circuits and run their simulation.
  • Learn digits and two subactivities to learn additions and subtractions. The aim is to teach these concepts to younger children, with easy computations.
  • Baby keyboard where, when a character is typed on the keyboard, we display it on the screen and play the corresponding voice if it exists.
  • Gravity, which replaces the old Intro Gravity, explains better the concept and is more realistic.

  • You can find packages of this new version for GNU/Linux, Windows, MacOS and Raspberry Pi on the download page. This update will also be available soon in the Android Play store, the F-Droid repository and the Windows store. Note that the MacOS package is not notarized.

    You can check on this page the voices status in your language: https://gcompris.net/voicestats/. You can help us by providing a nice recording of your voice for all the missing entries in your native language.

    On the translation side, we have 22 languages fully supported: Basque, Breton, British English, Catalan, Catalan (Valencian), Chinese Traditional, Dutch, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Malayalam, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian.

    We also have 4 languages partially supported: Belarusian (85%), Brazilian Portuguese (92%), German (89%), Lithuanian (84%).

    As said in the previous news, we decided to only ship translations that are at least 80% completed to let the children have a better experience and not half translated software. Unfortunately, we had to drop the translation for: Estonian, Finnish, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Galician, Hindi, Macedonian, Norwegian Nynorsk, Russian, Slovak and Chinese Simplified.

    If your language is in the partially supported list, or is no more or not yet supported at all, and you want to help, please contact us (support@gcompris.net) 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 some feedback.


    Thank you all,
    Timothée & Johnny
