  • GCompris is back on Mac OSX
    2019-01-22

    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

    This new version contains 8 new activities:

  • Another activity based on calendar where the child has to find the date corresponding to a date + some days further/before this date (by Amit Sagtani))

  • Another similar activity with questions about family members
  • An extension of memory activities where the child has to match lowercase letters with their corresponding uppercase (by Aman Gupta)
  • The same activity in two players mode with Tux (by Aman Gupta)
  • The Gtk+ port and improved submarine activity where the child learns a basic overview on how to run a submarine (by Rudra Nil Basu)
  • The digital electricity activity where the child can use different components to create an electric schema. There is also a tutorial mode to explain how to use each component (started by Pulkit Gupta on previous GSoC, completed by Rudra Nil Basu)

  • We always have new features, content and bug fixes:

  • Updated graphics on several activities by Timothée Giet
  • Irish translation, voices and datasets by Séamus Ó Briain
  • Lot of improvements on removing overriding elements issues (score were hidden behind the bar...)

  • Add easy mode in letter in word with less words displayed
  • Add license page

  • You can find this new version on the download page.

    And some partially supported: Belarusian (87%), Brazilian Portuguese (87%), Breton (65%), Chinese Simplified (80%), Estonian (79%), Finnish (78%), Galician(87%), German (83%), Hindi (86%), Irish Gaelic (99%), Norwegian Nynorsk (86%), Russian (80%), Slovak (76%), Slovenian (70%), Polish (99%), Turkish (93%).

    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

    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.

    Thank you all,
    Timothée & Johnny
