Release GCompris 0.81

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
