OSGeo-Live 6.0 is released. For this release,  all OSGeo-Live java applications have been successfully migrated to OpenJDK 7. Migration to OpenJDK was driven by Oracle’s announcement that including Sun Java in Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu, or OSGeo-Live, is no longer allowed. In addition, the Xubuntu base has been upgraded to 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support).

With this version, you can try running instances of the following 52°North service implementations:

  • 52°North SOS version 3.5 Just go to GeospatialWeb ServicesStart 52°North SOS to start testing. Firefox will open with three tabs:
    • a client to test the SOS
    • a quickstart page to get things started
    • a documentation page about the 52°North SOS implementation
  • 52°North WPS version 3.0 Just go to GeospatialWeb ServicesStart 52°North WPS to start testing:
    • a simple client to test the WPS
    • a quickstart page to get things started
    • a documentation page about the 52°North WPS implementation
  • 52°North WSS version 2.2.0 Just go to GeospatialWeb ServicesStart 52°North WSS to start testing:
    • a client to test the WSS
    • a quickstart page to get things started
    • a documentation page about the 52°North WSS implementation

Just give it a try and test a lot of geospatial applications without the need to install any of them. The OSGeo Live DVD contains software for the following categories, and it is all FOSS:

Online demo resources are available on the demo servers of the communities:

I hope you enjoy testing our SOS, WPS and WSS.
