Version 12.0 of the OSGeoLive GIS software collection has been released, and was distributed at FOSS4G 2018, the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. OSGeoLive is a Lubuntu-based distribution of geospatial open source software, available via a Virtual Machine, USB and DVD. It is pre-installed with robust open source geospatial software, which can be trialled without installing anything. The software is now a Lubuntu 18.04 Long Term Support (LTS) release. This release also incorporated the Transifex Translation tool, and the documentation generation process has been made more efficient. It comes with close to 50 quality geospatial open source applications installed and pre-configured; free world maps and sample datasets; project overview and step-by-step Quickstart for each application; presentations of all applications, along with speaker’s script; and translations to multiple languages. The update also includes a number of fixes such as for data links, Django issues and GeoNode upload errors.
