> 5. FUDCon Brno 2008: Christoph Derndorfer reports from Brno that Sugar

> Marco Pesenti Gritti, Simon Schampijer, Bernie Innocenti—freshly back
> after 2 1/2 months of volunteering at OLE Nepal—Daniel Jahre,
> Christoph Derndorfer, and Greg deKoenigsberg). A presentation which

> Fedora community can support the ongoing efforts was held at
> Saturday's barcamp. In addition Tomeu, Marco, Simon and Bernie spent a
> lot of time refining the 0.84 roadmap and feature plan. There were
> also many lively discussions about the current state of Sugar / Sugar
> Labs and many ideas, plans and to-dos for the weeks and months ahead
> were written down. They will be posted on the IAEP mailing-list and
> appropriate places in the wiki once everyone has recovered from FUDCon

> 6. Sucrose: Simon Schampijer reports that the Sugar release team has
> released the 0.82.1 Sucrose stable release
> (http://sugarlabs.org/go/ReleaseTeam/Releases/Sucrose/0.82.1). Owners
> of an XO can test it in in latest joyride or the stable 8.2 branch >=
> 758.
> 7. Sugarbot: Zach Riggle reports progress on Sugarbot, a GUI
> automation utility for the automating the testing of Sugar Activities.
> Sugarbot supports
> continuous integration with Buildbot, so that multiple platforms and
> host configurations may be tested seamlessly; developers can more
> readily perform regression testing on their Activities, enhancing
> reliability and efficiency. A screencast of Sugarbot is available
> (
> http://code.google.com/p/sugarbot/downloads/detail?name=ScreenCast2.mp4&can=2&q=#makechanges
> )
> ad the package is available (http://code.google.com/p/sugarbot/).
> 8. Beagleboard: Koen Kooi reports that the basics (sugar, sugar-base,
> sugar-toolkit, sugar-presence-services and sugar-artwork) are now
> running on the beagleboard (See
> http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/sugar-running-ångström<http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/sugar-running-%C3%A5ngstr%C3%B6m>

> 9. X: Bert Freudenberg wrote the long-awaited X Activity (See
> org.laptop.wiki.XActivity and download it from
> http://wiki.laptop.org/images/b/b4/X-1.xo). Thus Sugar now supports an
> X11 desktop as an Activity that can run regular X11 applications.
> 10. Testing: There has been great feedback from various individuals
> and teams testing Sugar and Sugar Activities, including the
> "Wellington testers", Gary Martin, Douglas Ridgway, "Team Perú", and
> Mikus Grinbergs. Many thanks for your efforts.
> 11. FLOSS Manuals: The manuals for a number of Sugar Activities are
> now published (including manuals for Write, Terminal, Chat, Browse,
> Record, and TurtleArt). Please help us improve these manuals by going
> to http://en.flossmanuals.net/write where the editable versions
