I'm happy to announce a beta release of the Creative Commons licensing 
activity for the XO.

This activity is a comic reader that includes simple English text to 
explain the images.  This is based on a comic we published a few weeks 
back that was written with the XO audience in mind: 
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Sharing_Creative_Works

It also includes a license chooser; right now, the results of that license 
choice aren't used by anything, but we hope to work with XO developers who 
want to integrate CC license choosing into their activities - they can 
perhaps use the license chooser we bundle, and they can perhaps use as a 
default the license chosen by the child at the end of the CC Licensing 
activity.

You can download the .xo at 
http://labs.creativecommons.org/~paulproteus/olpc/License-3.xo .  It even 
has a proper NEWS file.

I encourage you all to grab the .xo and give it a whirl!

P.S. If you want to know how this compares to the release a few weeks ago, 
here's the NEWS file:
