Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the sixth version (0.6) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.


Main features in this new version:

   - Neighborhood view and presence : Sugarizer now include the
   neighborhood view to allow users to see other users connected on the same
   server and share activities with them. Only one activity currently use this
   feature: Chat Prototype from Suraj. Launch the activity, share it, then
   your friend could join the chat whatever device they use. Note that the
   Sugarizer presence API need a Sugarizer server (remote or local). A default
   service is available on server.sugarizer.org
   - New TamTam Micro activity: Let children (re)discover the joy to play
   with the TamTam activity and hear more than 70 different sounds.
   - iOS support: Yes, Sugarizer is now available too on this devil but so
   popular platform. Launch the Apple Store, look for Sugarizer [1], download
   it and "voilà" Sugarizer is now ready to run on your iPad or your iPhone.
   - Chrome App support: Are you a fan of Chrome OS or are you just a
   Chrome user that don't want to waste time into complex install procedure ?
   That's right. With Sugarizer as Chrome App, Sugarizer is now one click far
   from your Chrome environment. Just go to the Chrome Web Store [2], download
   it and Sugarizer is ready to start with full features without impact on
   your work environment. And of course, it works on any platform where Chrome
   is available.
   - F-Droid support: F-Droid is the repository of Open Source applications
   for Android. No compromise: only open source applications - compiled from
   source - are allowed inside. Sugarizer had to be there.
   - Device integration: Sugarizer on any device don't mean bad integration
   with hosting device. In Sugarizer 0.6, Puneet show you in the Cordova
   activity (pick in from the List view) a Sugar Web developer could handle
   device features (accelerometer, camera, network, …) in its activity.

Of course for your Android and Firefox OS devices, Sugarizer 0.6 is
available too on all others app stores: Google Play, Amazon Store and
Firefox Market Place. And if you don't like stores, you could also install
it by yourself using instructions on the Sugarizer website.

Other features of Sugarizer 0.6:

   - Icon activity color in Journal and Home view now vary depending of
   last user color
   - An initialization screen let you set preference at startup
   - Sugarizer automatically detect language at first launch
   - server.sugarizer.org is now the default server
   - Igbo and Yoruba localization
   - Arabic localization (*)
   - Japanese localization (*)
