After many months of hard work by OLPC engineers and the open source
community, XO Software Release 8.2.0 is available for download.
As of this week, all new XOs leaving the factory will be installed with
8.2 unless otherwise specified.
Installation instructions, an overview of the main new features and a
list of important open bugs can be found at:
This release includes:
- New and updated translations
- GUI access to basic settings (e.g. language, radio on/off, activity
update, and preferences for opening the frame)
- Easy access to all activities from the Home view
- Device status on the frame (network, power, audio)
- Backup and restore from XOs to XS
- Hundreds of bug fixes
This major redesign of the XO GUI and underlying software will be very
valuable for XO users.
We hope you can test and qualify 8.2.0 for your XO country as soon as
If there are serious issues preventing you from using 8.2, please get us
a list of critical items that you need resolved. In that case, please
let us know your schedule and any deadlines for upgrade and deployment.
Let us know when you can qualify the new release for your country and
when you can start using it.
