Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB) 6.3 is a big step forward allowing schools and
clinics around the world to DIY their very own friendly digital libraries!

IIAB 6.3 (or very recent pre-releases) have already been brought to Ghana,
Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua and Malaysia -- while implementation
work is currently ongoing for Lebanon and Guatemala.

We're very honored that IIAB 6.3 is increasingly used in medical education
(post-secondary and clinical contexts) as well as for children's primary
and secondary education.

Bonus: we kept our release cycle < 3 months and can hopefully make that
even tighter still in coming months -- picking up the pace with incremental
improvement directly driven by "fieldback" requests -- from dedicated
education communities on almost every continent.

Please see the Release Notes here, if you too want to build your own
digital/community library:


*Thanks all for your ongoing feedback as ~30 of us from the wider
Internet-in-a-Box community meet mid-August in Montreal and Potsdam, NY for
our http://OFF.NETWORK <http://OFF.NETWORK> Content Hackathon (in
conjunction with Kiwix, Wikimedia & KA Lite / Learning Equality).  To push
this much further afield ~ ya ain't seen nothing yet!  As new kinds of
handheld community libraries quickly now blossom, that none of us 20th
century folk ever imagined were even possible (-:*
