Trisquel on a Sugar TOAST

Editions published today include the GNOME based standard edition, the
LXDE mini edition, and the now officially supported Trisquel on a Sugar
TOAST[1] edition, designed for kids 0 to 12. It features the Sugar
Learning environment and a preselection of educational activities.

New Website

The improvements don't stop at the software. We are also unveiling a new
website theme, cleaner and more modern, to match the streamlined style
of the release. This is just the first change in a series of
improvements that will focus on giving the users a better community

New development process

We are also making big changes to the development process, to make it
easier for the community to contribute. The new code management
website[2] allows users to clone the code, hack and request their
changes to be reviewed and merged. This is connected to a whole new
continuous integration build system that will keep the distro up to date
with less manual intervention.
