We have been very quiet recently. The good news is that we worked hard. New Gcompris software for kids is available as well as version 0.5.11 of Dr. Genius, our interactive geometry software.

In the Freeduc department we have worked hard on the new catalog system. The big differences are the multi-versions and multi-dependences as well the certification system to ensure each entry is a free software and only depends on free software. The new Freeduc catalog is at ( http://www.ofset.org/freeduc ), the old one is accessible from there. and we will work on the transition of the database as well the documentation.
