Sugar 0.87.8 (release candidate) is in F-13 and a good set of packages has been built and is available. More activities are coming in over the time, none of which are an essential requirement, though. A comps package group has already been created, so 'yum groupinstall sugar-desktop' works, too.

Sugar 0.88.0 is now built and awaiting bodhi push. The feature is complete and ready for testing. The final Activity list to actually be shipped as part of the spin is still being finalised.

[edit] Detailed Description

We want to provide the new version of the Sugar desktop environment as well as more activities to allow further building upon the collaborative environment.

Users curious about the Sugar interface can test out Sugar on an existing Fedora system by selecting the Sugar environment from their display manager.

Developers interested in working on the Sugar interface or writing activities can have a development platform without needing an XO laptop.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

This feature will let all involved projects like Fedora and Sugar Labs profit, as it brings the latest and greatest bits from the Sugar community for education into Fedora. By making Sugar more readily available, it's easier for users to play with it, become involved, and contribute back. It will allow us to capture the interest in developing for OLPC and Sugar Labs on the Fedora platform.

[edit] Scope

  • Build updated Sugar packages
  • Build useful Sugar activities (tracking list)
  • Work on a spin, which isn't blocking this feature, though

[edit] Test Plan

Select Sugar as an option on the gdm screen for your account, log in, and use Sugar. Internet access through Browse should be possible. This will require the @sugar-desktop group to be installed, but should otherwise be straight-forward.

[edit] User Experience

Only noticeable by those wanting to use Sugar.

[edit] Dependencies

No further dependencies, thanks to the original work here.

[edit] Contingency Plan

None necessary. Many of the packages will be included in Fedora, but will be less useful without the work done to tie them together.

[edit] Documentation

[edit] Release Notes

Update Sugar to the latest version 0.88 in Fedora 13. This version provides major usability improvements for the first login screen and the control panel, as well as new features such as support for 3G networks. More content will be provided here once the feature list for Sugar 0.88 has been finalized upstream.
