We would be featuring these two talks:

Trisquel 7.0 release, (re)introducing Trisquel EDU

In this talk, the project founder Ruben Rodríguez will explain why the only tools that should be used in a school are those that allow and encourage the students to use, study, improve and share them freely.

As a way to show this idea, we will go through the release of the latest Trisquel version,...

This is an incremental upgrade release which includes all of the maintenance updates and bugfixes since the publication of Trisquel 6.0. Users that already have 6.0 installed don't need to reinstall. Just use the update manager or apt-get dist-upgrade.

The Trisquel GNU/Linux distribution was born nine years ago as a local college project but soon started to grow into a more general purpose operating system. Since 2008 it has been providing a libre Ubuntu based derivative, and has just published its latest major upgrade. Many challenges lay in the way of making a fully featured and fully free...

This long awaited release is based on Ubuntu Precise, and as usual comes full of free software goodness. We continue to provide an easy to use classic desktop experience complete with full featured browsing, office, communications and social networking utilities. Download it while it is hot!

Some months ago we set up a Jabber service at the Trisquel servers, and after testing it, we've decided to activate the creation of accounts for all our associate members.

To begin using this service, just point your client of choice to the member.trisquel.info sub-domain, entering the same login and password information you use to access your account at this website.

Don't forget to check SSL access for better privacy (using port 5223), and you're ready! If you have doubts about the XMPP protocol, Jabber or chatting matters in general, our associate member...

Hi, dear Trisquel friends!Trisquel Keychain

Two weeks ago we finally managed to send the first batch of Trisquel USB keys to our associated members. We sent a confirmation email once we had the envelopes ready as we thought that maybe some of you had changed postal address since then. As only about half of the messages sent got replied, we guess people change email addresses as well ;-)

So, if you received the message but thought it was some kind of...

This year's GNOME GUADEC international conference just started today, and will include Trisquel's participation by the hand of its director Rubén Rodriguez, who will give a lightning talk tomorrow 27th and a one hour BoF gathering next monday 30th.

Both events (entitled "The GNOME Desktop in Trisquel, not taking things for granted") will focus on the problems we encountered with our last release regarding GNOME 3x, mainly the requirements for 3D acceleration and how that relates to user freedom. We will try to make some constructive criticism and start a debate with the GNOME community.
