The GCompris project, which provides a "high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10", has announced its 1.0 release, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the project. It includes more than 100 activities, a new Dataset selection in the Activity Settings menu for more than 50 activities, and four new activities, including an Analog Electricity activity to simulate and learn about circuits. KDE.news covered the release: "We have built the activities to follow the principles of 'nothing succeeds like success' and that children, when learning, should be challenged, but not made to feel threatened. Thus, GCompris congratulates, but does not reprimand; all the characters the child interacts with are friendly and supportive; activities are brightly colored, contain encouraging voices and play upbeat, but soothing music.
The hardware requirements for running GCompris are extremely low and it will run fine on older computers or low-powered machines, like the Raspberry Pi. This saves you and your school from having to invest in new and expensive equipment and it is also eco-friendly, as it reduces the amount of technological waste that is produced when you have to renew computers to adapt to more and more power-hungry software. GCompris works on Windows, Android and GNU/Linux computers, and on desktop machines, laptops, tablets and phones."
