just in time for Christmas, we are pleased to announce the new GCompris version 0.70.
It is an important release because we officially drop the Gtk+ version for Windows to use the Qt one.
Everyone who bought the full version for the last two years will get a new activation code in a few days.
Also, for people who like numbers, we are beyond 100000 downloads in the google play store.
This new version contains 8 new activities, half of them being created by last Google Summer of Code students:
an activity where the child has to move elements to build a given model (crane by Stefan Toncu)
an activity to draw the numbers from 0 to 9 (drawnumbers by Nitish Chauhan)
an activity to draw the letters (drawletters by Nitish Chauhan)
an activity to find on which words a given letter belongs (letter-in-word by Akshat Tandon)
the nine men morris game against Tux (nine_men_morris by Pulkit Gupta)
the nine men morris game with a friend (nine_men_morris_2_players by Pulkit Gupta)
an activity to learn to split a given number of candies amonst children (share by Stefan Toncu)
an activity to learn roman numbers (roman_numerals by Bruno Coudoin)
