Announcing Maple Syrup Alpha!

The first version of "Maple Syrup" is available!

Built on Release-Candidate 1 of Maine's Open 1-to-1 project and Sugar, the educational software stack maintained by sugarlabs, the Maple Syrup image provides a teacher and classroom tested collection of educational software for grades K-12.

The alpha is available as an ISO image allowing use as a LiveCD or as a bootable, persistent, USB stick. This means you can try it out without making changes to the host computer.

Grab the file here. The MD5 checksum is 0985e4abfebb790d8008b1c82c8b68aa.

When downloading, keep in mind that the ISO is a large file - it may be best to let it run overnight!

As always, feedback and bug reports are appreciated!

  1. Okay, Ian, after I download the file, what do I do next? (Double-clicking didn't work, so I am not officially out of my depth!)
