Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the version 1.1 of Sugarizer, a taste of Sugar for
any device.


New in this winter Sugarizer version:

   - MacOS: Sugarizer is now available as a native MacOS application. You
   could download the DMG package here [10].
   - Linux: Sugarizer is now available as a Linux application. It could be
   installed on any distribution using a deb or AppImage package downloadable
   here [10] or installed from the snapcraft app store here [6].
   - Journal improvements:
      - Add a sort palette: sort by creation date, modified date or item
      - Device to Journal integration: copy directly image/content from
      your device to the journal or download journal content on your device
      - Action to multiple items: remove or copy multiple items at the same
   - Full help tutorial: step by step tutorial from the initial screen,
   description of each activity in list view.
   - Ebook Reader activity: An epub reader into Sugarizer, access to a full
   library of classical books for children directly from your device.
   - Exerciser activity: Never been so easy to create your set of questions
   (MCQ, Cloze Text, ...) and share it with your friends.
   - Sprint Math activity: Challenge yourself on mental arithmetic or play
   with other users through the network.
   - Full offline version of Scratch: handle backgrounds, sounds and
   costumes from into Scratch source code without an Internet connection.
   - Better custom color integration: more activities (Speak, TamTam, Video
   Viewer, …) now take into account the buddy color. Your colors are your flag!
   - Better presence integration: more activities (Last One Loses, Maze, …)
   now could be shared on the network.
   - Better Journal integration: more activities (Blockrain, Stopwatch,
   Speak, QRCode, …) now save their state into Journal.
   - Improved stability: more than 20 fix on Sugarizer and activities.

A short animation of these features is visible here:

Three new schools will deploy Sugarizer in the begining of this year, why
not your school?

Sugarizer 1.1  is available on your browser [1] but also for your Android,
iOS, Linux, MacOS or Windows device. Download it from : Google Play [2],
Amazon Store [3], Apple Store [4], F-droid [5], snapcraft [6] and if you
don't like stores, you could also install it by yourself using instructions
on the Sugarizer website [7].

On Android, Sugarizer could also replace your launcher with Sugarizer OS

And if you want to deploy Sugarizer Server for your school, follow
instructions here [9].


P.S.: Special thanks for their contribution on this version to Mankirat
