After a few months of gestation, this is the first update of DoudouLinux 'Hyperborea' 2.0. Of course it brings several improvements, updates, fixes and two new applications. Indeed we are particularly proud to announce that two new services are now officially available to our users and supporters. Our online shop, the Doudou Shop, is now open. It is managed by the DoudouLinux association, our non-profit organization dedicated at supporting the project growth and development.

The DoudouLinux development team has announced the availability of the final test release before the upcoming DoudouLinux 2.0, a Debian-based distribution with software made for young children: "We are glad to announce the latest development release 2013-02. This release is the latest one before the next stable version of DoudouLinux, 2.0 'Hyperborea' planned for April/May. As a result, this development release is very close to what 2.0 will be which also means it is already very stable. Indeed most of the changes we will bring to reach the version 2.0 are concerning translations and localization. The main changes are the following: totally new installer that can perform a standard Linux installation, with localization settings; live CD files can now be booted directly from an USB key; live CD localization settings are now in boot parameters for easier access....".
