Autodesk Sponsors MapGuide LiveDVD Project

As part of its ongoing commitment to the open source community, Autodesk has
subcontracted OTX Systems to place MapGuide Open Source on the OSGeo LiveDVD 4.0
in preparation for FOSS4G 2010. Including MapGuide on LiveDVD 4.0 will make
MapGuide more accessible to individuals interested in Web GIS technologies.

The LiveDVD project also includes Ubuntu packaging for MapGuide, Maestro,
and a subset of FDO Providers. The entire package set will be available on the OSGeo
downloads site with corresponding installation scripts. This will make MapGuide,
Maestro, and FDO easily accessible to the Ubuntu GIS community.

Very good to hear Zac! Been hoping for something like this and will be glad to test when/if needed.
