gbrainy 1.1

Here we have gbrainy 1.1, six months after the previous version. gbrainy is a brain teaser game and trainer to have fun and to keep your brain trained. It provides the following types of games:

  • Logic puzzles. Games designed to challenge your reasoning and thinking skills.
  • Mental calculation. Games based on arithmetical operations designed to prove your mental calculation skills.
  • Memory trainers. Games designed to challenge your short term memory.

What is new in version 1.1 from the NEWS file:

Version 1.1
* 4 new games
* Use Mono.Addins for extending gbrainy
* New translations
* Bug fixes

gbrainy 1.1 is available for download in source code from:

      (md5sum 2c2ec926ad461c6f1a6da391615824ca)

Additionally, gbrainy is available for all major Linux distributions.

On top of the already existant translations, in this version debut the Chinese Simplified translation by Gan Lu and Brazilian Portuguese translation by Flamarion Jorge and Jonh Wendell. 

gbrainy virtual appliance

Jordi Massaguer has put together a virtual appliance for gbrainy 1.0 built with OpenSuse Studio. It boots into it, in fullscreen, and you can train your brain with multiple exercises.

gbrainy extensions

Starting with version 1.1 you can extend gbrainy easily with new games that you develop as independent extensions. These are external assembly files that gbrainy recognizes at runtime. The extensibility capabilities are provided by Mono.Addins framework. You do not need to recompile gbrainy. In gbrainy project's page you have more information on how to build extensions.

At gbrainy source code repository there is a directory called sample extensions that contain three sample extensions. Extensions are cool because empower any users to extend gbrainy with his own games. If you have questions building extensions, suggestions or you have a cool extension to share, let us know in the gbrainy public group.

Thanks to everyone that has given help or feedback to this version: Siegfried-Angel Gevatter, Sanjeev Nath, Jorge Gonzalez, Wolfgang Stöggl, Jaroslav Ryník, Núria Pedrola and Jordi Irazuzta. You guys rock.

Hola, Jordi.

Saps si entrarà aquesta nova versió en les noves versions de les distribucions que sortiran? Per exemple, a mi m’interessa saber si entrarà a Ubuntu 9.04, i realment no sé com va això. No sé quan agafa Canonical les noves versions que van sortint dels programes.

Hola Oriol,

Posaré un paquet actualitzat a Debian unstable d’aquí a uns dies. En quant a l’Ubuntu, puc provar-ho però és difícil que aquesta versió entri a la Jaunty (l’Ubuntu 9.04); ja fa casi un més que no s’accepta l’entrada de noves funcionalitats sense causa justificada (veure Feature Freeze a

Hello Jordi,

I completely forgot about this. I have been very busy lately. I have updated the post to reflect also your work. Thanks. Jordi,
