Hello!

I will send the school the latest release of Kiwix (which is version 0.9
RC1). BTW,am informed that it will be released today. It has some new nice
feats that I bet they will find useful some plus bug fixes.

To mention just but a few;

   - Has a new theme that a user can switch to called ''Evolution''
   - Html5 Video support
   - Indexing improvement......so much more

To view the change log go to [1] and you are also welcome to test the new
version that can be downloaded here [2]

Cheers,
//Stephen
