Sugar Labs is a community-run software project whose mission is to produce, distribute, and support the use of Sugar, an open source desktop environment and learning platform.[2][3][4] Sugar Labs is a member of the Software Freedom Conservancy, an umbrella organization for free software (FLOSS) projects.[5]

About every six months, the Sugar Labs community releases a new version of the Sugar software. The most recent stable release is Version 0.108. Release Candidate Sucrose 0.110, an unstable release, is also available for testing.

The Sugar Labs community participates in events for teachers, students, and software developers interested in the Sugar software, such as the Montevideo Youth Summit[6] and Turtle Art Day.[7]

Sugar Labs also participates in Google Code-in,[8] which serves as an outlet for young programmers.
