GNU spotlight with Karl Berry (January 2012)

by mattl Contributions Published on Jan 31, 2012 11:06 PM
A monthly update on all things in the GNU project

In addition to the usual releases, a new installment of the Lilypond Report has been published. It includes release news, an interview, Prelude #1 in Scheme, and more.

To get announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu mailing list. Nearly all GNU software is available from, or preferably one of its mirrors. You can use the URL to be automatically redirected to a (hopefully) nearby and up-to-date mirror.

Several GNU packages are looking for maintainers and other assistance. There's also a general page on how to help GNU, and information on how to submit new packages to GNU.

As always, please feel free to write to me,, with any GNUish questions or suggestions for future installments.
