GNU Spotlight with Brandon Invergo: Sixteen new GNU releases!
16 new GNU releases in the last month (as of August 24, 2015):
For announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu mailing list: http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnu.
To download: nearly all GNU software is available from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/, or preferably one of its mirrors from http://www.gnu.org/prep/ftp.html. You can use the url http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ to be automatically redirected to a (hopefully) nearby and up-to-date mirror.
This month, we welcome Scotty Moran as the new maintainer of GNU sysutils and Arthur Schwarz as the maintainer of the new GNU package gSlip.
A number of GNU packages, as well as the GNU operating system as a whole, are looking for maintainers and other assistance: please see http://www.gnu.org/server/takeaction.html#unmaint if you'd like to help. The general page on how to help GNU is at http://www.gnu.org/help/help.html.
If you have a working or partly working program that you'd like to offer to the GNU project as a GNU package, see http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
As always, please feel free to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any GNUish questions or suggestions for future installments.
