To get announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu mailing list: http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnu. Nearly all GNU software is available from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/, or preferably one of its mirrors (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.

I'd like to specially mention the first release of GNU pyconfigure http://www.gnu.org/software/pyconfigure/, which provides developers using Python's setup.py for their package with ways to support the standard GNU configure && make installation method.

Another special mention for Ludovic Courtes for his new GNU package (system) Guix, http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/, going along with all his work on Guile.

We also welcome Dimitry Bogatov as the new maintainer of GNU Thales, Brian Lane and Phillip Susi as new co-maintainers of GNU parted, Hellekin and Daniel Reusche as new co-maintainers of GNU social, Fabio Gonzalez as the author and maintainer of the new GNU package fcrypt, and Paulo Cesar Pereira de Andrade as the new maintainer of GNU lightning.

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. To submit new packages to the GNU operating system, see http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.

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