Hi !

The 12th issue of the "Brave GNU World" column is online now. It can be found on the GNU Webpage and its mirrors or follow the links at the end of this posting.

This one is a very special release as it rounds up the first year of "Brave GNU World." During this year the column has picked up some remarkable features. Being released simultaneously online in five languages (English, German, French, Japanese and Spanish) and printed in the German "Linux-Magazin" as well as the "Linux Magazine France," the column is the monthly forum with the widest distribution worldwide as far as I know.

If you would like to receive mail about new issues directly, you can subscribe to the "Brave GNU World" announcement mailinglist. Just send mail to with "subscribe" in the *body*. The mailinglist is only for announcements that are related to the "Brave GNU World" and is of very low volume (between 1 and 4 mails a month).

The 12th issue covers the following topics:

  • GNU Pascal Compiler (a truly Free Pascal compiler)
  • Moodss (graphical system monitoring made easy)
  • Free Software in the French government (politics realizing the importance of Free Software)
  • One year of Brave GNU World (how the column came to pass, internal workings and plans for the future)

This column intends to provide a forum for all GNU maintainers, friends and associates and I am always open to suggestions. So if you

  • have questions about the GNU Project that might be of general interest
  • have a GNU Project and would like to improve its profile
  • would like to start a GNU Project you are looking for people to start it with
  • think something doesn't get the publicity it deserves
  • would like to see something made public

send mail to:

"Brave GNU World column@gnu.org"

This column is for everyone with an interest in Free Software, so don´t hesitate to contact me if your project is under the GPL/LGPL and you´d like to see it introduced here.
