Issue #13 a.k.a. "Birthday release" of Georg's Brave GNU World, the monthly GNU forum has been released Hi !

Although this happens to be my birthday I took the time to put issue #13 of the "Brave GNU World" column online. So I guess one could also dub it the "Birthday release." :-)

The column can - as usual - be found on the GNU Webpage and its mirrors. Otherwise just follow the links at the end of this posting.

Georg's Brave GNU World is a monthly column which is being released simultaneously in five languages (English, German, French, Japanese and Spanish) on the web and printed in the German "Linux-Magazin" as well as the "Linux Magazine France." This makes it the monthly column 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 brave-gnu-world-request@gnu.org 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 2 mails a month).

The 13th issue covers the following topics:

  • Gcompte (managing your personal finances)
  • Scwm (an extremely extensible window manager)
  • eev (yet another way to use your Emacs)
  • Pliant (a new programming language framework and system)
  • Worldwide Botanical Database (a "Free Science" type project)

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.
