A new magazine called Free Software Magazine will be published starting January 2002 by the Free Software Foundation, China Academy. The table of contents is already online, with the preface by Richard Stallman and topics include GNOME, GNUStep, GnuPG, Zope and others. The editor also calls for contributions from the free software community and projects like KDE. Apparently the first issue will be published in English and Simplified Chinese.

Articles previously published elsewhere can also be submitted (by the original authors/copyright holders) for publication in this magazine, preferably but not necessarily under the GFDL.

will elbrus design be free?, posted 15 Dec 2001 at 21:48 UTC by graham » (Journeyer)

I saw you've got an article by Babayan on the Elbrus - does that mean he's going to make the design free now? Wow! The last I saw he was still looking for capital, to make it as a proprietary design... A free processor design that's already tested and that competes with the latest Intel stuff would definitely be quite something (and not make Intel too happy!)
Or is the article just a reference to the fact that the Elbrus runs Linux because its (ahem) a processor? Guess we'll have to wait till the mag comes out..

How to get invovled, posted 16 Dec 2001 at 01:32 UTC by sye » (Journeyer)

How about invite Mr. Hong Feng to sign up on advogato ? My feeling is that most members here are already invovled one way or another with GNU/Linux. Personally, I consider that if he joins in this community, we will all be invovled in his affair.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
