A new edition of the CrunchBang Monthly Newsletter been published. Issue #0904 covers the month of March '09 and features:
Public Relations - This section provides links to blogs and articles in which CrunchBang has been featured/discussed. It also contains a listing of CrunchBang related videos on YouTube.com, definitely worth a look!
CrunchBang IRC - Marcus has been examining the IRC logs and has made some amusing conclusions -- apparently CrunchBang users are great thinkers!
Development - Philip continues the tradition of answering questions about the development of CrunchBang. Remember, if you have any questions related to the development, please feel free to send us an email and we will try cover them.
Documentation - Ed has again scanned the forums for noteworthy stuff and he highlights his top picks for the month.
Artwork Section - The winner of the big CrunchBang Logo Competition is revealed! We also get a glimpse of the new proposed default GTK+ and Openbox themes for CrunchBang 9.04.01.
Tips, Tricks and Hints - Cruz has exceeded himself again, this time with a lot of CLI tips about the Bash history feature. Interesting stuff!
Translation - Max is taking over the bits and pieces of the translation area and working on having it all systematized. If you want to do something for the CrunchBang community, you might want to get enrolled in the translator corps.
IMPORTANT: if you wish to discuss the results of the logo competition, please do so in this thread. Thank you.
Congrats to the team. Another fine effort
I should stop exceeding myself.
Wouldn't want to set a precedence
All in an effort to learn...
Delves deeper into code...
The next issue #0905 is planned to be published on May 1.
It seems nearly all involved didn't post much during the previous month. Is it now dead? Or is it going to be revamped?
Currently everyone's got a lot going on at work, IRL, etc, we're currently we're looking at a quarterly distribution (correct me if I'm wrong Philip).
I know that Scrat's uber busy at work, Philip's just got married, and i'm deployed, so that's us three pretty much out of it for a bit, but it's my most sincere hope that the newsletter does not die.
Keep the faith!
