GNU's Bulletins

GNU Status Reports

Starting in 2011, an occasional GNU Status Report has been published with news for a number of packages. This is a partial revival of the original GNU's Bulletin (below), with the aim of providing GNU-wide information for as many packages as possible. This package-specific information supplements the FSF Bulletins and Free Software Supporter newsletter.

FSF Bulletins

FSF publishes a semi-annual FSF Bulletin. We hope that this new bulletin will help keep our donors and associate members informed in a new way, now that FSF's activities extend far beyond just the GNU project that we help sponsor. Electronic copies are available below at no cost. We request you to become a card-carrying associate member to avail the benefits and also to support the activities of the FSF.

GNU's Bulletins

GNU's Bulletin, volume 1, is no longer published.

The GNU's Bulletin, volume 1, was published by the Free Software Foundation in 24 semiannual numbers, 1986-1998. It contained a status report from and news about the GNU Project; news about other free software and documentation; information about FSF publications for sale; and other items likely to interest those who care about free software.

Electronic copies are available here at no charge. Single copies of most numbers are available on paper; we suggest that you make a small donation.

Anyone interested in a particular program should consult the information about GNU packages.
