GNU Spotlight

A monthly look at updates and new releases in the GNU operating system.

Welcome to the GNU Spotlight archive. This is a yearly archive of all GNU Spotlight issues, in reverse chronological order. GNU Spotlight issues are originally published on the Free Software Foundation's community blog and featured in the Free Software Supporter.

Trivia: Since its inception, the GNU Spotlight has been curated by four GNU hackers so far: Karl Berry (February 2008–February 2015), Brandon Invergo (March 2015–January 2018), Mike Gerwitz (February 2018–February 2022), and Amin Bandali (March 2022–present).
