+GNU FreeFont release 20100919 
+Several language scripts were added:
+    Cherokee, Osmanya, Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics, Tifinagh, 
Armenian (serif), Vai, Kayah Li 
+    Coptic, Glagolitic
+    Buginese and Persian were patched.
+    Many characters were added to old Cyrillic ranges.
+Sinhala was replaced by a version taken from the TeX font 'sinh' by Yannis 
+Several of the symbol ranges were expanded, and a few glyphs were corrected.
+Several technical improvements were made to font tables, some of which should 
improve display.

+Gawk has been seeing lots of progress recently.  A major new release
+is in the works and should be ready within a few more months.  New
+stuff includes:
+- New internals, providing along with them a debugger!
+- Built-in file inclusion
+- Indirect function calls
+- BEGINFILE and ENDFILE patterns
+- FPAT variable for content-based field splitting
+- IPv6 support
+- Arrays of arrays
+- LOTS of code cleanup and doc clean up too
+- Other features / changes, see NEWS in the git repo
+- Moved to GIT from CVS.
+I wrote an article about gawk 4.0 for Linux Journal which they've accepted
+and which should be appearing sometime in the first half of 2011.

+I'm working to rewrite GNUtrition in C with SQLite instead of
+depending on an external SQL server, a modern UI, and some extra
+features. I plan to unveil the new version at LibrePlanet in March.
+The food database is being upgraded. The current version of GNUtrition
+uses a very old version (from 1999) so it's time to upgrade. This
+means more information on more foods (I think it's over 2,000 new food
address@hidden XBoard
address@hidden XBoard (@url{})
+Over the last year XBoard/Winboard development has seen three new
+releases fixing lots of bugs and including many new features with
+another major release just around the corner. We now support many more
+variations of chess (xiangqi, shogi, makruk, as well as better support
+for variations like crazyhouse, bughouse and many more). Also the
+support for computer chess has been improved.
+An ongoing effort is to merge the code of XBoard and Winboard back into
+one code base and adapt it to use GTK for the GUI front end. If you are
+interested in this and are willing to help, feel free to contact us at
address@hidden We can always need more help ;)  You can of course
+also contact us to discuss other issues/ideas for XBoard/Winboard.
