Foresight Linux Newsletter, Issue 1 (29/9-2009)
Fresh start of Foresight Linux newsletter. It’s time to let the users what’s going on and what’s coming in the near future. Our newsletters were scarce in the past few months but we’re working on it and this will be improved with more regular updates from now on. We hope our users will find our newsletter useful and give a hint on what’s happening inside Foresight.

Gnome 2.28 is currently inside development repository. Still some minor issues, but relative stable. We can’t promise when it will be in stable repo, but we hope within a week or two.
New applications have been added, such as: Unetbootin, Moovida Media Center, nfoview, Taskcoash and more. Some are still under testing, but will soon be available.
Boots (Fedora Remix), has now a own space in Foresight Wiki.
You can install it easily with packagekit or though Terminal with this command: sudo conary update bleachbit
A number of new members have officially joined the Foresight community due to their outstanding contributions to Foresight.
