preparing for the release of 4.8,
+due in January 2011. They have already made significant improvements, including
+complete rewrites of the menu, and adding support for remote, shared
+directories. So that Xfce users can experience and test version 4.8, the team
+have released Xfce 4.8 pre-release 2. Although it&#8217;s marked as a 
pre-release, it
+already features much of the extra functionality of 4.8. Thanks to Frugalware
+developer Devil505, you can easily install this release from a work-in-progress
+(WIP) repository. Refer to <a

+<h3 id="_we_are_moving">We are moving</h3>
+<div class="paragraph"><p>Frugalware started when VMiklos released 0.1 in 
November 2010. In the early days
+there were only a few developers and contributors, so we found accommodation
+in VMiklos' parents' garage. As the team grew though, we had to fit more
+people into a tiny space. At first it wasn&#8217;t too bad because all we had 
to do
+was remove the cubicle walls to get more space. Soon even that wasn&#8217;t 
enough and
+we finally got permission to move the car. Today everyone has a chair and is
+restricted to a 10-inch netbook, with agreement that everyone keeps their 
elbows
+at their side while typing. The growing number of developers and contributors,
+together with the increasing noise, power costs and the fact that the local
+donut and coffee shop closed, has meant that we had to move elsewhere. We have
+bought a building, named it the Frugal-plex (the letter <em>u</em> has a long 
<em>ooo</em>
+sound here) and placed a large sculpture in the shape of the Frugalware logo 
out
+the front for everyone to see. The new accommodation is great, with everyone
+having a large cubicle, also free soft drink provided and large lounge areas
+in which everyone can take a break when they need one. If you are ever in the
+area, please visit because we&#8217;d love to show you around.</p></div>

+<div class="paragraph"><p>Translations of the newsletter into French are not 
available at the moment.
+Those who would normally provide the translation simply don&#8217;t have the 
time at
+the moment. Apologies to those who read French but as I&#8217;m sure you 
understand,
+all work done in supporting Frugalware is done on a volunteer basis. Speaking
+of which, if anyone is willing and able to translate the newsletter into
+French, please send an email to the Frugalware developers' mailing 
list.</p></div>

+<div class="qlist qanda"><ol>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What&#8217;s your name?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    Paolo Cretaro.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What&#8217;s your IRC/forum nickname?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    Usually Melko.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+In what country do you live?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    I live in Italy (for now).
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What operating system(s) did you use before FW ?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    Before 2009 Windows, then I tried several GNU/Linux distros like OpenSuse,
+    Mandriva, Debian, Archlinux, Ubuntu, Pardus, Dreamlinux, Scientific Linux.
+    I actually have a netbook with Frugalware, Sabayon and Slackware.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+When did you start to use Linux (Frugalware)?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    I installed my first distro in 2009, before that I only used live CD (like
+    Knoppix) because I was too young to mess up with my parents' PC. Instead I
+    started with Frugalware some months ago, in April-March 2010.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What do you like most about Frugalware?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    First of all the name, I used to define myself a frugal person, so we make
+    a good couple. It&#8217;s simple, it&#8217;s fast and it has a rolling 
release tree,
+    what more do you want?
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What would you like to see changed in Frugalware?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    Mhm hard question. I like Frugalware as it is now, however I think that
+    it would be great to see more people contributing to this project.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+Do you do anything to spread knowledge of Frugalware?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    Not enough. Here Windows rules, so it&#8217;s not easy to open peoples' 
eyes to
+    free software.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+For what purpose(s) do you use Frugalware?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    For everything, from gaming to physical computations.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+How did you find Frugalware - e.g. a friend/Google search?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    As you can see I tried several distros. One day a friend told me: "Hey,
+    what about trying Frugalware? I&#8217;ve never tried it but I&#8217;ve 
heard good
+    things about it.", so I thought "Why not?" and here I am.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+What do you do when you&#8217;re not using Frugalware?
+</em></p>
+<p>
+    I mainly study physics, but also play guitar and take pictures, sometimes
+    I also post them on flickr.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><em>
+Please show us a screenshot of your desktop(s)

+<p>
+    My desktop has nothing special, I&#8217;m not a big fan of appearance.

+in red. The colours used by <em>most</em> are easily changed. You can see for 
yourself

+<div class="paragraph"><p>Thanks to Frugalware contributor Fabien, we have a 
very useful utility added to
+Frugalware. This is one of those applications which, when I read its
+description, made me think, "Why hasn&#8217;t anyone created this before?"
+<a href="http://autojump.fixme.com";>autojump</a> is a command-line utility 
which allows you
+to easily cd or <em>jump</em> to a directory you have been to before. The 
difference
+between using <em>cd</em> and autojump is that you only need to give autojump 
part of
+the destination directory&#8217;s name, which saves time and hassle. If you 
often
+<em>cd</em> to the directory containing your MP3 files, for example, you might 
enter
+<em>j mp3</em> and you would then be in that directory. If you had visited 
more than
+one folder which contained the letters <em>mp3</em>, autojump would take you 
to the
+one which you had visited most. It also features an autocompletion feature so
+you can enter <em>mp3</em> and press [Tab] and it will either complete the 
directory&#8217;s
+name if there is just one match, or show you a list of those which match your
+criteria. It even handles removable media because if the media is not available
+when you use autojump, any matches on the removable media are 
ignored.</p></div>
+<div class="paragraph"><p>autojump doesn&#8217;t interfere with the 
<em>cd</em> command&#8217;s normal operation so you can
+choose between the two. If you want to get to somewhere you have been before,
+you can use autojump, otherwise use <em>cd</em>. If you need to go back there 
later,
+autojump can take you there quickly and easily. Try it and see for yourself
+how much time this little utility saves you.</p></div>
