+
+  <h2>Welcome</h2>
+
+  <p>Welcome to another issue of the Frugalware Linux community's newsletter.
+  We are nearly at the end of 2010 but still the activity continues at an
+  amazing speed. The two planned releases occurred on schedule and already
+  there are major improvements in progress for the next release - 1.4,
+  code-name Nexon. It's an exciting time to be a part of such a vibrant
+  community. We hope you enjoy reading about the latest events and
+  activities.</p>

+  <h2><img src="http://frugalware.org/images/newsletter/event.png"; align=
+  "left">Events etc</h2>
+
+  <p>Here is a selection of recent events and other items that you might find
+  interesting:</p>
+
+  <h3>Frugalware 1.4 pre-release 2 is available</h3>
+
+  <p>On 13 December 2010, VMiklos released the latest pre-release of Frugalware
+  1.4 . These pre-releases are a snapshot in time to be used for testing. The
+  aim is to ensure that no major bugs exist, something which can be difficult
+  with packages changing often in the 'current' package repository. If you have
+  the bandwidth and time available, <em>please</em> test this release. The more
+  bugs we find now, the better will be the final release. Bugs include not only
+  packages, but translations, documentation and the installer. If you find
+  anything, please report it in the <a href="http://bugs.frugalware.org/";>Bug
+  Tracker system</a>.</p>
+
+  <h3>Priyank returns...</h3>
+
+  <p>Frugalware developer Priyank took a break from his favourite Linux
+  distribution for a little over a year. He is the maintainer of many packages,
+  also the creator of GFpm (a graphical package manager) and FUN (Frugalware
+  Update Notifier). Yes, he literally put the FUN into Frugalware! As soon as
+  he returned, he was committing changes to various packages, including many
+  related to Xfce. Priyank, welcome back!</p>
+
+  <h3>Xfce 4.8 is on its way</h3>
+
+  <p>The Xfce development team are hard at work, 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's marked as a
+  pre-release, it already features much of the extra functionality planned for
+  4.8. Thanks to Frugalware developer Devil505, you can easily install this
+  release from a work in progress (WIP) repository. Refer to <a href=
+  "http://frugalware.org/people/devil505/blog";>his</a> blog entry for further
+  details.</p>
+
+  <p>If you don't already know what a WIP repository is, an explanation is
+  featured in newsletter issue <a href=
+  "http://frugalware.org/newsletter/issue45";>45</a>.</p>
+
+  <h3>We are moving</h3>
+
+  <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't too bad because all we
+  had to do was remove the cubicle walls to get more space. Soon even that
+  wasn'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'd love to show you around.</p>
+
+  <h3>Please help with newsletter translations</h3>
+
+  <p>Translations of the newsletter into French and Danish may not be available
+  for every issue. Those who would normally provide the translation simply
+  don't have the time at the moment. Apologies to those who read French or
+  Danish but as I'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, please send an email to the Frugalware
+  developers' mailing list. Your fellow French or Danish speakers would be
+  grateful, I'm sure.</p>

+
+    <dd>
+      <p>As you can see I tried several distros. One day a friend told me:
+      "Hey, what about trying Frugalware? I've never tried it but I've heard
+      good things about it.", so I thought "Why not?" and here I am.</p>

+
+  <h3>Colour your <em>man</em> output</h3>
+
+  <p>most is an output pager which has more sophisticated options than other
+  common pagers such as <em>less</em> and <em>more</em>. One of its features is
+  that it can apply colour to output of the <em>man</em> command. In the
+  default configuration, text which would normally be underlined appears in a
+  light green colour, while switches appear in red. The colours used by
+  <em>most</em> are easily changed. You can see for yourself what the output
+  looks like with the command <em>man most | most</em>. If you want to use
+  <em>most</em> as your default pager, add the following line to your .bashrc
+  file:</p>
+
+  <p><tt>PAGER=/usr/bin/most</tt></p>

+
+  <h2><img src="http://frugalware.org/images/newsletter/package.png"; align=
+  "left">Focus on Package(s)</h2>
+
+  <h3>autojump</h3>
+
+  <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't anyone created this before?" <a href=
+  "http://github.com/joelthelion/autojump";>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'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 <tt>j mp3</tt> 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 auto-completion feature so
+  you can enter <em>mp3</em> and press [Tab] and it will either complete the
+  directory'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>
+
+  <p>autojump doesn't interfere with the <em>cd</em> command'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>
+
+  <h3>ncdu</h3>
+
+  <p>There never seems to be quite enough storage space to store all that you
+  want to. Often it's a surprise when you find that a partition is nearly full.
+  The du' utility is an excellent tool which gives you total disk space used by
+  all subdirectories and their subdirectories. To find out just where disk
+  space is being used, you often need to navigate through the file system and
+  although you could do this with du, it's really not the best tool for the
+  job. *ncdu*, an Ncurses-based utility, is perfect for this task. When you
+  start it, ncdu analyses the storage usage in the current directory (assuming
+  one hasn't been specified at the command line) and shows the storage usage of
+  each sub-directory in both a percentage and bar display. If you want to
+  investigate a specific directory, you simply move the highlight bar to it and
+  press [Enter] and ncdu then displays the storage usage statistics for its
+  sub-directories. You can move either up or down the file system, seeing at a
+  glance which directories are using the most disk space. By default, each
+  directory is listed in descending order by disk space usage but you can
+  switch to sorting by name, and back again. If you find files or directories
+  that you want to delete, ncdu allows you to do that. It even provides
+  statistics on the actual disk space occupied by a file or directory, which is
+  usually greater than the total size of a file or folder and its contents. As
+  with the sorting option, you can switch the display between 'apparent' disk
+  space and actual disk space usage.</p>
+
+  <p>Like many utilities of its type, ncdu does precisely what its developer
+  says it does and does it very well. Thanks to Pingax for finding and
+  packaging such a useful application.</p><a href=
