Independent Status Reports (April 13, 2004)

The Mozilla Newsletter is getting bigger and better. Upcoming plans include a second newsletter aimed at developers, other distribution formats, and more translations. Personally I am excited about the PDF version. Think of this situation; if even only one developer in all mid-to-large size software companies reads Mozilla Links, print out the newsletter and leave it in their company canteen or common area. Casual readers would have a look on their coffee break and who knows what could happen from there. Subscribe now for all the latest news and tips from the Mozilla world.

Note: If anyone has an update that they would like included in the next report, go here, or have any feedback on the structure of the reports in general, feel free to contact us.
