There've been a lot of upgrades going on in the LQ Network, so I wanted to send a quick summary in case you missed anything.

LQ Wiki:
The LQ Wiki recently received a code upgrade and minor face lift, where numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes were applied. We're now 10 articles away from our next goal of 3,000. The site now also accepts OpenID. Help us build the largest general Linux knowledge base on the web.

Your favorite Linux download site has now facilitated over 3,000,000 Linux distribution downloads.

LQ Radio:
The LQ Radio site also recently received a code upgrade and minor face lift, where numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes were applied. We plan to bring back the LQ Radio Interview Series in the near future (and already have some fabulous guests lined up). We've also expanded our ogg support. Add this feed ( ) to your favorite podcatcher. A new podcast will be posted on 3/15.

All three of these sections recently received a code upgrade and have enhanced usability and more features. We plan on significantly expanding these original and user generated content sections this year.

LQ Screenshots:

Jeremy's Blog:
I just moved my blog over to Wordpress and will be adding a bunch of new features and widgets in the comings days. Add this RSS feed ( to your favorite aggregator.

As you can see, we've been fairly busy the last few weeks. In the coming weeks I'm happy to announce that the main forum will hopefully be receiving the code upgrade I've long promised. Once that's done, we'll work through the backlog of feature requests that we've gotten, but if you have a suggestion for a new feature or even a new site, please don't hesitate to let us know. I'd like to once again thank each and every LQ member for making LQ one of the premier Open Source resources available. Visit to discuss this update.
