News

This lists current news items — essentially those items in the home page’s News sidebar — with the most recent items first. The major purpose of this page is to hold recent news items until they are old enough to be moved to either (a) the News ⮞ 2017 News Archive, or (b) the News ⮞ Font News Archive.

Note : for 1998-2016 news items, see the News ⮞ 1998-2016 News Archive. For older 2017 news, see News ⮞ 2017 News Archive. For older font news, see News ⮞ Font News Archive.

Note : a news item is deleted from this list when a newer related news item is added; e.g., the news item reporting the release of Firefox 54 was deleted when Firefox 55 appeared.
