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 ⮞ 2018 News Archive, or b the News ⮞ Font News Archive.

Note : for 1998-2017 news items, see the News ⮞ 1998-2017 News Archive. For older 2018 news, see News ⮞ 2018 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 57 was deleted when Firefox 58 appeared.
