Tomorrow will be the 10th anniversary of the OpenStep specification release.
I think that it could be interesting to prepare stories for news sites about it (and about GNUstep, of course :-)
Ideas ?

In addition to an article, we can declare and release GNUstep 1.0 as an open
successor to the OpenStep - multiplatform API.

What do you say?

Well, I think it would be nice, but I'm not sure we can bump up the number like 
that.. ?

Regarding the article, I think we need:
- a part about OpenStep, history, etc.
- GNUstep's history (with emphasis on the recent progresses, obviously..)
- Presentation of GNUstep possibilities

While keeping things not too long. We can perhaps have a medium-length article 
hosted on,
and a short sumary to submit to websites ?
Sadly I doubt I'll have the time this evening to do much, but it could be good 
to reuse the marketing documents
and some articles.
Here is the booklet and the brochure (marketing):
And here is an article I wrote with fabien that presents GNUstep and that has a 
bit of history in it:

Just a quick starter, I don't have much time, so...

10 the magic number
Today the OpenStep API celebrates it's 10th anniversary. What started out as a joint adventure of NeXT and SUN to define an application development standard that would run on all machines, making a write once compile everywhere paradigma a reality, is still a vivid and active community of GNUstep, old NeXT and Apple lovers.

The magic 10 appears in Apple's OS X and in GNUsteps current 1.10.x release numbers. Currently people are able to develop their programs on Mac OS, Linux, the BSDs, Solaris, and with a couple of hurdles even on Windows. Slowly but steadily a solid and well defined standard is reaching out to the world of software development.

Program your applications in a couple of hours instead of days, weeks or never. Use the advanced API of a development framework that didn't need any modification for 10 years, because it rocks, is stable and just works.
