### FSF job opportunity: Program manager

*From October 10*

The FSF seeks a motivated and talented Boston-based individual to be
our full-time program manager. Reporting to the executive director,
the program manager co-leads our campaigns team. This position
develops and promotes longer-term resources and advocacy programs
related to increasing the use of free software and expanding and
advancing the free software movement. The program manager plays a key
role in external communications, fundraising, member engagement, and
special events.

Ideal candidates have at least three to five years of work experience
with project management, fundraising, events management, and nonprofit
program management. Proficiency, experience, and comfort with
professional writing and media relationships preferred. Because the
FSF works globally and seeks to have our materials distributed in as
many languages as possible, multilingual candidates will have an
advantage. For more information on how to apply, see the link below.

### Announcing keynote speakers for LibrePlanet -- and don't miss your chance to give a talk

*From October 18*

We're proud to announce the 2019 LibrePlanet keynote speakers: Debian
Project contributor Bdale Garbee, free software activist Micky Metts,
physician Tarek Loubani, and FSF founder and president Richard
Stallman, all of whom are trailblazers of free software in their own
right.

*
*

### FSF statement on Microsoft joining the Open Invention Network

*From October 10*

Microsoft's announcements on October 4th and 10th, that it has joined
both LOT and the Open Invention Network (OIN), are significant steps
in the right direction, potentially providing respite from Microsoft's
well-known extortion of billions of dollars from free software
redistributors.

These steps, though, do not by themselves fully address the problem of
computational idea patents, or even Microsoft's specific infringement
claims. With these limitations in mind, FSF welcomes the
announcements, and calls on Microsoft to take three additional steps
to continue the momentum toward a complete resolution.

*

### Introducing our new associate member forum!

*From October 15*

We hope that you find this forum to be a great place to share your
experiences and perspectives surrounding free software and to forge
new bonds with the free software community. If you're a member of the
FSF, head on over to to get
started. You'll be able to log in using the Central Authentication
Service (CAS) account that you used to create your membership.

Participation in this forum is just one of many
[benefits](https://www.fsf.org/associate/benefits) of being an FSF
member -- if you're not a member yet, we encourage you to [join
today](https://my.fsf.org/join), for as little as $10 per month, or $5
per month for students.

### DMCA exemptions granted but overall process still broken

*From October 26 by Kit Walsh and Mitch Stolz*

The US Library of Congress, through its subsidiary, the Copyright
Office, granted several new exemptions to Section 1201 of the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Section 1201 makes it illegal to
circumvent the computer code that prevents copying or modifying in
most software-controlled products -- which nowadays includes everything
from refrigerators and baby monitors to tractors and smart
speakers. EFF and the FSF have fought a years-long battle against
anti-consumer DMCA abuse, since the statute on its face gives
manufacturers, tech companies, and Hollywood studios outsized control
over the products we own.

### Apple's new proprietary software locks will kill independent repair on new MacBook Pros

*From October 4 by Jason Koebler*

iFixit has found that Apple has a “kill switch” in the new MacBook
Pros. While these switches are not yet operational, when they work,
they will effectively prevent independent and third-party repair on
2018 MacBook Pro computers, according to internal Apple documents
obtained by *Motherboard*. This is only one of many egregious [attacks
on user
freedom](https://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/apple-app-store-anniversary-marks-ten-years-of-proprietary-appsploitation)
committed by Apple.

*

### Every minute for three months, GM secretly gathered data on 90,000 drivers' radio-listening habits and locations

*From October 23 by Cory Doctorow*

GM tracked the choices of radio programs in its "connected" cars,
minute by minute. GM did not get users' consent, but it could have got
that easily by sneaking it into the contract that users sign for some
digital service or other. A requirement for consent is effectively no
protection.

The cars can also collect lots of other data: listening to you,
watching you, following your movements, tracking passengers' cell
phones. *All* such data collection should be forbidden.
But if you really want to be safe, we must make sure the car's
hardware cannot collect any of that data.

*

### Thank you for participating in International Day Against DRM 2018!

*From October 4*

Hundreds of you around the world took action on the International Day
Against DRM (IDAD): going out into your campuses, communities, and
around the Web, and sharing your opposition to how Digital
Restrictions Management (DRM) restricts your freedom as a user of
software and media. The 17 participating organizations took their own
actions, creating videos, releasing reports, and writing
articles. Here in Boston, we visited the Apple Store and talked with
shoppers about their digital rights and how Apple devices abuse those
rights using DRM.

*

### Innovative biography of RMS returns to GNU Press Shop

*From October 31*

After a period of unavailability, the GNU Press Shop is proud to once
again offer *Free As In Freedom (2.0)*, the innovative biography of
Free Software Foundation founder and president Richard
M. Stallman. The original biography was written by Sam Williams in
2002, but this version is revised by Stallman himself -- while
preserving Williams's viewpoint, it includes factual corrections and
extensive new commentary by Stallman, as well as new prefaces by both
authors written for the occasion.

*

### Single-board computer guide updated: Free software is winning on ARM!

*From October 18 by Alyssa Rosenzweig*

The Free Software Foundation maintains [a list of system-on-chip
families](https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers),
sorted by their freedom status. Free software is constantly improving,
and today, more and more boards are usable with free software. The
revised list includes much more detail than its predecessors, groups
boards by system-on-chip rather than brand name for concision,
documents previously-unidentified freedom flaws, and of course
describes progress liberating the remaining elements.

*
*

### The completion of Sonali's Outreachy internship work on the Free Software Directory

*From October 12 by Sonali Singhal*

After much work, I finally completed the upgrade of the [Free Software
Directory](https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page) from the previous
long term support version of MediaWiki, 1.27, to the current one,
1.31, which was released shortly after my internship started. I also
made some general improvements, including downloading the Semantic
MediaWiki extensions using composer; removing deprecated code in
`LocalSettings.php`; and more.

*

### GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.5 released

*From October 26 by the GCC Team*

The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
release of GCC 6.5. This release is a bug-fix release, containing
fixes for regressions in GCC 6.4 relative to previous releases of GCC.

*

### Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.

To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!

The next meeting is Friday, November 2, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: Community Toolkit

Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.

For this month, we are highlighting the Community Toolkit, which
provides information about software that can be used by nonprofits,
community groups, and individuals to advance the cause of free
software. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important
resource.

*

Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
know at .

FSF job opportunity: Program manager



From October 10



The FSF seeks a motivated and talented Boston-based individual to be
our full-time program manager. Reporting to the executive director,
the program manager co-leads our campaigns team. This position
develops and promotes longer-term resources and advocacy programs
related to increasing the use of free software and expanding and
advancing the free software movement. The program manager plays a key
role in external communications, fundraising, member engagement, and
special events.



Ideal candidates have at least three to five years of work experience
with project management, fundraising, events management, and nonprofit
program management. Proficiency, experience, and comfort with
professional writing and media relationships preferred. Because the
FSF works globally and seeks to have our materials distributed in as
many languages as possible, multilingual candidates will have an
advantage. For more information on how to apply, see the link below.






Announcing keynote speakers for LibrePlanet -- and don't miss your chance to give a talk



From October 18



We're proud to announce the 2019 LibrePlanet keynote speakers: Debian
Project contributor Bdale Garbee, free software activist Micky Metts,
physician Tarek Loubani, and FSF founder and president Richard
Stallman, all of whom are trailblazers of free software in their own
right.






FSF statement on Microsoft joining the Open Invention Network



From October 10



Microsoft's announcements on October 4th and 10th, that it has joined
both LOT and the Open Invention Network (OIN), are significant steps
in the right direction, potentially providing respite from Microsoft's
well-known extortion of billions of dollars from free software
redistributors.



These steps, though, do not by themselves fully address the problem of
computational idea patents, or even Microsoft's specific infringement
claims. With these limitations in mind, FSF welcomes the
announcements, and calls on Microsoft to take three additional steps
to continue the momentum toward a complete resolution.






Introducing our new associate member forum!



From October 15



We hope that you find this forum to be a great place to share your
experiences and perspectives surrounding free software and to forge
new bonds with the free software community. If you're a member of the
FSF, head on over to https://forum.members.fsf.org to get
started. You'll be able to log in using the Central Authentication
Service (CAS) account that you used to create your membership.



Participation in this forum is just one of many
benefits of being an FSF
member -- if you're not a member yet, we encourage you to join
today
, for as little as $10 per month, or $5
per month for students.






DMCA exemptions granted but overall process still broken



From October 26 by Kit Walsh and Mitch Stolz



The US Library of Congress, through its subsidiary, the Copyright
Office, granted several new exemptions to Section 1201 of the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Section 1201 makes it illegal to
circumvent the computer code that prevents copying or modifying in
most software-controlled products -- which nowadays includes everything
from refrigerators and baby monitors to tractors and smart
speakers. EFF and the FSF have fought a years-long battle against
anti-consumer DMCA abuse, since the statute on its face gives
manufacturers, tech companies, and Hollywood studios outsized control
over the products we own.






Apple's new proprietary software locks will kill independent repair on new MacBook Pros



From October 4 by Jason Koebler



iFixit has found that Apple has a “kill switch” in the new MacBook
Pros. While these switches are not yet operational, when they work,
they will effectively prevent independent and third-party repair on
2018 MacBook Pro computers, according to internal Apple documents
obtained by Motherboard. This is only one of many egregious attacks
on user
freedom

committed by Apple.






Every minute for three months, GM secretly gathered data on 90,000 drivers' radio-listening habits and locations



From October 23 by Cory Doctorow



GM tracked the choices of radio programs in its "connected" cars,
minute by minute. GM did not get users' consent, but it could have got
that easily by sneaking it into the contract that users sign for some
digital service or other. A requirement for consent is effectively no
protection.



The cars can also collect lots of other data: listening to you,
watching you, following your movements, tracking passengers' cell
phones. All such data collection should be forbidden.
But if you really want to be safe, we must make sure the car's
hardware cannot collect any of that data.






Thank you for participating in International Day Against DRM 2018!



From October 4



Hundreds of you around the world took action on the International Day
Against DRM (IDAD): going out into your campuses, communities, and
around the Web, and sharing your opposition to how Digital
Restrictions Management (DRM) restricts your freedom as a user of
software and media. The 17 participating organizations took their own
actions, creating videos, releasing reports, and writing
articles. Here in Boston, we visited the Apple Store and talked with
shoppers about their digital rights and how Apple devices abuse those
rights using DRM.






Innovative biography of RMS returns to GNU Press Shop



From October 31



After a period of unavailability, the GNU Press Shop is proud to once
again offer Free As In Freedom (2.0), the innovative biography of
Free Software Foundation founder and president Richard
M. Stallman. The original biography was written by Sam Williams in
2002, but this version is revised by Stallman himself -- while
preserving Williams's viewpoint, it includes factual corrections and
extensive new commentary by Stallman, as well as new prefaces by both
authors written for the occasion.






Single-board computer guide updated: Free software is winning on ARM!



From October 18 by Alyssa Rosenzweig



The Free Software Foundation maintains a list of system-on-chip
families
,
sorted by their freedom status. Free software is constantly improving,
and today, more and more boards are usable with free software. The
revised list includes much more detail than its predecessors, groups
boards by system-on-chip rather than brand name for concision,
documents previously-unidentified freedom flaws, and of course
describes progress liberating the remaining elements.






The completion of Sonali's Outreachy internship work on the Free Software Directory



From October 12 by Sonali Singhal



After much work, I finally completed the upgrade of the Free Software
Directory
from the previous
long term support version of MediaWiki, 1.27, to the current one,
1.31, which was released shortly after my internship started. I also
made some general improvements, including downloading the Semantic
MediaWiki extensions using composer; removing deprecated code in
LocalSettings.php; and more.






GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.5 released



From October 26 by the GCC Team



The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
release of GCC 6.5. This release is a bug-fix release, containing
fixes for regressions in GCC 6.4 relative to previous releases of GCC.






Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory



Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.



To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!



The next meeting is Friday, November 2, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:






LibrePlanet featured resource: Community Toolkit



Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.



For this month, we are highlighting the Community Toolkit, which
provides information about software that can be used by nonprofits,
community groups, and individuals to advance the cause of free
software. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important
resource.






Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
know at campaigns@fsf.org.

### Innovative biography of RMS returns to GNU Press Shop

*From October 31*

After a period of unavailability, the GNU Press Shop is proud to once
again offer *Free As In Freedom (2.0)*, the innovative biography of
Free Software Foundation founder and president Richard
M. Stallman. The original biography was written by Sam Williams in
2002, but this version is revised by Stallman himself -- while
preserving Williams's viewpoint, it includes factual corrections and
extensive new commentary by Stallman, as well as new prefaces by both
authors written for the occasion.

### Single-board computer guide updated: Free software is winning on ARM!

*From October 18 by Alyssa Rosenzweig*

The Free Software Foundation maintains [a list of system-on-chip
families](https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers),
sorted by their freedom status. Free software is constantly improving,
and today, more and more boards are usable with free software. The
revised list includes much more detail than its predecessors, groups
boards by system-on-chip rather than brand name for concision,
documents previously-unidentified freedom flaws, and of course
describes progress liberating the remaining elements.

### The completion of Sonali's Outreachy internship work on the Free Software Directory

*From October 12 by Sonali Singhal*

After much work, I finally completed the upgrade of the [Free Software
Directory](https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page) from the previous
long term support version of MediaWiki, 1.27, to the current one,
1.31, which was released shortly after my internship started. I also
made some general improvements, including downloading the Semantic
MediaWiki extensions using composer; removing deprecated code in
`LocalSettings.php`; and more.

*

### GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.5 released

*From October 26 by the GCC Team*

The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
release of GCC 6.5. This release is a bug-fix release, containing
fixes for regressions in GCC 6.4 relative to previous releases of GCC.

### Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.

To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!

The next meeting is Friday, November 2, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: Community Toolkit

Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.

For this month, we are highlighting the Community Toolkit, which
provides information about software that can be used by nonprofits,
community groups, and individuals to advance the cause of free
software. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important
resource.

FSF job opportunity: Program manager



From October 10



The FSF seeks a motivated and talented Boston-based individual to be
our full-time program manager. Reporting to the executive director,
the program manager co-leads our campaigns team. This position
develops and promotes longer-term resources and advocacy programs
related to increasing the use of free software and expanding and
advancing the free software movement. The program manager plays a key
role in external communications, fundraising, member engagement, and
special events.



Ideal candidates have at least three to five years of work experience
with project management, fundraising, events management, and nonprofit
program management. Proficiency, experience, and comfort with
professional writing and media relationships preferred. Because the
FSF works globally and seeks to have our materials distributed in as
many languages as possible, multilingual candidates will have an
advantage. For more information on how to apply, see the link below.






Announcing keynote speakers for LibrePlanet -- and don't miss your chance to give a talk



From October 18



We're proud to announce the 2019 LibrePlanet keynote speakers: Debian
Project contributor Bdale Garbee, free software activist Micky Metts,
physician Tarek Loubani, and FSF founder and president Richard
Stallman, all of whom are trailblazers of free software in their own
right.






FSF statement on Microsoft joining the Open Invention Network



From October 10



Microsoft's announcements on October 4th and 10th, that it has joined
both LOT and the Open Invention Network (OIN), are significant steps
in the right direction, potentially providing respite from Microsoft's
well-known extortion of billions of dollars from free software
redistributors.



These steps, though, do not by themselves fully address the problem of
computational idea patents, or even Microsoft's specific infringement
claims. With these limitations in mind, FSF welcomes the
announcements, and calls on Microsoft to take three additional steps
to continue the momentum toward a complete resolution.






Introducing our new associate member forum!



From October 15



We hope that you find this forum to be a great place to share your
experiences and perspectives surrounding free software and to forge
new bonds with the free software community. If you're a member of the
FSF, head on over to https://forum.members.fsf.org to get
started. You'll be able to log in using the Central Authentication
Service (CAS) account that you used to create your membership.



Participation in this forum is just one of many
benefits of being an FSF
member -- if you're not a member yet, we encourage you to join
today
, for as little as $10 per month, or $5
per month for students.






DMCA exemptions granted but overall process still broken



From October 26 by Kit Walsh and Mitch Stolz



The US Library of Congress, through its subsidiary, the Copyright
Office, granted several new exemptions to Section 1201 of the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Section 1201 makes it illegal to
circumvent the computer code that prevents copying or modifying in
most software-controlled products -- which nowadays includes everything
from refrigerators and baby monitors to tractors and smart
speakers. EFF and the FSF have fought a years-long battle against
anti-consumer DMCA abuse, since the statute on its face gives
manufacturers, tech companies, and Hollywood studios outsized control
over the products we own.






Apple's new proprietary software locks will kill independent repair on new MacBook Pros



From October 4 by Jason Koebler



iFixit has found that Apple has a “kill switch” in the new MacBook
Pros. While these switches are not yet operational, when they work,
they will effectively prevent independent and third-party repair on
2018 MacBook Pro computers, according to internal Apple documents
obtained by Motherboard. This is only one of many egregious attacks
on user
freedom

committed by Apple.






Every minute for three months, GM secretly gathered data on 90,000 drivers' radio-listening habits and locations



From October 23 by Cory Doctorow



GM tracked the choices of radio programs in its "connected" cars,
minute by minute. GM did not get users' consent, but it could have got
that easily by sneaking it into the contract that users sign for some
digital service or other. A requirement for consent is effectively no
protection.



The cars can also collect lots of other data: listening to you,
watching you, following your movements, tracking passengers' cell
phones. All such data collection should be forbidden.
But if you really want to be safe, we must make sure the car's
hardware cannot collect any of that data.






Thank you for participating in International Day Against DRM 2018!



From October 4



Hundreds of you around the world took action on the International Day
Against DRM (IDAD): going out into your campuses, communities, and
around the Web, and sharing your opposition to how Digital
Restrictions Management (DRM) restricts your freedom as a user of
software and media. The 17 participating organizations took their own
actions, creating videos, releasing reports, and writing
articles. Here in Boston, we visited the Apple Store and talked with
shoppers about their digital rights and how Apple devices abuse those
rights using DRM.






Innovative biography of RMS returns to GNU Press Shop



From October 31



After a period of unavailability, the GNU Press Shop is proud to once
again offer Free As In Freedom (2.0), the innovative biography of
Free Software Foundation founder and president Richard
M. Stallman. The original biography was written by Sam Williams in
2002, but this version is revised by Stallman himself -- while
preserving Williams's viewpoint, it includes factual corrections and
extensive new commentary by Stallman, as well as new prefaces by both
authors written for the occasion.






Single-board computer guide updated: Free software is winning on ARM!



From October 18 by Alyssa Rosenzweig



The Free Software Foundation maintains a list of system-on-chip
families
,
sorted by their freedom status. Free software is constantly improving,
and today, more and more boards are usable with free software. The
revised list includes much more detail than its predecessors, groups
boards by system-on-chip rather than brand name for concision,
documents previously-unidentified freedom flaws, and of course
describes progress liberating the remaining elements.






The completion of Sonali's Outreachy internship work on the Free Software Directory



From October 12 by Sonali Singhal



After much work, I finally completed the upgrade of the Free Software
Directory
from the previous
long term support version of MediaWiki, 1.27, to the current one,
1.31, which was released shortly after my internship started. I also
made some general improvements, including downloading the Semantic
MediaWiki extensions using composer; removing deprecated code in
LocalSettings.php; and more.






GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.5 released



From October 26 by the GCC Team



The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
release of GCC 6.5. This release is a bug-fix release, containing
fixes for regressions in GCC 6.4 relative to previous releases of GCC.






Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory



Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.



To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!



The next meeting is Friday, November 2, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:






LibrePlanet featured resource: Community Toolkit



Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.



For this month, we are highlighting the Community Toolkit, which
provides information about software that can be used by nonprofits,
community groups, and individuals to advance the cause of free
software. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important
resource.






Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
