Here's the Security Advisory: debian.org/security/2019/dsa-4

The updated version is just a `sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade` away!

There's a new security release out today. 11 security issues in total, plus plenty of bug fixes.

Updated packages will be available shortly for stretch, and buster. I've already updated sid/unstable and my Ubuntu PPA: launchpad.net/~legoktm/+archiv

This is the official end of upstream support for the 1.27.x LTS, but I'll be backporting patches for the entire lifetime of stretch. More details to come.

Alex Morgan is my current favorite US soccer player, and Mia Hamm was one of my idols growing up. It's just inspiring.

People need to know that we're doing great stuff, and hey, it's cheaper than USC! -- Prof. Craig

Mark Purdy is going to be teaching an investigative journalism class next semester?!

One of the things we don't do enough is getting feedback from students, like this. -- Prof Craig.

What do you want that's not being offered here?

Do you just want Richard Craig in Spanish? 😂

Cal State Northridge apparently has a Spanish journalism minor.

Thinking about bilingual journalism classes. Looking to contact Telemundo for help.

For a course to make it, we need 15 students to sign up.
