By the time you read this, Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) will have beenreleased. May your upgrade go smoothly. I'm a Kubuntu guy, but sincemy current install is 7.10 with added KDE 4 goodness, I may just do afresh install. But, we'll see. This month sees the start of another new series. Due to publicdemand for GIMP articles, I've created 'Using GIMP'. It will cover thebasics (this month) through to the more important things, such aslayers, and end with the creation of a collage which will use all thetechniques learned from previous months. I hope you'll enjoy it.Since is one year old this month, I thought it would befun to trace it back to its origins, and show how it has developed overthe past year. I also included some download statistics too, whichsuggest that readership has fallen over the past year, it hasn't.Remember that issue #1 has had 12 months to acquire that manydownloads. Moreover, some people link directly to the PDF, thusbypassing our download counter. Either way, I'm just happy to havedownloads!Enjoy the issue and keep in touch!Editor, Full Circle Magazineronnie@fullcirclemagazine.org
