New on Gwulo: 2019, week 01

Submitted by David on Mon, 12/31/2018 - 16:27

I've just learned that, according to the ISO standard, the first week of the year is the week that has the year's first Thursday. So despite the title above, it's still the 31st of December, and I'm writing our last roundup of what's new for 2018. 

I hope you've enjoyed reading all the contributions to Gwulo over the last year, and wish you all the best for the new year ahead,

David
