Our monthly magazine was long overdue for a redesign, but this task is easier said (debated, researched, etc.) than done. If you're familiar with print publishing, you know that we have a frantic schedule that never slows down. In our case, the pace has only picked up as we continue to launch new magazines. Yet somehow our amazing editors and production team squeezed a Linux Pro Magazine (a.k.a. Linux Magazine outside North America) redesign into the mix. I tried to stay out of their way and anxiously awaited the results.

The new design rolled out with our July issue (#116), which is on newsstands now. In addition to tweaking the look of the magazine, the editors reorganized the departments a bit.

The July issue also introduces our new news editor, Trevan McGee. He'll be with us at the upcoming Community Leadership Summit, OSCON, and LinuxCon events, but you can also reach him by email if you have news story ideas or press releases to share.

The editors even threw me a one-page column each month. If you have ideas for topics I should cover, please let me know.

We've already heard some great feedback about the new design and would love to hear what you think. You can leave a comment for the editors here or email them at Happy reading!
