Planet Additions: Class Of 1/29/2011

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

As mentioned previously, we’ve created a new Planet Mozilla Projects which will be home to all project blogs. A RSS feed can be found here.

We have yet to start removing the project blogs from Planet Mozilla to allow for a short transition phase. Soon blogs that are on Planet Mozilla Projects will no longer be syndicated on Planet Mozilla.

We’ll send a few warning shots to make sure everyone is aware and has a chance to check out the new planet if they want to follow those blogs.
