The Non-Code Contributor - Issue #32

The Non-Code Contributor - Issue #32
By Justin Dorfman • Issue #32 • View online
After months of working with the Zsh (Z Shell) team, the project now has a modern logo they can be proud of. It is now on Wikipedia,, and Sourceforge.
I want to dedicate this issue to Guist, one of the most talented designers and non-code contributors I have enjoyed working with. Without her, the Zsh project would still be struggling to communicate ownership, quality, and values.
“Zsh has been around [for 32 years] and is widely used — it’s great finally to have something to announce ourselves to the world visually. This way we’re more than just a word.”
— Peter Stephenson · Zsh Maintainer
