Official Release

Postby aebrown » Fri Jul 27, 2012 3:28 pm

The Newsletter application is now available on the Tools menu on LDS.org.

Now that Newsletter is no longer in beta, discussions regarding the released version should be posted in the new forum section called Newsletter.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
