IFOSSLR becomes a "rolling release" review!

 
IFOSSLR has been serving the public with the first international, peer-reviewed, Gold Open Access legal publication in its field. It has done so using a traditional pace of publication of near simultaneous electronic and hard printed versions. Its editorial committee has discussed for a while now whether to adopt a schedule better suited to the fast-paced evolution of Free and Open Source Software legal matters.
The final decision has been taken, and IFOSSLR now becomes a rolling release review.
