Through the medium of this post I would like to share with you all the first release version of the
websurfx project which was released on the 1st of October.
If you are new, and you don’t know what is

Which covers in depth about what the project is and why it exists.
Before I share with you the
changelog, what this release version means and a preview on what we are planning to work on for the next major release
v2.0.0. I would first like to thank all our contributors and maintainers because of whom this was all possible. Specially I would like to thank gzsombor and dr410nf1l3 who have been invaluable to the project. Also,
Websurfx would not have been possible without alamin655 and xffxff early involvement.
