Happy December Solstice!

Posted December 21, 2011 by User 1

Today is the day of the December solstice, marking the beginning of winter for the northern hemisphere and summer for the southern hemisphere. The actual moment of solstice occurs at 05:30 on December 22 UT (21:30, December 21 PST). At that moment, the Earth is at the point in its orbit where the South Pole is pointed most directly at the sun as it will reach this year. This means that there will be more daylight today than any other day of the year south of the Equator and less daylight than any other day north of the Equator.

To celebrate this event, the Caglow project will be releasing Aciqra 2.1.0 on the minute of the solstice. This will also be Aciqra's third birthday with it having been created on December 21, 2008 (PST). This will also mark the last of the three major project releases planned for this month with Aloac and I (both at 2.1) having been released yesterday and earlier today respectively.
