You fail to mention what the heck is Visopsys. People shouldn't have to read the news behind the news to just understand what the buzz is about. And in this case even that isn't enough, because you only link to a change log.

I agree. A single sentence explaining why you should care about Visopsys would be much appreciated. Though if jpeg support is a new feature I should probably not care about that OS.

Perhaps the "image resizing" feature will tickle your interest?

It's a hobby OS. One that's been well reported on in the past (not just here, but internet wide)

So that might be why there's a lack of detail - it was assumed that people who would read this were already following this OS.
