Milo newsletter - August

In the August Milo newsletter, you will find out, among others: why the changes in Qt will affect the QtGui, QtQuick, and QtOpenGL modules, the system that Elon Musk uses in managing its companies, and we will also show you some astrophotos that will take your breath away. We're inviting you to #MiloNewsletter.
