Wow, time is really flying. I remember the 100th edition of my Web Development Reading List still very well. Since then, another hundred editions have appeared, and the Evergreen List has been introduced. At least most of my readers have enjoyed what I write and the number of subscribers is still growing constantly, with over 17k subscribers to the newsletter. So now it’s time to thank you for being part of the 200th edition, for all your support, your donations, your spreading-the-word, your feedback. I’m humbled by the response and acceptance of this project and feel honored that you value it so much!

This week brings us interesting content: Big news is that Facebook has ended their weird licensing for React and is now available under full MIT license. If you’re doing user authentification with PHP, you might be interested in PHP7.2 coming later that brings Argon2 support and there have been two interesting privacy-related discoveries on Tinder.
