Allo! Allo! This past month saw the Yeoman community grow to 472 generators. We’re excited to see so much passion for project scaffolding and are working on some new features to enable generators to extend and build on top of each other.
We’ll talk more about this soon, but for now here’s this month’s round-up of featured articles, generators and team blogs. We hope they’re useful!
Sindre Sorhus also created envcheck - a useful environment checker that will double-check you have everything needed to run Yeoman smoothly.

This month also saw new generators released for KrakenJS, Meteor, ChaplinJS and a number of other projects. Some of our choice picks:
If you’ve written an article, given a talk or created a generator you think would be useful to others, please feel free to share it with us on Twitter or Google+. We’re always interested in seeing how our tools are used.
Until the next time we run

Before you know it, you’re staring at your terminal far longer than you used to be, waiting for your tasks to complete. It can be frustrating during your build, but super frustrating during your watch.
Fortunately, the community has been working towards speeding up your development cycle even more.

yo 1.0.7-pre is now available for testing on npm and we look forward to talking more about our roadmap for 2014 in the coming weeks. In the mean time, there's lots of juicy new updates to both our official generators and those you've been authoring below.
That's a wrap! If there are Yeoman resources you would like to suggest for the next issue, please feel free to suggest them to @yeoman on Twitter or +Yeoman on Plus and we’ll be sure to check em’ out. Happy Holidays and have a fantastic new year!
