UPDATE (July 12): Read Prof. Jarret Brachman's brief analysis and break-down of the magazine at HIS BLOG.
Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP) media outlet, the Al-Malahim (Malahem; Epics) Media Foundation, has seemingly released its first English-language jihadi-takfiri Internet magazine, Inspire. There is some debate among analysts and scholars who specialize in AQAP and transnational jihadi-takfiri movements as to whether Inspire is an "official" AQAP production, though it appears to be. It was distributed by the Al-Fajr (Dawn) Media Center, a shadowy transnational jihadi-takfiri distribution network and media center that distributes all media material from AQAP, Al-Qa'ida Central (AQC), and Al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).
An earlier file of the magazine was reportedly infected with a virus and only few pages were readable; the rest contained character errors. For the best analysis of the media frenzy of a highly uninformed nature that greeted this initial "release" of the magazine, see Dr. Thomas Hegghammer's post at Jihadica. He is an expert in AQAP and the varieties of Islamist activism in Saudi Arabia, whose book Jihad in Saudi Arabia:Violence and Pan-Islamism Since 1979 is highly recommended.
Inspire, upon first glance, is remarkably similar to an earlier jihadi-takfiri Internet magazine, 2009's Jihad Recollections, which seems to have since stopped production after several issues. It was allegedly masterminded by an American, Samir Khan, and included contributions by members of the very small but disproportionately-covered Revolution Muslim outfit. Inspire includes an article by the radical American-Muslim jihadi-takfiri preacher Anwar al-'Awlaqi (Awlaki, Aulaqi) and an interview with AQAP's amir (top leader), Abu Basir Nasir al-Wuhayshi (al-Wahayshi).
AQAP has produced an Arabic-language Internet magazine, Sada al-Malahim (Echo of Epics/Epic Battles), for some time.
UPDATE #2: A copy of Inspire was embedded via my former Scribd account, which has been closed due to a "copyright claim" on, amusingly, the AQAP magazine. PDF files of the magazine have been uploaded by jihadi-takfiris to:
