Upgrading WordPress

Tomorrow, Tuesday September 20th, we will be upgrading the WordPress software used to manage this blog. This upgrade will not affect the appearance or layout of News & Notes, but will allow us to add new features. For example, a new subscription page will offer readers the option of receiving new posts by email.

Bookmarks to our site will be safe, as the upgrade will not affect the primary web address. However, the upgrade may affect any permanent links you have to archived posts, and will change the address of the RSS feed. If you have added News & Notes to a feed reader (like Google Reader) or subscribed to receive posts through a third party program, you will need to update the link to reflect the new format. Check back tomorrow evening for the specific URL.
