This page lists, non-exhaustively, major changes to SLAC's production Web. For a more comprehensive list of recent changes, see Pages Changed Yesterday; for old changes, What's New for 1993/4. For some general information on what's new at SLAC, see Hot Topics.

Some Highlights January-May, 1996*

In addition to the non-exhaustive list of major changes to the production system summarized below, we are experimenting with a new page to help cross-Lab communication. This page lists Web projects people are starting to develop. See:

SLAC Web in Development

The 1993/4 material that used to be at the bottom of this page has been split off into its own page.
