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, Previous Years. For some general information on what's new at SLAC, see Announcements; for Web information people are starting to develop, SLAC Web in Development.

Some Highlights June-September, 1996

The design of the central pages documenting key aspects of SLAC's Web infrastructure (support, authoring, and other resources) has been changed and significantly expanded. There are a number of new pages, especially on policies. The new "top of the tree" is a completely redesigned SLAC WWW Support page, available from an updated bottom button bar, common in SLAC central pages.
