Blog Migration

Friday, October 17th, 2008

You may have noticed or better yet, you haven’t: we switched the WALS blog to a new software, WordPress μ. While I hope this move went without glitches, I’m almost sure it didn’t. So if you spot any problems, let us know.

Unfortunately, all feed URLs have changed. We try to redirect to the appropriate new ones, but probably you will have to update any subscriptions you may have.
