I'm reposting the notice here in addition to the main WeBWorK news site, because it is currently hard to read the WeBWorK news site. It can be read if you are NOT logged in or if you are logged in as a guest -- but it is unreadable if you are logged in to the site as an authenticated user.

(Once we figure out why this is so we'll fix it :-) meantime I hope to see you in San Diego. -- Mike )

The main news site is:
