This page details most -- but not all -- of the changes made to the help pages over the past few years. While it is not clear the this information will be useful to anyone, it is included here for completeness until someday when I do a nice "what's new" page.
New material or other significant changes of interest are marked with an asterisk (*). Trivial changes and changes relevant only to the maintenance or management of the pages are marked with a period (.).
