Diary of Changes to SkyDancer 

When I make changes to SkyDancer that I think might interest you, I'll record them here. That way you can immediately find what's new, without hunting.

(There used to be a service you could subscribe to, which would notify you when this changed; it's no longer available, so come look for yourself now and then.)
