Update went ok although with a few hiccups. Eating my own dogfood found a fairly serious bug in upgrading which should be fixed shortly. All the REST and action resolver stuff I talked about recently is now in action and you can now use preformatted text in comments with use.perl-inspired ecode tags -- thanks to Aristotle for the suggestion.

I also added a new feature found in the updated 'news' package -- the front page and main news page now have an 'Archive' box listing all my news posts by month. Caching makes doing this dynamically a piece of cake -- it only gets generated once an hour, which makes my soon-to-get-more-memory server a happy camper.

So once I'm certain the aforementioned bug is fixed I'll get this version out on CPAN -- lots of changes, and for once it's on schedule. (Sure, it's a schedule I announced only a few weeks ago, but you gotta have some victories...)

Next: OpenInteract 1.99_06 released
