GBPS Site Updates

This page aims to list changes made to the site, together with the dates they were made, so that you can see if anything has been added since the last time you looked. It generally does not include background coding changes, or tweaks such as the correction of minor typos or adding a new picture.

The "baseline" for the list is the end of 2017 - the page was started at the end of 2018, but an attempt has been made to reconstruct the updates for the rest of the year from file update times.
