[mesa-users] Mesa websites

Cristina (welcome!) brings up the important issue of where to find
information about Mesa. There is another place where information is
available and that is http://mesastar.org/. There are advantages to
the new interface, including searchable forums and documentation. The
issue is that we have two places now that have information about Mesa
and that are places of gathering of the community. The mesa-users
mailing list remains the main meeting point. I am not sure that
mesastar.org is advertised prominently on the
http://mesa.sourceforge.net/ website. Do we need two websites?
Wouldn't it be better to have just one? Can we have just one? Which
one do we want to use?

While we wrestle with these questions, I will be watching this list
for release notes from Bill and placing them on mesastar.org, where
they are searchable. The direct link is

- Go to mesastar.org
- Click on FAQ and Tutorials
- Click on Release notes

There are two versions of the release notes for Mesa 4411. They are
identical, except the first one is a pdf version. Version 4411 is
where the major changes occurred and Bill explains why he made those
changes in the release notes.

While you are on mesastar.org, see how you like it and poke around for
more useful documents and tools.
