The original version of this changelog dating back to November 2006 was lost in the February 2007 crash. It resumes from March.

The changelog outlines changes to the Engine structure, API's and Modules (Indicated in purple) on HPC:Factor. It is not related to site or page content. In addition, the forums are not included in this changelog, which have their own modification and update history here.

The changelog indicates bug fixes, new modules, major and minor updates and cosmetic enhancements.

Changes for March 2007

2007-03-20
- Core: New Pegasus function; something akin to a section based banner rotator - but for internal promo. Will be released aginst the FP with the current BETA project cycle later in the year.

2007-03-28
- Directory: Category Listings section "titles"/category names now display in the browser title bar - should help search engine penetration.
