The What's New Archive
13:09 - Attacks on U-boats added
I've added "Attacks on this boat" section to our U-boat pages, see U-338 for example. At the same time I've removed "Successes against aircraft" from the same pages ("Attacks" includes all aircraft hits). I also improved several layout issues on the boat pages.
13:26 - Events on this day improved
I've done 2 changes to the Events on this day section. First, I've removed the "Successes against aircraft" block since it's now duplicated with better data in the newer "Attacks on U-boats". Secondly, I've fixed a bug in the "Shipyard report" block where part of the table would sometimes not print out (if only laid down boats on this data were found, for example).
18:52 - Conning Tower update
I've added 3 new functions to the U-boat patrol pages; Events during the patrol, Attacks on the boat and finally Men Lost during the patrol. This gives a much clearer view of the patrol and events during it.
12:44 - U-boat pages improved
I've added 3 new details to the U-boat pages (see U-99 for example); ordere date, launched date and shipyard werk number.
12:30 - Fighting the U-boats updates
Spent a lot of time updating various aspects of this section. No new material, apart from our ever ongoing database work, but lot of code cleaned up and overall look and feel improved.
21:02 - Seasons greetings to you all
I wish to give greetings from us here at uboat.net. Merry Christmas and may you have a very happy new year!
21:26 - Updated "Events on this day" again
I've improved the "Shipyard report" section on the Events on this day section a lot. Now it's simpler and faster.
22:11 - Major update on Events on this day
I've spent a lot of time vastly updating one of our most popular sections - Events on this day. These changes should make it a lot more usable and friendly
- The selected date can be changed to any day of the year
- On "Allied ships hit ..." you can now click on each ship's name and see its page
Hope you like these changes.
00:13 - The layout of the site has been updated
I've just launched some changes to the layout of the site.
- The site is now wider and makes better use of larger monitors
- The top and bottom menus are in larger type making them easier to read
- The header image was updated and expanded for the wider layout
- Text should be more readable (size and line-height)
- Fixed the odd IE7 behavior where the site was stuck to the left side of the monitor
- Some smaller changes and fixes here and there
This is not fully done yet, I will update several major pages now to fit better and make further corrective changes.
12:19 - Lots of changes on the horizon
Been hugely busy for the last few weeks and had to reduce work on the site. This will be better after this week and then I'll do several major changes to the site.
In addition to the items shown here above we made some 1083 additions or changes in our databases during December 2007.
