-> VBPZ RETURNS

   On 18th May, due to a server problem, VBPZ went
   TOTALLY offline. Instead of re-uploading the site
   immediatly, I decided to remake the entire site.
   I started studying a new layout, and this took me
   a long time. After that, I had to convert all the
   files to the new layout and to create the site
   itself.
   Today, 31st July, after more than two months, the
   new VBPZ is available at the usual URL, that
   remains http://vbpz.tsx.org, with no WWW.
   A note about resolution: the new layout is best
   viewed at 800x600 or better. Also a 16-bit or
   better color depth is required.

------------------------------------------------------
-> ACTUAL IMPROVEMENTS

   Some improvements are done already:

    - an entire section of the site is now dedicated
      to VBPZ Gazette: automatic immediate
      (un)subscription, mailings archive and other
      features to come are accessible from there

    - files are now divided into categories

    - on the Home Page, left side, a summary of the
      latest news and updates is always visible

    - on the Home Page, right site, some of the
      coolest downloads are listed.

    - sections of the site are accessible through a
      horizzontal navigation bar on the top, while
      downloads categories are listed on a left menu

    - date of latest update is always visible on the
      top-right corner of the scrren
  
------------------------------------------------------
-> THE PLANS

   The actually available site has substantially no
   additional features than the old one.
   Beside new files, I plan to offer tutorials, an
   API guide, VB resources (links, newsgroups), a
   forum and an internal search engine.
   So, many improvements will follow, but only in
   mid-September or later (I'm on vacation now, and
   can't take care of the site).

------------------------------------------------------
-> ONLY FREEWARE!

   This note concearns the contents of my site.
   From now on, all the articles, code, activex,
   utils, will be freeware. There won't be shareware
   or demo files, and non-free material will no longer
   be accepted if sent.

------------------------------------------------------
-> TWO FILES MISSING

   There is currently a little trouble, two of the
   files in the Tools section aren't online.
   I apologize about that. I'll fix this problem as
   soon as possible.
