The announcement about MPL 1.1 has been in the IBDI pages now for some weeks.

As this site gets updated constantly, you'll need to refresh often.
Today, nearly all pages were updated.

We are working to getting the site under control of a web application to
avoid "refresh lag" to some extent, for those of you who have your browsers
set to hold your cache until the next millenium. It won't totally solve
the problem as some versions of IE5 now ignore cache instructions from the
server...but it will help. Coming soon. In the meantime, apologies for
the inconvenience of having to reload pages.

Helen and Jason.
