I hadn't much used BHL for a while but was very active over
the weekend (and had many pages open when the change
happened). I was pleasantly surprised by the progress
(for instance all those direct links from TROPICOS to BHL
and by the amount of hits for the names I entered). The most
notable change to me is the window that shows the consulted
original page: this is more than twice as big as it was. It took
some fiddling with screen settings but I can now have half
the screen showing the page I want to see: great progress!
