 Web Usability site

We have now released the first version of the WU website. The main new features are as follows:
- More pictures and thumbnails of them.
- First access is a nanosecond slower but caching speeds things up thereafter.
- Better adherence to the patterns themselves (we think) so better usability.
- You can now submit a new pattern of your own. (The idea here is to start to create a community of pattern writers in this area.)
- Everything is now driven from a content database.
- The whole site was generated using a modelling tool (described on the Coherence site if you're interested).

Features to be implemented in the next release(s):
- Semi-automatic generation of pattern sequences.(That should be up and running this month we hope.)
- Modify and submit an existing pattern (without having to type or paste it all in from scratch).
- The diagrams will be generated dynamically as new patterns are added.

One of the consequences of the last mentioned feature is that we now have a 'shell' into which absolutely any pattern language that conforms to the Alexandrian layout can be dropped. That means that, if you have written the text for a pattern language, you can create a website for it in a matter of hours (minutes if it's only a few patterns). It will have all the above features (and look like the WU site) automatically. We'd be really interested to know if this would be useful to you or your friends or colleagues, since we are toying with the idea of making it available commercially to companies that build internal pattern languages. We'll be at EuroPLoP in Irsee, so if you're going, talk to us there perhaps, otherwise a comment by mail would be very helpful.

You can access the site directly from here. However, if your browser is really ancient (e.g. Netscape 4) please use the old Wu Patterns site.
