The What's New Archive
22:38 - The photo database is in final testing now, should be open to you all within days. At launch it will not be with all the features I plan for it but it's gonna be enough to whet your appetite :)
- Added cover for book Submarino U 202, El
- Added cover for book Mar cruel
00:34 - I'm working on moving uboat.net to another and better server right now. It's a big job that came about suddenly and needs all my attention. Hopefully it's over tomorrow or the day after that. You'll have a better uboat.net when the transition is over (it will be very smooth).
I've improved the dataset for U-boat commands and that shows on the U-boat commanders listings.

12:19 - Fixed a strange link to U-boat flotillas in the U-boat profiles. The problem was that the Kriegsmarine had 2 flotillas named "5. Flottille", one a combat one disbanded in Jan, 1940 and the other a training flotilla formed in June 1941.
Majority of the links [from U-boats serving in those flotillas] had been going to the older, combat flotilla but should have been going to the newer training one. Thanks to Drazen Kramaric for pointing this out to me.
09:51 - Photo database
Finally! The photodatabase is close to being ready. I've already imported over 1100 photos into it and now I only have to program the interface and overall improve the system (descriptions etc.). Hope I can open it within days.
00:08 - Added a new feature to the Listing of all U-boat Commanders; this cool feature shows the patrol info (including number of days at sea) for every commander (men who did not go out on patrol are marked as such). Check it out!

22:24 - Terrorist attack on the US
