It seems that many Planet “subscribers” (people who'’ve asked to get reminder letters with links to interesting updates) are confused by our abandonment of the Friday deadline schedule. Thanks, everyone, for letting us know. Some have made suggestions for changes, but unfortunately these seem to involve more work, not less. It’'s a good guess that readers who haven'’t joined the mailing list are also confused. 

Nonetheless, your best strategy for a while will be just to type into your browser from time to time and see what comes up. We'’ve been posting new items fairly often on no particular schedule, usually identified for a few days with the green “New” label in the headline.
