The What's New Archive
23:24 - Commander Crews opened from Conning Tower
Just finished coding the new Kriegsmarine Crews pages. These give you a complete listing of all U-boat Commanders from each crew (like the famous Olympia Crew of 1936). I also, of course, linked these crews to every Commander page as well, see Wilhelm Franken of Crew 35 for example.
23:18 - New sections opened from the Conning Tower
Been busy and fully ported the large Convoy battles sections that includes all convoys attacked (over 650) plus all convoy routes. This was then linked to the new U-boat commander pages.
Although the Conning Tower migration is not complete by far already thousands of new pages have been opened.
00:13 - Updated the page on Oblt. Günter Behnisch
Added biographical information to the page on Oblt. Günter Behnisch. He became a very famous and successful architect after the war.
18:53 - Conning Tower update
I've opened 6 Galleries and 9 Articles previously only available in the Conning Tower area.
I also created a simple image to show the status of the project - what's done and what's not.
22:45 - Ships attacked and types updates
Been working on the Ships hit by U-boats sections, especially the Allied Ships not hit by U-boats part of it (removed bugs and improved layout). Worked also on the U-boat types pages where I generally made them look better and fixed smaller problems.
21:54 - U-boat Commander pages first to open
I am working on launching all 1412 U-boat Commander pages from our Conning Tower files. This will be the first major section to be ported to the main part of the site. I have to take special care not to screw up the 150 existing commander pages that have been for 10 years in the open part of the site.
