Dear standard advocates, QA IG participants.

There has been quite a lot of activity in W3C QA software recently, so
here is a quick roundup of the news:

- The Markup Validator was upgraded at the beginning of August. Since
  that caused a bit of load on the server, a mirror has been added, and
  now validator.w3.org is served from two different servers.

- The Log Validator has been upgraded, too, and now sports a link
  checker module. For those not familiar with the Log Validator, it's a
  tool that can batch process a (large) number of documents through a
  variety of QA tools. If processing from your server's logs, it can point
  you to the most popular document which need being worked on.

- The CSS validator has been updated, thanks to some fantastic work by
  Jean-Guilhem Rouel. The SOAP interface is now stable, a CSS2.1 profile
  has been added, and 62 (!) bugs were fixed in the past couple of months.

If you are interested in following the news in QA publications or
software releases, they are all featured on the QA Home Page:

the users of feed readers.

Thanks,
