Search results are now cached, so if a time-consuming search is
interrupted, the server will complete the search and cache the results.
Repeating the search with an identical search phrase will retrieve
the cached results without requiring a wait
Search engine no longer returns results for obsolete RFCs
Archives (tar and zip files) were previously generated by scripts
and stored on the webserver for downloading via HTTP or FTP.
Archive files are now generated on the fly by the FTP server,
and are no longer available via HTTP. This is done using
wu-ftpd, which interprets a request for Course.tar (for example),
to mean a tar archive of the directory Course, though
the file Course.tar does not actually exist on the server.
The most visible consequences of this change are that archives reflect what is currently stored on the webserver; not what appeared there when the archive file was constructed. This means that if you download CIE.zip today, then again a week from now, the two files might be different.
