What was once new in these pages?

This page reports on the evolution of this collection of pages during the year 1997.  This helps to keep the "What's New" page to a manageable size.  The changes are reported in reverse order, with the latest at the top.  Dates show when pages were installed on the Web server, which is not always the same as their internal dates of revision.  Revisions to the list of non-carillon things are not reported, nor are minor (cosmetic) editorial fixes.

For changes which took place subsequent to 1997, see "What's New".
