Hi folks!

It's been a busy start to the PP year, and we've got a couple of releases coming to you in close succession over the coming weeks.

The first is a small release (around 2000 pages) of a pair of 1970's-1980's magazine titles:

Te Kaea (1979-81)
Tu Tangata (1981-1987)

Those of you with Maori heritage might find this interesting - the relatively recent date of the publications is a bit of a change from the usual PP scenario too. All going well, it should be up next week sometime.

In the weeks following that, we'll be putting out a newspapers release, containing:

Lyttelton Times (1915-1920)
Manawatu Standard (1924-1945)
Nelson Evening Mail (1923-1930)
Press (Jan-Jun 1887, Sep-Nov 1903)
Waikato Times (1922-1928)

Hi folks - the newspaper release above has just gone live. Also, we're now over 6M pages, and creeping up to 70M articles - a little stats trivia for you there.
