September 2020’s Gwern.net newsletter is now out; previous, August 2020 (archives). This is a collation of links and summary of major changes, overlapping with my Changelog⁠; brought to you by my donors on Patreon⁠.

Writings

  • Gwern.net: dark mode image handling fixed (images are inverted based on automated heuristic + manual tagging); annotations can now be ‘definitions’ (popup annotations for non-link text); expanded tooltips as fallback for link annotations; bolded abstracts & revised list hierarchy to use bold; changed all dates to YYYY-MM-DD for consistency; added missing link icons for >7 domains, fixed spacing & overlapping, and harmonized opacity of all link icons; Pandoc now uses MathJax directly, enabling colored equations; internal links to a previous or later section now point up or down (respectively) as a navigation aid; experimental use of prefetching; custom instead of horizontal ruler; simplified mobile appearance; miscellaneous bug fixes (assisted by new test / demo page)
