BETA Micor News

From time to time we'll have some news to share with you. It might be to let you know that Micor will be unavailable for maintenance, or to let you know about an enhancement to Micor.

New News items appear at the top of the page in a bright yellow banner. 

Sometimes there will be a link to a longer story, which will be linked.

News items will stick around until you close them by selecting the close/exit icon (X). Sometimes we'll turn them off automatically, like when the maintenance period is over. You can always find the news item again by visiting the News page. There's a link to the News page in the footer of every Micor page.

While these enhancements are in BETA, we are maintaining a known issues list.

When you turn on the Show/hide changes, words that have been added will be shaded in green. Words that have been deleted will be shown as strikethrough and highlighted in red.
