This page is in a somewhat bad state! But for a good reason, it undergoes a relaunch. I know what you think: »I've heard that one before.« But why not get notified when it happens?
Glad you asked, I miss it too. That's why the first part in the relaunch is lifting the old blog posts to the new system and bringing the content back online as soon as possible.
Absolutely, although their frontends and backends will be revamped to run as two separate services.
