It is new. We get the request for a newsletter a few times a week. I had no idea what to put in it. A few weeks ago at GTC someone that runs a HPC focused website said that theirs is popular and they just take the top viewed content each week and send it via e-mail. Many people like that delivery method better. That also makes it significantly easier to produce. So, Mailchimp activated and we shall see if we get any subscribers.
Just being clear - this is not related to the forums so you need to sign up on the main site page.
