 If you have been updating from the development branch of the DART subversion
-repository you will not notice much difference between that
-and the Manhattan release.  If you are still running the Kodiak
-release there are many new models, new observation types,
-capabilities in the assimilation tools, new diagnostics, and
-new utilities.  There is a short list of non-backwards
-compatible changes
+repository you will notice that the code tree has been simplified to be more
+intuitive for users. The new top level directory structure looks like :
+  <ul><li> <em class=file>README</em>            </li>
+      <li> <em class=file>COPYRIGHT</em>         </li>

+if you do try to do an 'svn update' on an existing directory, you will
+encounter many 'tree conflicts'.
+We suggest that current users checkout a fresh version of Manhattan.
+to see which files need to be moved to the new location you can use
+'svn status'.  Anything with an M or ? in the first column needs to be moved
+to the new location in the new tree.  Please contact DART if you have any
+issues migrating your existing code to the new tree structure.
+There is a short list of non-backwards compatible changes
 (<a href="#Nonbackward">see below</a>), and then a long list
 of new options and functions.
-In the near future we will be making substantial changes to
-the internal structure of DART to accomodate both larger
-models and machines with thousands of processors.  We will
-continue to maintain the Manhattan release with bug fixes, but
