AvantSlash cleans up the presentation of slashdot.org so it can be comfortably read on any mobile device or tablet which has a modern Web browser. The output can be skinned depending on the reading device, you can use it to reply to comments via the regular Slashdot website, and external links to certain sites (including YouTube, Wikipedia, and xkcd) will be automatically redirected to the mobile version.

Release Notes: A small item of functionality was added to allow you to view extra thread and reply links for each comment.
Release Notes: A bug which meant that the CSS cookie didn't work properly in later versions of Perl was fixed. The icons were updated and an "Apply and return" button was added to the preferences page.
Release Notes: This release resolves a number of bugs and cleans up some of the formatting. In addition, the code was updated to support better error handling, time zone translations, and date formatting, new artwork, a better credits page, blocking of Web robots, a demo mode, a black colour scheme for reading in the dark, and better reading of truncated comments.
Release Notes: The code was updated to move many of the configuration options away from text files and onto the "Credits/Preferences" page. Additional preferences were added to control the way the pages look. A number of bugs were fixed relating to the way the comments and stories were rendered.
Release Notes: The code was completely overhauled to support the new Slashdot comment system. Stylesheets can now be applied on the fly to support different devices. Comments 1 below the threshold can be expanded with a new AJAX user interface. There is a new look and feel.
