The new look introduces new "section" fronts for news, art & entertainment and bloggers, as well as improved presentation of the Town Square reader forum.
"We have sought to organize the presentation of vast amounts of content in a way that is clean and simple," Almanac publisher Tom Gibboney said.
"Like anything different, it will take time to get familiar with the new layout," Mr. Gibboney said, emphasizing that additional changes and improvements will be added in the weeks ahead.
Readers are encouraged to provide their feedback and suggestions, as well as report any bugs or problems. Comments can be emailed to editor@AlmanacNews.com.
In addition to the new design, the site will feature a number of local blogs, with more to be added in the future.
