Karongasaurus gittelmani - First "real" on-line dinosaur named

The new issue of Palaeontologia Electronica is out (volume 8, no. 1). . .it's a big one, in honor of the late William Downs III.

Dino-relevant highlights include:

Turtle Tracks in the Judith River Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of
South-Central Montana 8.1.9A
Anthony R. Fiorillo

Anaglyph Stereo Imaging of Dinosaur Track Morphology and
Microtopography 8.1.10A
Stephen M. Gatesy, Neil H. Shubin, and Farish A. Jenkins, Jr.

A Morphological Model and CT Assessment of the Skull of Pachyrachis
problematicus (Squamata, Serpentes), A 98 Million Year-Old Snake
with Legs from the Middle East 8.1.26A
M.J. Polcyn, Louis L. Jacobs, and Annat Haber

Sauropod Dinosaurs from the Early Cretaceous of Malawi, Africa
Elizabeth M. Gomani

The Gomani paper names Karongasaurus gittelmani, a new sauropod. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this the first "real" [excluding vanity publications, etc.] dinosaur to be named in an exclusively digital format?
