A number of recent news stories and blog items:

Theropod, sauropod, and pterosaur tracks found in Katsuyama,
Kitadanichosugiyama, Fukui Prefecture, in Japan. The theropod tracks
are in a consecutive series, indicating walking speed. The age is
Cretaceous (120 million years ago).  (in Japanese with photos)

More Dreadnoughtus stuff




OK--I can't vouch for what this really is, but it sort of looks like
something with a set of jaws like a theropod or maybe a mosasaur....

One issue I have not really dealt with in posting articles is the
first publication of an article online, sometimes in manuscript form,
and the official publication with page numbers and valid taxa. I
usually post the original "advance" publication of an article but not
the final official publication. When articles are in open access,
though, it may be worth noting the final form.
For example, this article on vegetation across the K-Pg boundary is
now out in final form and easier to read than the manuscript form
first posted in the DML:

The new issue of open access Acta Palaeontologica Polonica is out with
papers that were posted in 2012.
