New LAMS Course page layout and features

Ernie and the tech team have done some great work on new improvements for the main LAMS course page (the main page after login for stand-alone LAMS servers) - the new approach has better layout for courses/classes and sequences, especially those with lots of sequences. It also includes a feature for simply adding a "one activity" sequence. This will be available in future releases of LAMS. For details and screenshots (and to ask questions), please see:
