[First paragraph] Just over a week ago, the Internet Archive upgraded their support for Memento in the Wayback Machine. The Wayback Machine has had native Memento support for about 2.5 years, but they've just recently implemented a number of changes and now the Wayback Machine and version 08 of the Memento Internet Draft are synchronized. The changes will be mostly unseen by casual users, but developers will appreciate the changes that should make things even simpler. Perhaps even more importantly, these changes have been reflected in the open source version of the Wayback Machine, so the numerous sites that are running this software (for example, see the IIPC member list) should enjoy native Memento support upon their next upgrade.
