Leebre news.

Shh... — Don't tell anyone we've updated!

It seems you've happend to have visited Leebre while we're renovating. Well, it's still a secret that we've updated the website to the rewrite! We're still working behind the scenes to fix a bunch of bugs with the site, and the book editor. Once we've fixed up those bugs, we'll send out invites to all our loyal backers.

Until then... let's have this update be a little secret ;)
