The Rutgers Optimality Archive (ROA)—a major distribution point for research in Optimality Theory and its conceptual affiliates—has re-opened as a full-service site at roa.rutgers.edu. All former links to files will continue to work. Last year ROA was struck by a mild hacking attack, which forced it offline. It was temporarily replaced by an all-html site constructed by Alan Prince, but has now been entirely re-written by the professionals at MSSG (Rutgers) to provide up-to-date security as well as the familiar search and upload facilities. ROA is hosted by the School of Arts Sciences. Alan would like to thank Naz Merchant (Rutgers 2008, currently Mathematics, Eckerd College) for design suggestions and Jane Grimshaw, Eric Baković (Rutgers 2000, currently Linguistics, UCSD), and Dave Motovidlak (SAS) for their work on the site during the period of transition.
