It's available now. Just go to extras.

As a side point, I'm wondering how I should let everyone know about
the new features on the site. Emailing the cafe each time would be
stupid (and spam); posting to my twitter or my blog won't hit the
whole audience. The two real options I see are:

* A Haskelers twitter account
* A news section on the site

I lean towards the second. Obviously, I'd include a news feed with it.
