Running log of changes and additions
I attempt to summarize here what work I have done on ASW starting with the online version of 6.0. This log will not include error corrections and the like and I cannot promise that there will not be errors of omission or commission inasmuch as this log is not being constructed automatically and focuses on publications rather than on particular changes and fixes.

This was a tough decision to allow paraphyly back into Pelodraydinae. Recognition of Nyctimystes clearly requires the paraphyly of Litoria but this does not seem to trouble the people working on the groups.

24 Jan 2014: citations in records to Arteaga-Navarro, Bustamante, and Guayasamin, 2013, Amph. Rept. Mindo and naming of Pristimantis mindo. This publication clearly includes many previous unpublished range extensions but because they did not include province boundaries in their maps, it was rarely clear to me what were new records.

18 Jan 2014: addition of new species (Hypsiboas almendarizae, H. maculateralis, H. alfaroi, and H. tetete, the resurrection of H. steinbachi and redelimitation of H. fasciatus and H. calcaratus required by these changes; all from Caminer and Ron, 2014, ZooKeys, 370 : 1-63.

17 Jan 2014: began making changes relevant to Barej, Rödel, Loader, Menegon, Gonwouo, Penner, Gvoždík, Günther, Bell, Nagel, and Schmitz, 2014, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 71 : 261-273, involving the resurrection of Arthroleptides, restriction of Petropedetes, and naming of Odontobatrachus n. gen., of uncertain position.
17 January 2014: Version 6.0 went live.
