The Connecticut Mirror is launching the first phase of a redesign that will make our site easier to read and navigate and provide more news, features and links to content elsewhere on the Web.

You’ll see a new home page designed to display more stories, along with links to our blogs, other state websites, the best reader comments and more. Additional features will be added in the weeks ahead.

We’re also making the process of registering, commenting and signing up to get our stories emailed to you easier.

The redesign process will continue through the coming months, and we invite your comments and suggestions. We look forward to hearing from you.
