Very nice of Kablenet to spread the news about the upgrade of the Government Gateway. And they note it's the "UK's most important piece of e-government technology", which is always nice to hear. The first part of the upgrade was completed this weekend. We'll do the second part on the night of the 2nd and during part of the day on the 3rd of July. Then we can start using the new features we're adding - and services will start to come online taking advantage of them in August. One strange thing in the Kable article is about the Gateway "offering direct access from the Internet". It's always been directly accessible, but I think what they mean is that we'll be able to connect Local Authorities via the Internet instead of them needing to be on the GSI.
