The purpose of the SPAG New Releases Shelf is to provide a reference source for text adventure players who seek the newest contributions to IF. The page lists all games that have been released in the past 3-6 months, at least all those that I'm aware of via announcement posts to the newsgroups.
Most all of these games can be found in the IF Archive at ftp://ftp.ifarchive.org, either in one of the games directories or the unprocessed directory. (The incoming directory at ifarchive.org is not readable, so if the new game is there, you'll have to wait until it moves to unprocessed or to its proper home.)
The SPAG New Releases Shelf will be updated irregularly, since IF games (except for competition entries) don't really emerge on any rigorous schedule -- I'll always include a "last update" date on the page, and don't panic if your newly released masterpiece doesn't appear on the page within moments of your announcement. It'll get here!
