Welcome change in Federal Reserve Yield Curve Releases

For months I have been pointing out short-comings in Federal Agencies data dissemination practices.  Amid my criticism the Federal Reserve has recently taken a step in the right direction with respect to it's dissemination of "unofficial" yield curve data.  Links for the Tips yield curve, nominal yield curve, and three-factor term premium model have been updated religiously for 10-15 years under their respective paper locations.  These have finally been consolidated and moved to the main data page, where they can now easily be located under the "Other" heading. Kudos to the Fed for finally recognizing and acting in the interest of data users.  Moving the links to the centralized location will no doubt elevate awareness and increase their popularity.
