I wouldn't recommend an automatic redirect, and certainly not as quickly as
5 seconds for a page with tiny print in a light color font.

That method takes a simple typo and shoves me somewhere that may not even
closely resemble where I want to go.

A simple link to "What's new" is sufficient.  I may be looking for
something old.
