Thank you @CR3W. The complete list of changes can be found below. Most of the changes outlined are admin features with the exceptions of icons and new layouts.
Outside of the UI, one change you may notice is:
Limit consecutive replies
Do your users like to reply to themselves in a topic over and over again? Or reply to different users each as a new reply instead of quoting? Discourse now limits users to no more than 3 consecutive replies. If the user attempts to post more the reply will not be posted, and they’ll be instructed to edit their last post instead. The maximum number of consecutive replies can be modified via the max consecutive replies site setting.
The moderation team has been emphasizing the use of the edit button instead of constant replies in an effort to help keep the forum free from clutter. If you receive this warning, please edit your post instead of posting a new reply.
This update bothers me. I dislike how the profile button and topic selection times out, the fade animations seem a bit weird, and I don’t personally like how the topics come from the left… This update seems a bit clunky to me, honestly.
I’m sure we’ll all get used to it though! :)
This is rather BS… When you swipe from the left to bring up the Notifications Menu thing, it won’t work when in a PM, and you try to slide it. The Notification Bar appears for a split second then disappears… sooo yeah… a little buggy maybe… don’t if it’s only like that for me?
