Anyone who follows this forum is probably curious as to what has been going on recently, and where the "new" UI is?*
Well, it is coming along, albeit rather slowly. But to at least show some progress, I'll try to get some screen grabs up at the end of next week to demonstrate some of the changes, although they will all be very provisional in nature.
*I am trying not to stray too far from the current design to help manage the change.

There will be fallout. A lot of older browsers (IE8, your time is up) will no longer be supported.

These are just screen grabs cropped out of a browser window - so no need for concern.
Originally posted by RussNot bad at all. I think it's enough like the old screens to not cause too many headaches on the switchover. Of course you'll always get the ones divegeester described, but not much room to complain on these screens, anyway. The auto-scaling and auto-arrange features will probably help with that, too.
These grabs are VERY provisional. Anything and everything could change prior to release, or even the beta. The key objective here is to complete the move to supporting all devices. The boards will scale to match your screen and the pages will arrange themselves to best suit your device.
