I have noticed the following changes in the latest build or overnight maintenance or whatever it is:

 

1. Location info is now shown for each post

 

2. User level & points are now shown for each post

 

3. The popup overlay that appeared when the pointer was over the poster's icon is gone

 

4. Clicking on a (large?) image in a post no longer pops it up in an overlay; instead it appears in a new page

 

There may be more, but those are what I noticed almost immediately.

    I wouldn't qualify that as an improvement.    Takes longer to load a new page and even longer to then go back to the previous page.

    I agree. That's not an improvement.

    Hi,

     

    I like the new improvements Apple made.  Also, I would like to add that each post now shows the date and time at which it was posted.

    Well, first of all, on further checking it seems to vary from topic to topic -- for me some load in new pages & some don't. But the improvement I am now seeing (when they do load in a new page) was with graphics that previously appeared in a overlay that was too wide for the screen & the browser window could not be scrolled to see all of it. At least in a separate page, I can now see the whole thing.

     

    I also have the option to open the graphic in a new browser tab, which eliminates the need to reload the 'parent' page.

    I've seen it explained that when lower-case file suffixes are used (.jpg, .png, etc.), images will open in the lightbox overlay.

     

    When uppercase suffixes are used, (.JPG, .PNG, etc.), images will open in a separate window.

    and going to "latest" reply in a long thread actually takes you to the real latest reply.  Getting easier and easier to move around these communities.

    Unfortunately, for me that is still hit or miss, & there are far more misses than hits.

    Likewise.
