They look quite awful and are harder to decipher. Really want the matte notification badges back. Any idea how to revert to the old ones, via some sorta plist editing perhaps? Ta in advance. :)

Now that you've mentioned it, I did notice it. It only affects the article list column, thus preventing you from scrolling up/down. But it doesn't really affect me since I highlight the very top article from the start and use J key to navigate to the next one. :)

Glad its not me... I sent the dev a message on twitter to see if he knew! Doubt it gets fixed right away, as it doesn't really affect many people currently!

I think they're find. I'm not blind, so I have no issues reading them.

You can read them, but they are surely harder to read than the matte ones. At least, make them optional, Apple. :mad:

They look just like the iOS version. This isn't exactly a surprise.

But to me they're not. I find them just as readable as before. Just because you find them less readable doesn't mean everyone else does.

They look perfect on iPhone. Very clear and easy to read. Whereas on Mac, white numbers look awful towards the upper part of the circle, which appears to be glossy/whitish. Have a look:

And here's the old badge, using the same color tone throughout the entire circle perimeter:

If it bothers you that much, log onto ADC and file a bug report with Apple. It's not a bug per se, but the bug tracker can be used to provide feedback on features or changes that you feel could be improved.

I tend to have quite small icons in the dock - and then it definitely makes a difference (new style is completely illegible). With big icons I don't think it matters, so I wonder if those people who don't mind it tend to use a larger dock setting?

I don't like them because they're too small, too badly anti-aliased and thus too hard to read. My dock is quite small and it was just fine with Snow Leopard, now I feel like it would require me to make my Dock twice as big, like in the Apple Stores, which looks horrible.

I like 'em 'cause they get my attention. Guess they're working as intended.
