    This morning we've launched a long awaited MacRumors redesign as well as a number of under-the-hood improvements. It may take some time for the new design to propagate completely, so if you aren't seeing it, please be patient.

    If you have any specific issues with the new design, please email us any bugs reports and we'll try to address them as quickly as possible. Here are some of the new features and changes:

    - Full RSS Feeds - All existing RSS subscribers have been automatically upgraded to full content feeds. If for some reason you prefer the truncated feed, we are continuing to offer that at this url.
    - Fixed or Fluid - The default view for the site is now a fixed-width design. For those who prefer a fluid (variable) width design, you can turn it On or Off. If you change your mind later, the links for those settings are at the bottom of this page.
    - Page Load Times - Pages will load faster and the site will be able to handle more traffic.
    - Content Changes - The content of the MacRumors front page will remain the same. As always, it will highlight the most significant iOS and Mac news and rumors. Page 2 has been retired and has evolved into a Mac Blog, and our iPhone Blog will expand to cover iOS and iPad topics.

    RSS Feeds

    - All MacRumors Stories
    - Front Page - Existing subscribers have been upgraded to this feed.
    - Mac Blog - Existing Page 2 subscribers have been upgraded to this feed.
    - iOS Blog - Existing iPhone subscribers have been upgraded to this feed.

    Social Media

    - @MacRumors on Twitter - our comprehensive Twitter feed. We also offer individual components at @MacRumorsFP, @MacRumorsMac, @MacRumorsiOS
    - MacRumors on Facebook - Like and share MacRumors stories on Facebook.

    I dig it, but why so constrained? Just a little wider please, maybe 20% more.

    It looks really good.

    Is the vote button going to come back or is that gone for good?

    It's waaay better than it used to be.

    However, I'd rethink the black "active" tabs.

    It's too contrasty and stark.

    I'd find a color that blends better with the overall palette.

    The main page crashes almost instantly on IEv9. The forum works normally, though. Looks nice, BTW :)
