    We'll be making ongoing changes and updates. Please discuss in the ongoing thread.

    I'll try to document things here as we go. "Watch" this thread to receive notifications when there are updates.

    In latest version

    - Minimum height of posts is smaller, so less white space for one line replies
    - Quote block modified. Tried to mute it a little more, background to off-white. Might help overall page brightness complaints. Also rounded corners.
    - Report button moved to the far right grouping so it's not in the way
    - Performance updates, so header doesn't take so long to appear
    - Removed turquoise "New" color
    - Forum Spy is in early testing
    - Links in rich text editor now look like links
    - Footer now shows live links from TouchArcade and AppShopper
    - Other minor fixes

    Thanks to http://www.audentio.com for their ongoing efforts

    - Slightly darkened the background color to address brightness concerns

    Edit: also darkened quote background to make changes relative to each other

    Lots of little changes

    - Cleaned up nav bar, made it more consistent across the site
    - Fixed an issue where page would shift around due to ad loading.
    - removed Google integration from profile, since it's broken
    - other minor stuff I'm forgetting

    - removed the blue "new" indicators on threads. They were redundant. Bold also indicates new. And as far as I can tell, they don't link differently than the titles. And I think it looks better without them. Their alignment was off.
