I think I did mention some specifics.
You shouldn't take time to learn software you've been using just because it's been changed. Changing for the sake of change makes no sense.
The interface is much more confusing than it was. Everything looks the same on the screen. Not just the fonts, it's an interface issue. I shouldn't have to search all over to find the tiny submit button, which blends in with everything else (just another example).
I hope this gets improved because it just isn't nearly as useful as it was before.
So when a new camera comes out, you don't have to learn it just because it has been changed?
When a new car comes out with new features, new motor, new maintenance regiment, you don't have to learn it?
Both of these are very software-ridden, and regardless of software or hardware, both require you to learn something about it when new versions come out. Every new version of software, online service, etc requires you to go learn something about it. This wasn't a revision, this was a brand-new version. Yes you will have to learn its set up, navigation, and other features.
There are indeed some UI elements and features that need to be made more consistent, but please keep in mind this has been in production as vs 1.0 less than a week. It will get better over time, like EVERY other service on the web that goes live for the first time. This indeed is a new service that has gone live, it just used your old account and database of previous posts to bootstrap it.
Please keep an eye on the release notes and product roadmap threads that Pekka has issued. We (the beta team) apologize that the interface isn't as you would like it, we will try better on future beta testing phases and releases.
