We just finished upgrading the forum. There are some new features, but the majority are behind the scenes. One of the things we fixed was the Facebook connect. Now you can create an account simply by connecting with your Facebook account. In addition, you may notice that if you click on the "What's New" Tab you will be brought to the "activity feed", this shows all the activity on the forum. To find the traditional what's new layout, simply click on the "New Posts" tab next to where it says "activity feed". This was an upgrade, and problems do arise. So please if you find something is wrong, or not functioning properly, please post it in this thread to let us know.
