The Preview button was moved from below the box, to in the box.

Shades of Grey theme changed to blue.

I've just added code and inline code buttons. Would anyone use the inline code buttons? Someone want to try it?
inline code test

Re: Preview button, I guess it's a Toggle button. You have to click it again to go back to edit mode.

What was it before: Shades of Grey or Shades of Blue?

Hey, was the Preview button on the right in existence before? I think I've just clicked it for the first time. Pretty cool!
There's always been a preview button but it used to show you a preview in a totally separate area below where you were typing. This new version tries to render the exact area where you're typing as if it's a preview. I think it falls a little short, but I do give it credit for using the same space which is kind of cool in a novelty way.

An oddity - my post didn't show up when I came back to this thread.

And then suddenly it DID show up. Bizarre.

Doc, clear your browser cache. I had all sorts of issues like no toolbar until I did that.

Cleared. Now we will see what happens for a while.

There are many feature improvements with this version of Xenforo. Think I need to post a list.

It was a browser cache issue. I cleared my cache and all is good with the world again.

Ah yes, the new blue dark colours. I like it tool I think that was a mistake on my part! I might give 3 template choices. Shades of Grey (the original dark style), Shades of Blue (this one) and the default Xenforo theme.

If it looked the same as in the thread, then how can you tell its a preview? It would also require the text to jump around the screen to move it into the "correct" place. I think what they did was perfect, IMHO.

Not that it matters an awful lot, but my alerts came back as though it forgot that I had viewed the associated posts already.

I think many of these issues will resolve themselves as the caches get cleared.

It seems like the icon that indicates you've responded on a thread is not as distinctive as it used to be. I want to say it used to be a blue eyeball? Now it's harder to notice:
