My Bookmarks Widget


Thanks to an idea by @tom_montpool, we've added a My Bookmarks widget to the home page of the community. Quickly access your bookmarks and stay up-to-date on the content that matters most to you:

Home Page Side Navigation Widget


We have added the popular side navigation widget to the home page of the community for consistency with the rest of the community and even faster navigation:




Design Tweaks, Bug Fixes, and General Improvements


The design is now more design-y, bugs are less buggy, and the site is even fasterer. You're welcome.
