There are several new features I like, but imo the best new feature is the “dark” preference. I have vision issues (with bright lights) and I find white text on a dark background to be far more comfortable for my eyes.
I switched to the dark theme as well. Easier on the eyes.
What are you talking about? What “board” software?
The message board. (This forum.) The software was recently upgraded and it has some new features.
