I hate to say that everything was better in the past. I’m an advocate of renewal. Renewal is necessary to gain improvement. And there are always teething troubles with the introduction of something new.
Beta-versions are a good help to avoid premature “going life”. But in my observation there are little differences between the new version and the often criticised beta-version. All constructive criticism was in vain.
This introduction is QUICK AND DIRTY instead of CONSIOUS AND CONSIDERED.
A lot of functions we used regular, disappeared. Up till now no useful new advanced options are to be found.
After a short inspection I found the following items:

No possibility to look at the last pictures and critiques of your favourites.
Mixed and confusing use of member name and username.
No themes in the photo information.
No additional info of photo exif.
No option to add new members to ones group
Etcetera, etcetera

New lay-out: a matter of taste. Advertisement: I understand that is necessary to keep TE free. No comment of me on that. But nevertheless I have to conclude that the introduction of the new version was far too early.
I hate to say that everything was better in the past, but now I do have to say it.
