Functional changes in site makeover?

Are there any new features in the site makeover? All the changes I've noticed are cosmetic.

    Some functional changes that went into place with this new design:

    - Ability to see which discussions have photos, from a category page.

    - Ability to quickly sort category pages in 3 ways (Date of Last Reply, Date of Initial Post, # of Replies)

    - Ability to differentiate between an updated discussion and a completely unread discussion from a category page.

    - New mobile site which contains a "mobile drawer" allowing for easier navigation around Chowhound and other CHOW pages. This is the red box in the top left of the mobile site, which opens a panel of options.

    - Ability to take a picture on your iphone/ipad right from Chowhound, to immediately upload it to a discussion.

    That said, a lot of the changes in this initial release were back-end changes, which will allow us to iterate much more easily in the future. This means that you can expect future changes, including functional ones, to come at a faster rate.
