Huh? That website has been there for a long time. What's new about it?

Seems the same to me? Maybe I am missing something?

HI

German:
Verleicht haben die es nur probeweise getestet, ich habe es jedenfalls gesehen das eine neue version von der website gab, wahrscheinlich mal die alte version raufgehaut, weil die neue version hat etwas laenger gedauert es zu laden....

English:
Easily those tested it only for a test, I have it anyhow seen a new version of the website gave, probably times up-struck the old version, because the new version has somewhat longer lasted it to load....

Ahhh, very nice design! Much better than that old outdated one.

I like it. :D

Personally I'm not a big fan of it. On the main project page, the project details pane (which is where all the good information is) is crammed into the smallest column and at the bottom of the page. Then, some of its information is duplicated (in a tiny font) at the top of the page. Who thinks this stuff up? They also put a lot of information (release dates on the bottom part of the file releases page, for instance) in a tiny font where they have enough room for a decently-sized one, and they waste a huge amount of space on the silly grey boxes around the section headers. Column widths across the site are inconsistent both with each other and with the information displayed. Headers between site-specific and task-specific areas rarely line up nicely, leading to odd white gaps. There are FIVE (count 'em - OSTG, Sourceforge, SF.net, Task-specific, and breadcrumbs) bars across the top of every page.

That said, there are some good points. For one, they finally got rid of that ridiculous sidebar. It's also now very obvious how to download files from a project, which it wasn't before. The front page is far more useful (or shall we say less useless?).
