Well we have applied the first part of v5 for you all to enjoy.
In Stage 1 we have redesigned the navbar as well as switching to jQuery for forum tab generation along with other features.
We will be rolling out the changes for v5 over several stages for the next few days to allow final load testing with real load and complete testing (and sleep).
If you experience any issues please try to grab a screenshot and post it in the "Site Problems" forum.
To deal with various mobile device issues and our old cookie based thread marking system we have switch to database tracking.
