Magnificent new lay-out in the back-end. I have two minor suggestions to make life just a bit easier though:
- On the dashboard page, you may want to change the background colour of the "right now" bar to something less alarming. Either make it more brown, or more orange. But this gives me the idea something is wrong--and I'm probably not the only one feeling that way :). I'm surprised Happy Cog/Jason didn't consider this in the new design
- On the write page, at the bottom, their should either be a button to "go to top" or a second button to "preview/publish". After I have set all the options, I need to scroll back to the top of the page. Not quite the usability you'd expect. Adding such a button would certainly make a great improvement ;-)
About the redesign and new functions in general: excellent work! It proves you guys want to take a step forward and stay ahead/at the head of competition :).
