when in new profile, the DOWNLOAD nav button is highlighted
It's highlighted in the older profile too. You can still access the old profile by following your own Member link within a thread.
cannot readily see if/when any new reply to your topics

says I have to log in when I AM logged in (duh... how'd I get there from my PROFILE link if not?)
Right now, I think we're dealing with two different and independent profiles.
So I guess you can be logged into one but not the other.
too many pages to view and too many clicks to see the info
I disagree. I've now got my themes as well as my threads & personal details in my profile. That's going to be useful if you are a theme or plugin developer.
says I am "not recently active" HUH? I post a lot... and in Ideas, etc too.
I'd guess that this will sort itself out very quickly. The new profile has only been active for a few hours and it seemed to go through without any problems (all credit to those responsible) - which is no mean feat in itself.
