Well, so far it seems to be working, mostly. Load times seem a bit snappier, but then I'm back early, so maybe that's just because so few people are here right now.
There does seem to be a little weirdness. When I first click in from a forum header, I can see only 5 or 6 posts. I have to actually click on a post and go back to the main page in order to see all the posts. I hope that's just because I'm back early and things aren't quite ready yet.
It appears that the ability to set the default tab (Overview, All, or Discussions) is per person.
Try clicking the Discussions tab from the home page of the forum and then clicking the "Set as default tab" text to the right of the tabs. This should set your default view to the all-discussions view.
That worked for me.
It is also "per forum," so I see no option to set all the Premiere forums from one page - there is no "discussions" tab at the top level (since posts are not allowed at that level).
I really like seeing the thread when I'm posting, and the editing etc is snappy.
Still very slow to load pages, but I'm still using IE (v7). So I tried firefox; pages load quickly there. Aha.
But the "Set as default tab" was not set in Firefox, and I was not able to set it there. (V 3.6.14)
This is a great improvement. Much better performance and the first indication of the benefits, that were not really clear on the testing server. There are still a few things missing, but I expect they will be added in the coming days.
Compliments to John and his team for realizing this so quickly.
One side note: Users have to check their notification settings in their profile, because these are reset with the update.
The pop-up flyout that appears when the cursor is hovered over
a user's profile name would previously display only the threads
that were initiated by that user, now all of the user's recent activity
is displayed instead.
Adding the reply that the original poster has designated as the
'correct answer' to the original post is an interesting function,
but it can be detrimental for a user who may not read the subsequent
responses that provide more complete (and often better) information
regarding the problem in question.
A skimmer may only read the original post with the 'correct' response, and
not gain the benefit of of the nuance and corrections that usually follow.
Also, it is often the case that the OP does not recognize a response as
incomplete or not entirely incorrect, and designates the post as 'correct'
Adobe pages used to be soooo slow on a mac (safari and firefox) - now you are running! Also: finaly I can answer from iphone and even ipad (that didn´t work at all, I allways thought of it as Adobe´s revenge for Steve Job´s Childish-ness in regards of ignoring Flash). Good Job!
And, hey, a "like" button is something all facebook-Junkies are used to, so why not under a serious environment like this forum?!

What is more, not just recent activities of a user, but threads recently updated by someone, in which a user ever participated...
Not sure if it's relevant approach to introduce participants briefly...

This feature may just discourage ones from exploring details or even mislead...
Kind of glad that I missed the "roll out," but things are better, than on the test server, so it will take a bit more exploring to get my head around how things work on a synced server.
Seems to be better in most respects, and will just take time to learn the latest Jive in the real world.
Kudos to John C. and the entire Adobe team.
>things are better
One thing that is WAY better is the editor does not insert random line breaks or other odd spacing
The forums DO have newest messages at the top, but they do NOT have unread messages in bold (and also no option to mark all messages as read)
I of course don't know if this is permanent or just an option that has not been set, but since I check each forum that has MY interest every day, I can easily look for messages that have dates since I was last reading (usually 12-15 hours for being away overnight to sleep)
It would be "nice" to have un-read messages in bold, with the option to set all messages to read status, but that is just a nice to have feature that is not as important, to me, as a working editor
I am glad you agree about not embedding the OP's designation of the "correct"
answer out of context into the original post. Good luck in getting it turned off.
What is your opinion of how the pop-up flyout that appears when the cursor is
hovered over a user's profile name now displays a mish-mash of not just recent
activities, but threads recently updated by someone, in which a user ever participated?
It seemed much more informative to be able to see the content that was
originated by that user in chronological order as it was before the update.
For example, moderators could tell at a glance if the poster has
made identical posts regarding the same issue in multiple forums.
Feedback about the forums in general (as opposed to about this forum) would be better put here:
That's where the people who control the underlying forum software are paying close attention.
