There have numerous suggestions in the past year for improving the functionality of ez.no. Which of these are in place with the new site revision? Im concerned that we will be forced to iterate through suggesting the same suggestions again, rather than move forward and focus on important areas.
Could you put together a list of the upgrades and in which areas they apply - community/documentation/bugs etc?

This update of the website has mainly been new design and structure of the site. We are also doing some changes to the community section, all of which are not published yet:
New bug system with filtering
New documentation, both menu and structure (Will continue to update this the next weeks)
Cathegories in contributions (not out yet).
Pluss other minor changes.
We do also have other ideas, like blogs, event calender etc, and also have the other suggestions from the forums and from the summer conference. But we will not get time to do very may of these in this round, as we will prioritise these resources to eZ publish 3.4 development for now
But we would like all ideas to how we can improve to community section on our website. Please post your inputs ind ideas in this forum as we do see you

Sounds good. Did the 'literal' tag go in for the forums?
Im hoping all suggestions so far can be digested, categorised, even some acted upon, in time for the next conference. It would be a shame to repeat everything again.
Am looking forward to the promised discussion for 3.4

<b>I</b> just did an <i>upgrade</i>. You can now use the following in the forum replies:
code: pre text code b: bold text i:italic text
I also disabled the smilies ( at least for now ), since they mess things up

I like the new design very much!
But I have an additional suggestion: Please increase the font size of the normal text! (of e.g. <p>-tags) (The font size in the bug report section at http://ez.no/community/bug_reports is perfect!)
At the moment (and before) it's hard to read text on ez.no.
Thanx in advance.
PS.: If you want to enable smileys again, take a look at my worttoimage-operator which I posted at the contribution-section.

the font-size of the "<p>"-Tag is better. (But I would prefer it, if it's bit bigger)
-> The font size of a text-area is too small (was better before)
-> some css settings seems to be broken,

the text " also disabled the smilies ( at least for now ), since they mess things up
appears bigger than the other text.

I agree with Paul that the text in the form fields (specifically textareas) is uncomfortably small to look at. I would highly recommend that you consider abandoning the use of percentage-based font sizes in your CSS as they cause many unintended issues such as this. Specifying the sizes relatively is a great thing, but I think you might be better served by using different values like:
While avoiding 'larger' and 'smaller' and em variants. Following this methodology will provide you some granularity of control while avoiding the odd compounding of percentages (60% of 70% of 95%). It also ensures everyone can resize the text to sizes they find convenient unlike pixel-based values.
Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.

I'm agree with you, we were using a system like this before changing for EZP, you hardly will use more than a few font sizes in your web site, we used to have:
Every one can then tune this classes as needed
The percentage is super-flexible, but I think this approach is more user friendly and should solve the 99% percent of the cases
In fact our web designer complains with the percentage approach, because it is more difficult to figure out at first
