What are the main changes I should be aware of?

Looking for the right-hand panel?

The right-hand panel has been removed in favour of icons held within the editor toolbar. Everything that was accessible in the panel is now available using icons in the editor. These icons are detailed below.

Link directly to content areas in your subject

Subject links now appear under the links button. Here you can link to specific content areas in your subject/community.
