In spite of the lack of any recent news, PBW2 development is not on hiatus! We are currently working on revamping the layout of the site. There is a beta (beta) version of the site where the new UI can be previewed.
This thread will be the running discussion on the new UI until it is launched.

A few notable changes include:

- New color scheme.

- Removal of HTML tables, general redesign of pages that used to use them.

- Reduction of the "sidebar" as a barrage of links. Most controls have been moved to more sensible locations in the pages. The goal is that the sidebar will just display other semi-related items on a few pages. e.g. other articles in a news category.

- Prototype mobile version of the site. Currently, the main changes involve a reduction in the navigation menu. Over time, we will be optimizing pages for mobile view. At present, there is no browser detection in place; the mobile version must be navigated to manually.
