The old version of the software was full of security vulnerabilities and needed to be updated to a more modern, more secure version.

Recent Posts.. gone. That's a security risk?
The plan is that the New Topics button and Topics by date should provide the functionality of the old Recent Posts button.
I can say that, based on my experiences on another Forum that made the v4 to v5 jump, the admin team has done an exceptional job of retaining the look and feel of the Forum.
Let's wait and see what additional tweaks can be done once the new version is stable.

Needs to filter out posts that have already been read
It took me 2 minutes to figure out how to do "reply". Maybe it could use, oh, I don't know, a REPLY button?!?

And yes, needs to filter out read posts.

Really, I don't mind new functionality, just don't break the old functionality.

How do you get the list of "threads with new posts in them?" I don't want to see a list of posts; I want to see a list of updated threads, without snippets.

Someone please PM with how to do that because I don't think I'll be able to find this later.

Improvements are one thing; but making it completely different is another.

Help! It took me ten minutes to get this far. Are there any forum instructions? Where is the "new posts" since last visit button?

Please add me to the "do not like" list!
