A design update is now live!

Most of the changes are not visible; these tweaks go along with recent updates that were made to Stack Overflow:

  • We moved the site's CSS to a newly refactored LESS system, so that it's easier for us to fix SE network CSS bugs globally and launch new features in the future.
  • We updated the graphics to SVG for retina support.
  • We've fixed a LOT of obscure bugs that arose when new features were not thoroughly tested across the entire network.
  • We have launched a shiny new user profile!

Visually it should "feel" the same as the old site with slight layout adjustments.

This update should retro-actively fix most of the old design bugs. If you see any new bugs, or old ones not yet fixed, please post an answer here to let us know!

The favorite star noticeably moves to the right when it's enabled.

When greyed out, it's aligned with the voting arrows.


When yellow, it is not aligned:


The screenshots are from this meta post; the main site shows the same behavior.

The colour choices for normal links and visited links in the hot network questions is counter-intuitive, as visited link get emphasised instead of de-emphasised:

    $\begingroup$ I just pushed a fix. This should go live on our next production server build. $\endgroup$ Jun 5, 2015 at 14:27
