You have a JIRA account and yet you have no idea what JIRA is?

No commits != No development, you know?
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

JIRA is "the new" BugZilla, if I may say (it's our new issues tracker). The new website is here: http://new.reactos.org

You're probably the only one that likes the current site. I as the person responsible for maintaining the content can't wait until I no longer have to deal with the giant mess known as RosCMS.

It's all about the new CMS - the look is more or less the same one from the old website.

Re-registering and logging in was a bit of a pain though, with some graphical glitches and "BSOD's" here and there. I hope new users won't get the same experience... Also if i'm browsing a sub-forum, like "General Discussion" and i try to change the language on the left, i get No input file specified.

i had the same issues you did only i refuse to create a new account i don't like the new look sorry but i don't like change not because it looks different but it because the old site worked. "it ain't broken don't fix it"

The new site is definitely more minimalist than the old site. If you like a big blank page with nothing on it, the new ReactOS site is awesome!

I know, in my head, that it has the same information as the old site, but somehow there's a lot more white space which creates the impression of less content. I don't know if the text is smaller or the margin between elements is larger, but there just seems to be a lot less to look at than before.

The old CMS was awful, and also one of the reasons why there weren't many updates on the main site. So this is a welcome change.

With that being said, priority should be put on fixing the current state of half-brokenness ASAP. Simply logging in to the forum gives you a BSOD and the language buttons don't work as expected. The new website launch feels a bit premature.

The "Lot less to look at" you're talking about is the fundraiser info that was on the old front page.
