a recent update of phpBB revealed a security issue, which forced us to update rather quickly. Because of this we have not yet been able to adjust the styles - sorry for the inconvenience.
Please let us know if you experience any hiccups.
on the main page, there used to be a list of recent topics, with all the topics updated / created since the last visit.
It was quite handy to catchup on latest posts, but I can't see it anymore since the update.
On the index page, there're 2 groups at the moment "Kryoflux" and "The Software Preservation Society", isn't it possible to add a 3rd group "recent posts" that is shown only when you're logged ? I think it's easier when you log to immediately see what changed recently, instead of going through a menu.
Previous choice "recent topics" shows the new posts only since your last visit.
So, if I log today it would show me for example 5 topics. And even if I don't read those 5 topics and log again in 7 hours, those 5 topics won't be shown anymore in the "recent list", either the list will be empty, or it will show me topics where there was some activity during the last 7 hours.
This is more like an incremental view of the topics.
Well, I can live without it if it doesn't exist anymore (if you have an account on atari-forum, this list still exists, so you can see what it looks like).
Having said that, the page you are probably thinking of is this one. On the old forum it was called "View posts since last visit" and on the new forum it's called "New posts" as mr.vince already mentioned. If you always access the forum through that URL, then when you log in you'll get the list of posts since you last logged in, and they will disappear automatically as they used to.
