They're still tweaking it.
I do like the fact that they moved the Stats button over right next to the Dashboard button. I use that the most; now to get them to make the Stats button visible from all admin screens!
But I'm not a huge fan of the vertical layout, and it does seem to encorporate a lot of repetition. There's also some kind of glitch, either here or at Google, because last week it shows all my Gawker comments as incoming links; this week it hasn't counted any of them. Strangeness.
