    I have an article about the new version here:

    http://pokemonshowdown.com/news/version0.9

    But in case you wanted some place to discuss it, have a thread about it.

    FAQ

    Q: Will you support custom backgrounds?
    A: Yes, eventually. Right now you can just choose between waterfall and solid blue.

    Q: Will you bring back Meloetta?
    A: Yes, eventually. Keep an eye out!

    All I have to say is...

    I'm famous!

    (excellent work Zarel! All major improvements and pretty much everything that I've thought would be great but too lazy to suggest.)

    This version looks far more aesthetically pleasing than the last one, and runs much faster. Everything looks so much nicer.

    Fantastic job!

    They do indeed sound like cool people!

    Hard to believe it's still the beta. This has really brought PS beyond perfection.

    I thought it looked like meh at first but now I really enjoy it. Once I changed the background back to blue and noticed I could disable animations etc I began to realize it's a major improvement. I haven't used the teambuilder yet so I'm not sure if that's changed, but everything I've seen so far is really nice. Great job.

    The background. It's just so frickin beautiful. On an alternative note, more than one PM box can be on-screen at a time, which I find rather nice. I, no wait, most of the entire PS! community- heck even most of Smogon probably- expected great things from you Zarel, and you most certainly did not disappoint. Keep up the amazing work, and I can't wait to see what the full version brings!

    EDIT: The teambuilder is basically the same, except you can move and erase individual Pokemon.

    I love the great strides that the UI is making. Let's hope things continue!

    I've already started playing with custom CSS for it. :)

    the teambuilder has the ability to move and delete Pokemon, PP for moves, and most importantly SLIDEY EVs!

    anyways, the improvements are beyond belief. 10/10 would play again

    When I first got on Showdown today, I was surprised, and a bit worried that the new format might be confusing, but it's definitely a great improvement!

    This is GREAT :D! It's just so much better and amazing and awesome and enthralling and I just can't stop ranting on about how fucking epic it is.

    The impossible happened: PS! just got better.

    It works more smoothly and freezes up less than than the old one, so I like it! If only there were more backgrounds than "Waterfall" and "Solid Blue"...
