LJ also has a new layout style called Minimalism. The nifty part of the design? Well the empasis on the comments:
I'm hoping that the css is decent for playing with, especially since its a new style.
 Out of all the things listed on the releases page, there were two main bits that made me squee:
"Title of post in Last Post, Friends Pages, Calendar view (every page where displayed multiple entries) now links to entry." - Mixit/Expressive has this already and I ADORE being able to click on titles to get to posts :)
Added 50 additional userpics to Permanent Accounts (so all Perm Accounts should have 195 userpics as of today) ⇒ \o\o/o/
 Why couldn't the Flexible Squares layouts have broken on LJ instead of Smooth Sailing?
Flexisquare might have been my first layout but smooth sailing was my first love D: Ok, so I might have moved onto a long term relationship with Mixit/Expressive and Bloggish (yay for threesomes) but STILL >_> Not cool LJ.
