Like the look, but without the "Lounge" functionality, the rebuild of FreshMeat is of _zero_ use to me.
With the lounge I could at least come by and say "show me the new stuff since last time" and get a complete listing of new apps. Went away for vacation, didn't matter, it was all there on one page.
Without the Lounge, there isn't a reason for me to come to FreshMeat any more; I'm left to dig and hunt to find out what was "new" since my last visit. A big pain in the ass.
