You better pay close attention to this so-called beta – it will go live with little changed and any content that is in the old style template will probably be dropped unless someone says they need it. Would advise all to write out some scenarios of things they do now on the old site and then try to do on this site to see how functional it is – it’s not about how pretty it is in the end; it’s about how useful it is.

Looks like no difference to the PAIR/EFS-Web, though, which is the meat of the site for a practitioner. That and the HTML MPEP which is easily Googleable.
