So it's what Frederik says, but it goes further. Not only does noone get 
informed, when there are changes noone (except the developers and maybe 
the happy few that get told) know how to use the new interface.

That's the second thing I had to find out by first complaining that "it 
doesn't work".
And that's not a good thing. I find it out here. How does someone who 
only uses the map find out?
