The forum software is evolving - a bit - again.
The Hamburger menu has been reworked.
It has new shortcuts, you can customize which categories you want to have shortcuts to, and there’s also a direct link to your personal messages at the bottom.
There is a setting that I can enable that will make this menu a togglable sidebar. The sidebar will be shown until you click the hamburger again, so everyone can choose if they want or not have the sidebar on screen.
It would look like this:
Since this setting affects everyone, I’ll make a poll in the future so you can choose if you prefer to have this togglable sidebar (it implies the hamburger icon before the forum’s logo) or not.
Or maybe I’ll activate it as a sidebar for some time (like 2 weeks, a month?) and see what you prefer after trying both options.
In either case, the sidebar is automatically disabled on mobile.

Your “profile menu” (that’s a lot of menus…) is the last icon:
They aren’t drastic changes, mostly layout tweaks and a bit more customizable options and filters. It should not change how you use the forum, except for power users.
And for mega-power users, you can use most of the forum’s features using keyboard shortcuts, try typing
? or click the keyboard icon at the bottom of the hamburger menu.
