I see new conversations interface - so far so good after few minutes of working with it. But first thing which stopped me - i found no way to download attached to the post file, did i miss something?
No announcement of what was changed. It looks like "unread posts" is still in progress.

Well, it's prettier now, but I miss the preview functionality. I interact with the Tech community mainly from the browser, and being able to see the first few lines of a post/reply was great, can we get an option for this maybe?

Yes, agree, it will be great to have such setting.
By the way, found in settings "Jump to first unread post in a topic". Or it was before and i dind't use?

Just for the history - in new conversations interface all except MVP:s are from Microsoft (blue cycle)
I guess update is still in progress...

That's if the image is within the text of the message. I found no difference compare to what was before, did you?
Still have no idea how to open/download the file attached to the post.

Hi everyone, thanks for reaching out. A post to come with full details on the latest updates. I'll respond to each of the points in the thread above:

Hi @Anna Chu, thanks for this update.
IMHO, attachments issue is the most critical bug, hope your team will fix it soon.
I found no red strips near the unread posts. Instead their subjects are in bold in "new" Space list interface, no changes at other places.

Thanks Sergei, hear you on priorities. We're working on fixing attachment download.
Regarding supported browsers, we test the Tech Community on the top 5 most used browsers worldwide - Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Microsoft Edge. These browsers represent 95% of usage worldwide. We're doing the best we can to support the majority of users, but have to prioritize our efforts for maximum impact. Any chance you can opt for any one of the five mentioned?

Well yeah, the bolding of "unread" items is hard to spot, and with the lack of preview it's even harder to remember which ones I've read already. Plus, the bolding doesnt seem to persist across sessions.
@Sergei Baklan I'm browsing the community over IE and I dont see the glitches you posted above.

@Vasil Michev, I checked today IE on my corporate PC and it works more or less okay. The only point i practically can't differ bolded and unbolded text in it. In other browsers that's bit better, but also not a big difference.
As I remember that's an old issue with IE, we have to add or remove something in sites list for trusted zone, after that it works. Perhaps that was done on corporate PC and I have to correct settings on my Surface. But I practically don't use IE, thus don't care. Keep it mainly for compatibility, some seldom sites still workd better in IE.
