There are many back stage changes (e.g. finally I wrote some tests). The change that might be the most important, especially for module authors is that from now one can subscirbe to e-mail alerts to any module based on your PAUSEID. That includes any future modules as well.
This can be done on mypan
In addition there is a collection of all the posts made to modules by PAUSEID. In my case that would be CPAN::Forum of SZABGAB. While looking at that page with Firefox you get an RSS feed sign in the location bar. Clicking on it will let you add the rss feed of the given PAUSEID to your Bookmarks Toolbar.
