Only problem I see is that I have the selection "see user info to the left" checked, but I see everyones name and info on top of their post..... very annoying...

Otherwise seems to be running good....

The option to select legacy (vertical) or new (horizontal) user info layout has been implemented. You will have to go to your user profile and select the option again.
UserCP > Edit Options > Thread Display Options > User Info Layout
