This release includes some major redesign of the user interface. If you have any ideas for further design improvements, please join in the discussion.
For starters, there is now a splash screen. I took about 5 minutes to make it, so if you think you can do better please send us a pull request.
The Bluetooth and USB menus are now under the “Wireless and Networks” menu (previously called “Networking”). Bluetooth devices with networking support now have a button that links to the network connection. There is also a new, separate menu for Wi-Fi.
Also under the “Wireless and Networks” menu, there is now a “Tethering” menu that allow you to enable tethering via USB or Bluetooth. It is easier to setup a network connection this way since there is no configuration required on your host computer, however the EV3 cannot access the Internet via tethering.
There are now Bluetooth and Wi-Fi indicators in the status bar too.
There are also some bug fixes, mostly related to network connections. You can find the full changelog here.
