I've noticed that the recent posts feaure is very poor. The previous version had many ways to filter the recent posts by time(24 hours, week, month, all time..) and sort by popularity or chronologically. This was very useful feature and I was using it all the time to track new and interesting posts/threads. In case you decide to bring it back, I would like to suggest to improve it further by adding an option to sort threads by their creation date. This would be an awesome way to respond immediately to new threads.
