Not keen on that.
That's about the only real functional change I can see. Otherwise it's been prettied up, and some of the organisational tools have been ajaxified, and I guess they were a little clunky before.
If they mess up my ability to quickly scan over lots of feeds though, they will do more to get rid of me as a user than anything Google Reader has produced so far.

Hmmm, so now the default is for posts to stay unread, rather for them to be set to read unless you specify to keep them?
Adrian, I noticed that too. It works when you hover over the post, but not the other way. I actually had dinner with the GM of Bloglines last week at SES San Jose and have asked him about it. I can tell that it's a bit of a problem for many people.

Yeah, reading a few feeds last night I became confused as some posts got marked read, and others didn't, and I didn't know why?!
The whole having to marks posts as read thing is somethign that bugged me about Google Reader. There were one or 2 other things as well, not biggies, but Bloglines fit my usage style much better. If they are now going to start using Google Reader style functionality, I may have to find another reader

I'll wait and see what happens, but for now I'm still pretty happy with the 'old' version.
Another thing, what's with the smaller text on the beta version? I'm sat looking at a computer screen all day long, the last thing I want when I'm trying to keep up with 80 or so feeds is smaller text that increases eye strain. Again, it's one of the things I quite like about the current version.
