They listened to users' comments and came up with something that is functional and easy to use. Here are some of the features that I believe are great improvements:
- the "Smart search" default finally *is* smart & only seems to search basic keywords rather than all fields in the record (including full-text)
- it's quick -- no more spinning lighthouse!
- easy to change sort order on results page
- there are clear tabs for all results, full-text, and peer-reviewed results
- you can search within results from the results page
- the print/email/save & export options are improved (tho' still clunky)
- the search history page allows you to easily combine results
