As announced last week, the rollout of the new interface has begun and Wikimedia Commons was switched April 6 at 8:00 UTC. No major problems have been encountered so far.
Bug 22041 about problems with scaling GIF images was finally fixed and closed. The behavior is now as intended and only large animations are no longer thumbnailed.
The default thumbnail-size of images was changed from 180 pixels wide to 220 pixels wide on the Commons, following a similar change on the English Wikipedia in February.
All protected pages now have a "Submit an edit request" link on the View Source tab (shown instead of Edit This Page if the user doesn't have permission to edit that page). The link takes users to a form to help them request an edit be made.
