The good news:
This may not seem to be much news at all, but this change signals the fact that FamilySearch.org has finally, after years of waiting, separated the new.FamilySearch.org program from the old new.FamilySearch.org program and we are off to an entirely new experience in functionality. We were told that if the last three changes showed up after the maintenance, then the change over is successful.
One significant effect is that the "Cannot be Merged At This Time" people can now be merged.
Stay tuned. I am going to start working on the program.
