Hey, I've just been able to get onto CF now after some down time, and have experienced the new look.
Its okay I have to admit, though I didn't like it at first, for example the post logos so you knew if you'd posted in a thread or not weren't as clear to me.
I didn't really see a need to change it though, because I don't know much about forum builders, so didn't see it as out of date.
The new look will grow on me I'm sure though. The biggest change for me has to be within threads, where our pictures are now at the top of the posts.
Plus, we can now delete our own posts if we want to
(It looks like the logo is going to change now though. Its gone for the minute)
