For the most part it looks good.
I hope that the 'last 24 hours' doesn't get forgotten, since this is what I most frequently use. Going to the individual forums has gotten more difficult since the last change and the 24 hour 'recap' makes a visit here more real time.
Also, I agree with the others who voiced concerns over the privacy issue on the profile page; and, with finding the chat room valuable. I do understand the reasoning you gave for discontinuing the chat room; but, can't a modified version of it be considered, maybe a 'upon request' blockage of time for pre approved members?
