Okay, there's now 6 featured tracks on the frontpage, rather than just 4, bye.

Hrm? If you're referring to entries that might have been there for a while, I don't change those unless I'm testing something, and the page where people do choose that stuff has been broken for who knows how long - I only found out about it today when I went to make the changes myself.

How does the featuring actually work now? The ones in the Featured Content bar at the bottom are sometimes the same as the ones on the frontpage, and other times not. Some stay there for weeks, others don't. Is it still all manual (by mods)?

In the frontpage slots, yes. In the footer, it's pulled in automatically from the weekly winners.

Right, I forgot that I actually knew that.. I just got puzzled when I saw my song there more than a week after it had won the weekly thing (and I checked with various browsers to make sure it wasn't a cache issue).

This still seems somewhat broken. If you're on an audio page, it generally starts the flipper with last week's top4 and then, only after sliding off and then back to audio, it displays the current setting. Not sure if this is a cache issue or what but I don't feel I should have to clear cache to update the list.

Yeah, well that's what happens when no-one messages me with what's wrong. It'll have been like that since last night and I'm sure you weren't the first to notice it. It's fixed now.

This might be a great opportunity to ask you now, liljim: what happened to the Weekly Top 5, what replaced it and can you still get the opportunity to FP-post if you get a spot?

I dunno to both (the latter I could check). With respect to the weekly top 5, maybe that was meant to be in the audio index page, but got left out during development as we use different copies of the database for our info in our dev areas - so there wouldn't have been any weekly winners for the given weeks we'd been working on that stuff. Maybe it should come back at the bottom of the audio index page. I'll ask Tom about that.
