Christmas Day Launch of Platform v2 and Launcher v3

Hi. We're going to be launching the new Platform and Launcher out of beta on Christmas Day. For those of you that have been using the site, thank you, your testing and reports have been invaluable.

We've done everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible, but as is always true with massive changes like this there will be unforseen consequences. We'll let you know if anything changes.

I am trying to play Diamond Dimensions and it keeps loading them just closing before it works properly. Also you go to the modpack's url then click where it says install this modpack and the launcher will open and you can install it

Can we please have an option to have the old launcher because this new one hits so many pet peeves it's not even funny! 1. the lag 2. you can't cap past 1gb of ram anymore without being a java coder that is a real issue with this shit it severely pisses me off. 3. I have seen no improvements in this at all all it does is visually appeal and spam.

For the ones having trouble installing mod packs copy a mod pack URL and at the right bottom of the Technic launcher it will say install you don't have to paste it anymore.

Please restore the changelog on my Modpack. There was a textarea before and now it's gone. That is crap! There was certain information in my changelog and I need them back for restores on my server!!!

Why the hell did you do away with the old launcher? It was working way better than this one. The original technic modpacks wont show up and all other sorts of weird crap is happening! I don't think I am alone in this boat!
I'm mac and I cannot launch my modpack at all

Its not the best update thats happened, on my modpack my about tab and the changelog have been wiped, things are a lot slower on the new launcher and every pack seems to be stuck in offline mode apart from the official technic ones, and also what happened to the disqus discussion tab will that be added later on or will there be another feature like it because that was a very useful thing, hopefully you get all the issues fixed soon

Lets just say this STUPID WEBSITE doesn't tell you how to use solder. It just says install. Not how to actually install it to your account and HOW TO FREAKIN USE THE ACTIVATION CODE!!!!! If any of you guys could help, you'll see no more complaining from me. It's either teach me how to use Solder, or tell me a website to use as a good download link. Because dropbox sucks.

Am I the only one who thinks trying to do a software deployment on one of the busiest days of the year was a bad idea? If I had a nickle for every 502, 504, bad gateway, "Whoops, something went wrong" error I've received, I be rich.

Didn't find any of my installed packs, didn't find a way to install a new pack not in the list. Installing those in the list just doesn't work. Interesting Xmas gift.

How are you supposed to add custom or private packs now? The search function doesn't work and pasting the pack URL in the search bar does nothing. Thanks for breaking the launcher; it's useless now.

Your website is having a very hard time responding, it keeps crashing. Also, I cannot find captainsparklez survival modpack (PixelSpark) anywhere. This is really making me mad because the launcher didn't save any of the modpacks I had previously installed, and I can't re-install them because either the page won't load, or I simply just can't find it.
