Today the team made an announcement regarding new channels on the YouTube blog (http://youtube-global.
Hope this info's helpful, and have a good weekend!
We want to give you a heads up that we're changing the day on which we'll move all remaining channels over to the new version. Why? Well, July 15th is almost here, and we realized that we still have a few bugs and things left on the to-do list.
Specifically, here's what we plan to do before we roll the new version out to all remaining channels:
*** Add transparency (now done)
*** Fix some browser-specific layout bugs - in particular, IE6 has a few issues right now
*** Allow you to default your channel to "grid" view
*** Allow you to re-order your uploads & playlists
*** Fixes for some of the other bugs you've helped find (such as grid view not always working in IE), and other small things
So when's the new date? That part's a little trickier - rather than try to predict it, we'd rather focus our time on taking care of the above list. But we'll announce the new date no less than 2 weeks before it happens - and yes, it's still coming this summer. Keep an eye out here or on our beta blog (http://youtube-channels-beta.
