We know that giving our community mechanisms for sharing and receiving feedback is important. In her recent blog post, Meg Risdal described some of the ways that our Public Q&A product team is working to improve the way our system helps users share and receive feedback. I’m pleased to announce that starting today we are rolling out our new post notice system on Stack Overflow and across the entire Stack Exchange network. 

As a reminder, post notices are the informational banners that sometimes appear on closed, duplicate, and other questions. …

Q: OK if lechem mishneh is partially cut?

Josh GrinbergI'm wondering if I can use use some bread that is partially sliced (but not completely severed in two) as lechem mishneh. An example is a bagel that was cut 90% of the way through, meaning that the two halves are still attached on one end. Is this permissible? Is it less than ideal?

Looks like they updated the bounty notices, too. They now show the user who placed the bounty, and they're in blue and at the top of posts to match the new close/on hold notices.
I still agree with this answer from when this was first announced on meta, which says that on hold notices shouldn't feature the names of those who voted to close. I like that they deemphasized that, but I feel it shouldn't even be mentioned, whether to the OP or to the community.
