The biggest difference between the two versions is the attribute showcase of each soldier. ( right upper quarter of the equipment screen )
I think that the older one " fits more to xcom " than the modern one.
The left pic is the old one ( from the latest stable ) , the right pic the new one.
Lets hear ur oppinion =b

I think the background graphic to the attribute window is not used in the beta because we're trying to avoid the use of graphics from X-Com. (Which is where the said background is taken from.) Although I can't really see any reason why it couldn't be used if the user has X-Com installed and all the other graphics are taken from there as well (and the "prefer X-Com graphics" option is turned on).

Also, we're planning a complete redesign of the mission planner and all associated screens anyway, so what you see in the current beta pretty much represents a temporary transitional phase. The final version will probably look cleaner and slicker than either of these, although not necessary resembling the original X-Com one at all.

That's true, but if I could choose the interface, it would be this: (attachment below)

OK, any ideas about improving the look of this stats panel? Maybe we can just tweak some colors?

Sure :
Replace the white and light gray with :
either
#000000 and #330066 : black and deep purple
#000000 and #000066 : black and deep blue (fits with the battlescape control panel)
#000000 and #003300 : black and dark green

This should do until we make a custom background for it or redo the mission planner.

Can you try to make this fix yourself, if you have some free time and motivation of course? Also everybody is free to come up with a patch that can improve the look of this stats panel.
