Now, this may be a personal preference, but on the old forums, the "View new posts" link led me to viewing ALL unread posts. I greatly preferred that to where the "Show unread posts since last visit" link leads me, which is, well, to a page showing unread posts since my last visit. I understand that this may be preferable for some people, but occasionally, due to some sort of glitch, or something, unread posts since my last visit will be nothing, and I'll have to go to "view all unread posts" to see them. It's a minor inconvenience to have to click another link, but an inconvenience all the same. I just personally preferred when the link on the forum home led to all unread posts. :)

It looks a little crowded up there now, but I like it a lot! Thank you. :D

I agree. It is a little crowded. Does anyone actually use "Show unread posts since last visit"? It seems like the version people would only use if "Show all unread posts" did not exist. I might just get rid of that. :P

I used it, yes, but now the new option is there I probably won't. I won't be using the 'show new replies to your posts' either, but maybe others do.

Glad to see the "Show all unread posts" option!  When available, it's the only one I use, personally.  I was glad to see it implemented as I had a few problems with starting up the game that I had to check the forums for, but I didn't want to read posts on the actual game yet as I didn't get to download it until a few hours after everyone.
Finally a place where no one will ask me what my screenname means or how to pronounce it!
