It's a different system, with different possibilities.
I find the filter system very easy to use compared to Mantis, so I won't miss the old one.

One can lament the demise of the old system, but in time I suspect most will adapt to the new one.

As said, I'm looking at creating a frontpage for a mantis-like overview.
With pas2js it should be easy to do.
