We currently have no plans to backport the looks due to the fact that the Thanks Bar is deeply integrated into the functionality of the old version, but that's not to say plans won't change

Nice! Only thing I would mention is that there's now two links that users can use for liking a post.

Much nicer then an easy to abuse reputation system.

But, I notice that regardless of what buttons are active, all the stats are still shown under the usernames in posts.
I only want to use the Like button on my forum so disabled the Dislike and Thanks buttons, but it still shows their stats.
