Question What happened with USMLE RX? Changed interface?

Today I logged in in USMLERX Qmax - I found that they changed interface and added 415 questions in multisystem in the organ systems. When I started to do suspended block in tutor mode I could not find explanations during the test WTF??? I use Qmax as a study tool.
Does any body know what is going on?

Got this email from the USMLE-Rx team about 2 weeks ago.

January 31, 2014

We've been hard at work over the past year creating the next-generation USMLE-Rx Qmax experience just for you! Over the coming few weeks you will see many new, innovative, and unique features coming your way:
  • Selectable font size - No more squinting!
  • First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 multi-year selector - Don't have the most current edition of the book? Don't worry! We give you 3 years' worth of First Aid facts with the explanations so you can match your edition of the book.
  • Enhanced Tutor mode - If you don't get the answer correct the first time, you can try again until you get it right.
  • Note taking - We are the only Q-bank that allows you to annotate anywhere in the question or explanations - even drag and drop text, hyperlinks, and images from your favorite sites like Wikipedia. Your notes are safely stored with us forever!
  • Highlighting - You can now highlight text in the explanations, and any highlighting you do during a test is saved for later test review.
  • Speedier - We have implemented a more responsive test engine so you can stay focused on scoring high.
  • Test deletion - Remove unwanted tests and simulations that can affect your performance analytics.
  • Available questions by category - You can now see how many questions remain by discipline or organ system when you create a test.

All the things you love about Qmax are still here:
  • High-quality questions linked to explanations from the First Aid authors
  • A realistic USMLE interface identical to your test day
  • Comparison of your performance against other test-takers
  • Selection of questions by general principle, organ system, and difficulty levels
  • All of our other great features

You asked for these upgrades, and we listened. And we're just getting started! Stay tuned for even more new features over the next few months. As always, if you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us at info@usmle-rx.com.

Good luck with your studies!
