Very nice. I like it a lot.
While I think we could use some re-evaluations of the categories, presenting
them in this way works well I think. I think we won't have such a deep or
wide hierarchy that displaying them all will be too confusing. The thing I
really like about this is that I can figure out exactly what's going on in one
quick glance, and can probably find my way to the section I care about very
easily (certainly much more easy than today).
I wonder, would it be possible to put tooltips on those menu items?
