You will certainly find it since it is pretty clear. Almost all GUI

I already said that the changes are minor. Basically some UI
polishing, nothing that would be worth calling a change.

Go to the menu and toggle "View Menubar". How did you miss this?

As I said, the user installation dialog was added for a number of
reasons. I don't see why I should let it disappear for no good reason.
