Am I missing something or is it just the presentation (css) style that has changed? Or are we talking about any javadoc comment convention/style change? If it's just the presentation that's changed, I guess that was customizable earlier too isn't it?
I've been using it for a while now to get used to it, and while I really like the new style, there are two things that bother me a little bit. First, I would like the method return types to be right-aligned, like they used to be. I really notice that my eyes have to travel around a lot more using the new docs.
Secondly, links should be more emphasized. Maybe black or bold? Right now I easily read over links, and the method names in the summaries draw a lot less attention than they used to.
Thanks a lot! I slightly modified your style and now it's pretty much perfect for me. I'm using the following additions from your CSS (which I just pasted to the end of the .css that comes with the Java 7 api):
I deleted the piece that makes most bold links normal again (I like them bold); I also added the last clause, making the links in summary tables and detailed member descriptions underlined.
