We’ve built a new Community Designer that allows you to create self-service communities and configure single sign-on access portals using templates. You can also add custom pages to your community for login, logout, and self-registration.
Enable nicknames, configure custom domains and Apex triggers, and use the simplified navigation scheme to quickly administer and manage your communities.
In Winter ’15, we’ve added more functionality to the Community Management page, simplified the UI, and added some quick navigation links to the Setup and Community Designer. You can also organize the content in your community with featured and navigational topics.
We’ve made additional dashboards, reports, and metrics available for community managers to track the health of their community.

Configure reputation points for questions and answers in the feed, customize reputation level images, view level-up notifications for reputation level changes, and use Apex triggers to create custom events driven by changes in reputation points.
