The new Marketplace consumer user interface was pushed. The Marketplace is now a packaged app that uses the REST API to populate the app. This was a huge change and makes the site faster and more awesome. To checkout the packaged app see the Fireplace app on github.

The Marketplace was also moved out of Aurora status.
