A couple weeks ago, it was uncovered that YouTube was testing a "secret" beta of a new channel layout. Since then, the YouTube team has been hard at work adding new features and making updates to the new channel design.

Brian at the YouTube Channel Blog lists these, which include:

– Backgrounds should now be fixed – yes, these broke for a short while – if your background isn’t on your channel right now, try uploading it again
– Can now message a user again

– Can now delete recent activity items
– Squashed the bug that prevented you from featuring a playlist
– Subscribe button appears when you’re looking at your own channel

– UI improvements

– Lots of bug fixes

In addition to these, you can also now rearrange the boxes on your channel with little arrows. These go any direction, but you can’t move the profile box or the big videos box at the top. You can remove these boxes with the "modules" tab.

Users of the redesign beta should note that you won’t be able to see the arrows on a black background, although Nick on the blog says this will be fixed soon. He also says that this feature is one of the few things that "auto saves," so if you move the boxes, they should be like that next time you log in too.
