announced in lj_support and changelog

remove the requirement that userpics have keywords.

you can now use userpics even if they don't have keywords... it'll just be ugly
and users will have to select their userpic by number. which will motivate them
all the more to go give them keywords.

DETAILS:

web/clients/etc will all show "pic#23423" as an option now, and that's
respected, even though it doesn't actually exist as a userpic keyword.



Userpics will be mapped to mood names

magic userpic keyword for mood mapping
http://rt.livejournal.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=195

that is, now (or soon) the userpic for an entry will be determined
by the post's mood, if there's userpic keyword defined on a post.

that is, you can put the keyword "sad" on a userpic, and if you ever
use the mood "sad" on a post, it uses your sad userpic.

glitch in 207.2answer

Read my or my friend's journal?
Go to http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/, replacing exampleusername with your or your friend's username.
If the username beings or ends with an underscore (_), you must use http://users.livejournal.com/exampleusername/ instead.
Obviously, it must be "begins". Next, it could be nice to mention replacement of underscores with minus signs in URLs when username contains underscore in the middle. Last but not least, worth to mention that lj-cut tag should be closed.
