November 30, 2010 is the day for new.lds.org to become the new lds.org (is that confusing enough?). I’m looking forward to the change (although I’ve been using the beta site for a long time now). Visit here to read up on how you can prepare and use the new site. Through that link you can access some short video tutorials covering the basics of the site.
The overall purpose of the new LDS.org site mirrors the refined purposes of the Duty to God program, namely to learn, live, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Three simple things: learn, live, and share.
