Well, perhaps it's not such a new feature, but I have been lax in explaining it.

When you create a new thread, you can now "tag" it. Tagging basically means you add some keywords to the post data and it will show up in the "tag cloud" on the bottom of the forum home page.

For example, lets say you were writing a new thread about Martha Furnace. You'd go through the motions of writing a post like normal. Then in the box below the editor for the post, there's a section where you can add Tags. An appropriate tag for Martha Furnace would be "martha furnace." Now, when you go to the tag cloud and click on the Martha Furnace tag, you'll be taken to a list of threads that have the same tag. The more posts with the same tag, the bigger it appears in the cloud.

You can have multiple tags in one thread. Just separate them by commas.
