I have discovered three things. First, I was informed by IBM that the changes were retrofitted back to V6R1, so if you get the equivalent group updates for V6R1 you should be able to enjoy the new interface at that level as well. I did not know they did that, and that's cool.

Add to the group list the Java Group. Not required, but a very good idea nonetheless since quite a bit of this is Java.

Lastly, before signing on the first time, be sure to clear the cache of your browser. One of the things that happens is the web interface changes from HTTP to HTTPS during the log on process and some browsers are not picking up the new certificate properly. If you get a goofy looking first screen, try and reconnect again after clearing the browser cache and any certificates for that server that have been downloaded. This is a browser issue, but it is particularly annoying until it's cleared.
