Previously an automatic page refresh or change in the timeline scrollbar in the monitoring section reloaded the whole page. This was especially visible in screens, where it may take some time for all screen elements to load properly, and the result often was a page where elements jumped around for a while.
Since Zabbix 2.0.3, screens in monitoring do not refresh the whole page, but all the individual elements are reloaded in the background and replaced.
Additionally, image background reloading was implemented in Latest data, graphs and slideshows. This should result in a better user experience and reduced network traffic for all of these pages.
In previous 2.0 versions, map links were not available for editing when multiple elements were selected. Since 2.0.3, it is possible as follows:
Previously, classic theme tab colours were slightly confusing. The active tab had grey background, which made it look inactive, while other tabs had light background. This was changed so that the active tab now has a light background, while the inactive ones - blue. Active tab also lost the lower border, so that it indeed looks like one with the visible tab.
Previous theming was even more confusing when there were two tabs only, and it was not that clear which is the active one.

In the triggers page this was increasing the cell width considerably, and in the dashboard it did not allow to nicely provide access both to host context menu and maintenance details. This was changed in both locations to use a new icon - orange, round background with white wrench on it.
Database patch performance for upgrading 1.8 to 2.0 was significantly improved, especially for systems with lots of events.
