This is arguably the biggest update to Muse since the product’s initial release. The big new features this time around include Parallax Scrolling, In-Browser Editing, and something near and dear to my heart: a Layers panel. As always, there are a bunch of smaller updates and enhancements, too.
Parallax Scrolling helps you create animated effects that involve two (or more) “layers of content” that move in the browser at different speeds. It is a web design technique that enables you to set the speed of each element. Using this technology, you can apply these animated effects to individual objects on your page to create visually compelling designs. Check out a great example of a site using built with Muse using parallax scrolling.

Our new queue feature lets you create a list of courses that interest you, prioritize them, save them for future viewing, and track your course completion progress over time. Want more information about the queue? Watch lynda.com author Garrick Chow give a demonstration:
Log in to your lynda.com account. Add a course to your queue with the + button. These + buttons will appear almost everywhere a course title is listed. For more options, click the arrow button to select add to top of queue or go to queue. The first option, add to top of queue, will add this course to the top of your list of stored courses. The second option, go to queue, will take you to the queue page, where you can manage your list.
Once you’re logged in, the lynda.com homepage features the new My courses pod with tabs that show the first five courses in your queue and course history. Note: you must be logged in for queue to appear.
The my courses menu is located in the top navigation bar on every page of lynda.com. From the my courses menu you can get to your queue, course history, bookmarks, and certificates of completion.
The queue area of lynda.com can be accessed in three ways:
