Hi Rick,

Thank you for your feedback, which is the first of the kind since I  
changed the editing UI to something more compact (and still subject to  
changes after the nex release, I'm sketching something in this way)

The following is true if you're using 5.2.98 / git master code.

When I redesigned the editing UI, I wanted something more easy and  
straightforward to use for both people starting with Typo and people  
migrating from Wordpress / Movable Type / Whatever. The body /  
extended contents have been merged into one editor, with a "more"  
button to separate them, actually like on most CMS.

Excerpt is a content that will appear on the "list" pages (home,  
category, tags), but not on the post itself. It is currently a bit  
brocken, and there is a ticket open for this issue. Next release is  
due this week-end according our roadmap. This is the last known bug we  
have to fix before this, so expect things to work when we release.  
Expect also some more documented UI where it makes sense at that time.
