New Russian Tree? Новое русское дерево?

I come to Duolingo this morning and I see the Russian tree split into boxes with numbers over castles?? What does this mean?

Я пришёл на Дуолинго сегодня утром и увидел русское дерево в коробках с числами над замками?? Что это означает?

There is indeed a new tree in progress. Duolingo staff are probably just testing things out.

Thanks for the information!

I hope, if they release a new version, that they won't make it too easy or dumb it down, the progression is really nice as it is now imho.

Dear ChefVon:

I don't think it's a new tree just a new graphic. I just began working on Russian so I may be wrong but it looks like they added a "castle" graphic to divide the Russian into 4 sections. That's my take on it.
