In hints, when hovering over words in practice mode. I only see it in Spanish, though, not in German.

Were these removed for a time? I thought they were always here.

This is the first time I see "conjugate" not using xydrolase's script, and I've never seen the "explain" button before.

Explain is new, but conjugate has been around for quite a while. I think there was a recent bug that caused conjugations not to appear for a few days (there were a few posts complaining about it going missing in the last week or two), but it was fixed quickly.

Edit to add: This discussion mentions the disappearance of the conjugation tables, and has a response from a dev indicating that it was due to a bug that is now fixed.

@pinkodoug - I'm very surprised to hear that. I started my account on the Android app, and have hardly been using the web version until about two months ago, so I can only speak for the period after that point (the word tab is also a novelty for me), but since then, I never once saw it anywhere. I have used hints regularly and have actively looked for something like this (especially when I was close to the end of my Spanish tree five weeks ago, starting to mix up freshly learned tenses), I'm pretty certain I would've noticed it. I most definitely didn't have it in German at the time of starting this topic. :/ When they appeared, both options appeared simultaneously.

I just checked again. I only have conjugate - I've never had 'explain'. Must be a test feature. :)
