The list of Groups shows a number and "new" in red. What does it mean?

New refers to the number of unread or new items in the group.  As soon as you go to the page that displays each of those new items, the count will go down until you've visited all "new" pages and the word "new" will disappear as well.  Remember these can be group posts, group events, group files, group projects, or group project tasks.  We don't have the text "new" displaying at each of the summaries of group posts yet, so it's hard to see which are the new ones.  3/9/12
