The Output pane is gone and the command pane has been transformed into the frankly clunky blue powershell command prompt. Why? This is like taking 3 steps backwards.
I use the ISE to interactively manage my windows systems in much the same way that I use an xterm to manage my unix systems. I typically have many local and remote command tabs open separated by task with snippets of code in the "Untitled#" Script Pane that eventually make their way into my OneNote script repository. I periodically snapshot my history and output pane to capture workflow.
I prefer the ISE over powerGUI and other editors because it's faster and because I MUCH prefer the way it manages the Command Pane and the Output Pane. The separation is both visually and functionally appealing. If I want to run something in a non-gui command prompt, I just click on the handy "Start Powershell.exe" provided.
Please restore the Output pane! This is such a big deal that I've actually rolled back to the older CTP.
