Released on July 9 2013, Valve has released Dota 2 on a brand new engine, the Source 2, and some of the bigger changes are the much needed improvements to the user interface and the way you can watch official matches in-game.

Alongside the announcement are a lot of video guides ranging from how to join games to how to create your own party. Valve's sleek new user interface also boast a new way to rate yourself in the means of a hero MMR. 

Besides that, Valve has also made significant improvements on the AI front, making sure the game is easier to learn for newcomers. 

"Many of you told us that while our existing tutorials were good for teaching Dota's mechanics, they weren't great at helping new players understand why Dota is awesome. So we've built a new system of Guided Bot Matches, which allows a new player to jump right in and experience a full Dota game, all the while receiving guidance from an AI director," Valve responds to Dota 2's high learning curve.

Valve also mentioned that they will also be making the access to custom games a lot simpler but that will be a discussion for next week.

You can view all the awesome changes coming to Dota 2 here. At the time of writing, the new UI has not been implemented into the game. The changes are expected to come next week.
