What Happened to the "Chat" Feature?

I really liked the "Chat" feature on the previous version. It was a great place to post links, quotes, and and comments that would not rise to the level of starting a new thread. I had hoped to see it reappear by and by. That not being the case, could it be restored? I don't want to make more work for anyone, but I really thought it was a good thing. If it could be restored, I would be very grateful.
