Customizing Commons 1.7

I just starting using commons 1.7 after using 1.5, and I noticed a lot of changes. I noticed that panels are no longer used. Was there a reason for this? Was it a performance issue. I use view arguments with panels content pane settings to display data based on the url argument. Can this still be done without panels?
I customized the profile page look on 1.5, and 1.7 does not follow the same format. I'm guessing that the profile page no longer uses user-profile.tpl.php. So how does it render the middle content with tabs taking a user to about information and recent activities. i also notice that there is a new sidebar that pops up the administration menu if you click on it. What file creates this functionality. Is this a javascript function?
