I just logged into my YouTube account and found that a new dashboard has been enabled. Here is the new layout.
The new dashboard creates an easy location to see videos, stats and comments all in one screen. You can link to the full view of all of these, as well as reply to recent comments.
I think this is a good start, but could envision more information that could be added here. Still it is nice to have a nice overview to work with on a daily basis.
When the dashboard is available on your site, you will receive a pop-up note asking if you wish to enable it.
