Pipes 2.0 comes with a great new design. Great new typefaces, integrated Stories, Twitter & Wikipedia views. […] We’re also introducing Pipeline.

In addition to the new UI and Pipeline, version 2.0 of the app introduces a What’s Hot trending feed, News by Photos and smarter search, allowing for both misspelt words and synonyms.
