How to view an Epic's children stories in GH 6.x?

Since the 6.0 release, I see the rapid board is the preferred board yet I see no way to really work with epics.

If an epic is in the backlog, I can't see what stories are associated with it.

If an epic is on the task board, same. It just shows the epic as any other issue sitting by itself.

I don't see any way to edit the epic to add stories to it from the rapid board either.

So all I can determine is epics are only manageable via the old (classic) boards though those are on their way to being deprecated from what I can tell.

Ok, thanks. Good to know it wasn't something I was missing. It's sad that GH 6.0 makes working with epics nearly useless IMO, but I'm guessing at some point they'll change it. We're new to the tool, so telling our brand new users how to go back to the now "classic" boards to work with them, yet not be able to really use them in the now standard "rapid board" is terribly confusing for them.

And Epics are on it's way, will arrive soon :)

anyone or is this just me?
