What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

At the bottom of the information page for access to moderator tools, you see this:

More!

This privilege also grants you access to the following lists:

  • recently closed questions
  • recently imported questions
  • new answers to old questions
  • suggested edit stats
  • anonymous feedback stats

These help highlight potential problem areas – or just areas of high activity – on the site.

I was just a bit confused about the new answers to old questions bullet item. Would this not be the same thing as the late answers tab now available in the review section? If not, what's the difference?

Somewhat related, I also thought I read somewhere that the moderation tools were no longer at /tools and were merged into /review with everything else, but the link on that page still points to /tools/flagged?

I don't want to edit things when I'm not 100% sure...

No, these still remain. The review page displays a subset of tools available at /tools

If not, what's the difference?

The difference is that New Answers to Old Questions shows new answers by anyone to questions older than 30 days, while Late Answers shows list of answers to old questions provided by users with less than 10 reputation - with the added option of show answers posted last day/weeek/month/year/since start.
