This issue has been covered several times already in the bug reports section (although it isn't a bug, just a re-deisgn).

However, log in to your admin and go to System->Users->User Groups and edit the top-level admin group. Check ALL boxes in both the Access and Modify lists and save. Menu items will only display if the logged in user has access permissions to those items.

Then, go to Extensions->Extensions (all extensions are now accessed from here, including modules, payments, shipping, dashboard, themes, etc.) and select Dashboard from the drop-down list and install/enable the items you want on your dashboard page.

Modules for OpenCart
Homepage Module [Free - since OpenCart 0.7.7]
Multistore Extensions
Store Manager Multi-Vendor/Multi-Store management tool

If you're not living on the edge ... you're taking up too much space!

Thanks. It even says so in the update instructions. Missed that step.
