The Burthorpe Imperial Guard needs you! Members of all levels can now take on Daily Challenges: varied goals which, when completed, grant a healthy chunk of XP in the skill of your choice.
Each day, you'll be assigned a new Daily Challenge that you have the skill levels to fulfil. You can find out what this is through the new Noticeboard interface (more on that later).
These could be anything from culling the dagannoth population or brewing super prayer restore potions to cooking pies or growing watermelons. You can get hold of the materials you need however you like, but you'll need to complete at least the final stage of the process yourself. For example: if you're tasked with fletching yew longbows, you can buy the strings and bow shafts ready-made from the Grand Exchange and then put the bows together to complete the Daily Challenge.
When you're done, head over to Burthorpe and report in with the quartermaster for your reward. As you'll have to hand in any items that you're required to make, you'll be reimbursed with a challenge mystery bag, containing goods equivalent in value to any materials you had to use. On top of this, you'll get a hefty XP reward in the skill related to your completed Daily Challenge, as well as a spin on the Squeal of Fortune. Up to five of your most recently assigned Daily Challenges will be saved if not completed, so you can catch up if you miss out on a day or two.
Overcoming the thousands of Challenges that Gielinor can throw at you for sack-loads of XP and all expenses paid?
Gielinor is a vast place, filled with wonders, perils and riches aplenty, so sometimes the hardest thing is knowing what to do next! That's no longer a problem, with the introduction of the Noticeboard - the one-stop interface for all of your RuneScape adventures.
The Noticeboard - accessible anywhere via its icon in the bottom-right of the screen - brings the new Daily Challenge system together with the existing Quest Journal and Task Lists (now called Achievements) in one handy interface. For members, there's also a 'Minigames' tab, which directs you to Minigame or D&D content that's accessible to you, of the type that you want to play. To top it off, we've also included a 'Featured' tab, which picks out the best content that RuneScape has to offer that's suited to your levels, so you're never short of awesome content to experience.
How to start performing Daily Challenges
Access the Noticeboard, or speak to the Imperial Guard quartermaster in Burthorpe.

I want to do what I like to, not what Jagex tells me to do.
But maybe I should check it out and see how good the XP-rates are
And: Nooo! The fast 35k agility xp a day is gone!

EDIT: I don't think this is them telling us what to do. They're just suggestions of activity with the promise of differing rewards attached if you decide to do them. You're always free to ignore this update.
EDIT2: It's like another Distraction & Diversion.

These challenges are epic. I had to do a c6 floor in daemonheim. I did a fl1. It took me like 5 min and the reward was 160k dungeoneering XP.
Cutting 30 magic logs = 25k woodcutting xp + 19 raw rocktail and 169 coins (lvl 93)
Getting 190 death/law/nature runes in runespan = 26 701 rc XP (lvl 82)
16 mithril ceremonial swords = 16 934 smith xp + 32,304 gp + 16 grimy torstol (596,016 gp) (lvl 84)
(Yes, I'm using this post as a log.)

Edit: I'm missing my dedicated Quest tab, though. A lot.

The quest tab is now part of the Noticeboard area. Does seem like a lot of clicking to get there.
i know, but WHY did they remove it?

That is all I have taken from this update and the majority of Jagex's new updates recently. It seems as if they think that in order to obtain/keep members they must make the game eaiser and cheaper.

I feel that this would be dead content if the rewards weren't nice, though. (makes that kinda sad)
I agree, if not for the nice chunk of exp I wouldn't do half the things it gives as challenges.

Also it doesn't seem like you can pin quests, which is kind of a bummer.
