Software upgrade
« on: January 02, 2020, 08:18:56 PM »
The board software has been updated to the latest version, 2.0.17.  This provides a few security/privacy fixes.

All users had to be logged out during the upgrade procedure.  Once you log back in, however, there should be no major noticeable changes.

Additionally (this has been around for a few weeks but never announced), it is now possible to obtain a "quick reply" box in private messages, similar to what can be found in threads.  This is disabled by default, and can be enabled in My Messages > Preferences > Change Settings.

If you experience any issues, no matter how minor they may appear, please mention it, either in this thread, in Snowdrop's Support Section, or on our Discord server.

Thanks everyone for your awesome contributions! :fiver

There has just been another software upgrade.  The forum is now running SMF 2.0.18 (the latest version) and PHP 7.3.  This provides a few bug/security fixes and performance improvements.

Once again, all users had to be logged out during the upgrade procedure.  Once you log back in, with your current password, there should be no major changes.

If you experience any issues, no matter how minor they may appear, please mention it, either in this thread, in Snowdrop's Support Section, or on our Discord server.

Stay awesome y'all :fiver

I thought all this tech stuff was fixed by a robot bunny. Another improvement that benefits the forum. It works well for me ^^    :hawkbit3
I love Watership Down!
