Hi,

It's official, FUDforum version 2.8.0 was released a couple of minutes ago! So, hurry up and download it now. We hope that it will be a good release and a solid foundation for many future releases still to come.

A big thank you to everyone who made this release possible, especially Ilia for his great support and commitment to this project! Remember, everyone can help - and, we always need more volunteers to assist with testing, translations, documentation updates, theming and developing patches. Every contribution is appreciated and is vital to this project's continued success.

Overall we've made a huge amount of code changes. This release contains a number of bug fixes and new features that will make FUDforum an even more powerful forum system. Here are the changes since the 2.8.0 RC2 release:

- Ability to prevent new users from having links in their signatures till they have a certain number of posts
- The installer & upgrade script will now create new tables as utf8 encoded
- Fix attachment handling when using PostgreSQL (textcat typecast)
- The message compactor now works on Windows systems (close files before unlink)
- More USENET importing fixes (post duplication, mem limit, etc.)
- Fix sorting members by join date
- Several HTML optimizations and small fixes

Known problems:
- Help files for some non-English languages are not UTF8 encoded. A fix is available here.
- Dates do not display correctly on Windows with some non-English locales. A fix is available here.

As always, please test before upgrading your production systems. Also, remember to backup both your database AND FILES before upgrading.

Enjoy!

Frank

For what it's worth, the new bar across the top doesn't match the rest of the angular theme. The search box button is also very... red.

You can either remove or replace it with your own site's header. And, if you can do beter, you are more than welcome to submit a patch for the next release.

To restyle the button, change your forum.css.tmpl:
.headbutton {color:white; background-color: red;}


Best regards.

Frank

I'm on vacation right now so I can't test and install, but great work Frank, and congratulations. I'll be checking out the release version next week.
