FUDforum 2.8.1 RC1 was released and is now available for download. Thank you very much to everyone who made this release possible: Ilia for tagging and releasing the code, Peter Vendike for the Danish translation and JanRei and Marticus for the numerous usability and validation patches.

* Better UTF-8 support (case and accent insensitive searching)
* Add an external forum redirect feature
* More avatar images
* Ability to Minimize/Maximize posts in the Message Selector
* Move JavaScript to lib.js for faster page loading
* Add welcome message (new installations only)
* Introduce Forum Dashboard and remove install.php checks from mainstream code
* Add a SQL Manager to the Admin Control Panel
* Log message approval
* Various other Admin Control Panel enhancements

Fixes:

* Various usability and validation fixes (Marticus & JanRei)
* Convert FAQ help files to UTF-8
* Fix date display on Windows systems
* Fix reverse html to [img] tag rendering
* Better server name for SMTP EHLO
* Prevent users from posting invisible links

Translation updates:

* Add new Danish translation (Peter Vendike)
* German translation updated (JanRei)
* Afrikaans translation updated
* Remove chinese_big5 translation (not UTF-8)

Enjoy, but be responsible. Test and remember to backup before upgrading important forums!

Best regards.

Preferably in Bug Reports where we can discuss the problem and propose fixes.

Sorry, I've been AFK for moving and stuff. Thanks for the recognition, although I'd argue that I didn't do much. I suppose it is time to begin testing again. ^_^

I don't want to rush anyone, but is 2.8.1 expected to be released soon? If it is, I'll wait around for a few weeks for it. Otherwise I'll just install 2.8.0 this weekend.

Thanks.

Go for 2.8.0; you'll be able to upgrade to 2.8.1 very easily when it arrives (the upgrade only takes a couple of minutes).
