Finally another Alpha release of the upcoming 2.0 FUDforum. This release contains MAJOR feature enchantments as well as a whole slew of bug fixes.

The major features that were added are as follows:

1) Thread-X-Change, moderators can request that threads in their forums be moved to other forums they do not moderate. Their requests can be approved or decline by the admin or the moderator(s) of the destination forum.

2) Forum Import & Dump, this creates a backup of your forum, which you can then import via a convenient utility. If your PHP contains GZIP extensions (included by default on 99% of php distros) it will compress the "dump" file.

3) Avatar notifications, the user will now be notified whenever their custom avatar is approved or declined by the admin.

4) MIMEs. The icons for the uploaded files are now determined by their files types, so the user can quickly see what type of a file it is. In addition it allows FUDforum to send appropriate header to the browser when the file is being downloaded. Also added admin control panel for removing, adding & editing various MIMEs.

5) Numerous bug fixes.

6) Local support, this affects mostly the multilingual installation, where exporting of proper local makes dates appear in correct language as well string mangling functions now work appropriately.

7) Added German & Swedish support to the spell checker. Note, you may need to download German or Swedish dictionaries from Aspell's website.

Cool Added Optimizer, this tool optimizes the PHP files compiled from templates.

9) Another new feature, MySQL table prefix.

10) Group permission system **We would highly appreciate testing & feedback about this**

11) Thread Splitting functionality

12) Converted message storing to use 1 file (up to 2 gigs per file) rather then a file per thread.

13) Fixed the "invisibility" code, which now hides user's online status.

14) MANY MANY MANY bug fixes.

Please try this release on your test systems, we desperately need feedback & suggestion while this release is still in the development stage. Since our focus is currently at adding functionality & features, this is the time to make suggestions and request features. Once we complete this stage, no new features will appear until ~2.5 release.

You should perhaps report this message also at the announcement forum. I was just a second before installing. Puh...
