Premoderation 2 add-on is the biggest change for miniBB important extras in years. We didn't improve something regarding the older version of this feature. Instead, it has been completely rewritten. Now pre-approved messages will go to a completely standalone database-based queue and will not be visible on forum in any way, with no affection to the generic forum speed and efficiency. The new algorithms allow more pleasant and quick moderation of topics/messages and also pre-moderated members; this all could be checked by forum administrator and moderators.

The new Premoderation functionality has been completely sponsored, developed and successfully used now on extremely big and active community of looti.net
The newer version of File Uploads add-on
comes out today, too. Now it includes a bundling chain with the Premoderation 2 add-on - attached pictures and files will go to the Premoderation queue among the pre-approved content, and are possible to delete before the message goes live. Version 2.2.1 also contains an experimental feature of picture orientation by exif data, useful for pictures uploaded from different angles of a mobile device position. This feature would require PHP compiled with exif extension, but it's optional - the add-on could still work without it. This option has been initiated and sponsored by indostan.ru
There was a big work and testing involved in these new options and releases, and I hope the updated miniBB is going to become even better with them. As always, feel free to post your questions and suggestions right in this thread.
Enjoy using miniBB! :)
