miniBB 3.2.2 has been released today and as always, is available for free to download. And as usually, you have to check the History of Updates - follow below the file named !UPDATE.txt for checking out an exact tape of updates.

This release includes small-to-medium non-security related yet important bugfixes; also core updates regarding Premoderation 2 add-on (the older version of this add-on is being eliminated from the core and no longer supported); and various default CSS/templates fixes and adjustments.

I appreciate the help of all our top customers, which provided bug reports and new features for this release; specifically, Verify Your IP and JackRussellTerrier.ru community.

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.

Read more about the new features of this add-on on its page; you may also check it on miniBB Demo or Compiler.

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 community.

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! :)

Quick addition: the Mobile Template add-on has been updated today to have the new CSS and some template additions similar to which were added for miniBB 3.2.2; respectively, HTML5 Input Types for search.html, search_box.html and user_dataform.html templates; also `.postedText img`, `.popUp img` and `.fPopUp img` having max-width:100%; for images.

Since these changes are not about the core change, I didn't change the add-on's version number; all valid purchasers are welcome to update if for free. Enjoy.

A little update on this: Premoderation add-on fixed regarding approving of uploaded files in the case, when no files were uploaded because of invalid size or type, but the files folder still was being created. This brought an effect of existing files in the topics when there are no files. I've just fixed 'addon_premod_panel.php' and now this add-on was also absolutely checked on minibb demo and is available for more tests.

It works perfectly, thank you. This is especially important for mobile uploads.

In other words, the old Premoderation add-on is not compatible with miniBB 3.2.2?
