Merry Christmas to everybody which celebrates them, Happy Holidays to those who just relax these days, and Successful Shopping and Drinking for everybody from miniBB team ;-)
To finish up the 2009, we have the last version released this year. It contain only minor core improvements and user interface extensions, sharing more comfort to its users and customers, and getting even more stable and attractive in terms of speed and usability.
In this version it's now possible to customize the width and height of forum icons without major modifications of templates; there is improved Quotation mechanism for forum fans which love to reply and quote other messages often; there are also layout improvements and auto-login provided after registration, and few minor fixes. No security holes this time [jingle bells ;)]
The Quoting and Replying mechanism is improved to provide dynamic links through the whole thread. Now, if you click "Reply", it will focus on Reply box pasting the Username of the poster; if you click "Quote" without selecting the text, it will give an alert like in older versions. There is a major improvement on Quoting: click "Quote", write in your reply, then click on the little "arrow-up" icon near "Your Reply" heading - you should quickly get back to the quoted message
, to continue replying in the same thread to many users at once.
You may need to update the /* File Upload addon hack parseTopic part */
providing new forum icons width, as well as Checker's add-on's templates/addon_checker_queue_cell.html to redefine width and height in the new dynamic manner. However it's not mandatory, because older 16x16 px format will work well with those add-ons.
Take your newest miniBB version today or right in the new year, and as usually, follow our Updating Guide to upgrade even hardly customized versions.
We have also updated our full miniBB demo website to have the newest release, so you're welcome to report bugs and errors if you are able to repeat them there.
