The new point release will implement an array of new features (the user-relevant ones in bold):

  • Native push notifications on supported devices/browsers
  • Editor button management
  • Enhanced editor integration and advanced BB code option syntax
  • Markdown support
  • Native table support in posts and other content types
  • Reactions
  • URL unfurling
  • Emoji enhancements including an improved smilie menu with easy emoji access
  • Video uploads
  • Approval queue improvements
  • Guest performance improvements including guest page caching
  • Content bookmarking and sharing
  • A fully featured REST API
  • One click XenForo upgrades and easier add-on installation
  • BB code and rich text editing for profile posts and comments
We thank you for your understanding and your patience and apologise for any inconvenience.

The upgrade took a little longer than expected, but we are back online.

I will introduce some of the new features over the next few days. Thank you again for your patience!

Currently, there seem to be problems with Private Conversations. The templates do not display messages, although they are stored in the database. I am working on the issue and will keep you updated.

We have just upgraded the forum and the core add-ons to 2.1.1 via the new one-click upgrade, and it was the fastest upgrade ever.

Very happy with the latest version! (y)
