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)

So much better than "the good ol days" when you never knew if things might blow up in your face.

Yes, it's always a bit of a lottery, despite test server and backups. 🤣
