I can't add a new forum to my install (JForum 2.1.7). No matter how I fill out the form, I get the error at the end of this post. Any ideas?

This was a bug in the net.jforum.view.admin.ForumAction file, relating to some new mail handling code. It's been commented out in CVS to fix the problem. Just download the latest file from CVS and recompile. That should fix your problem.
