Group Permission Change failed after upgrade from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8

I meet 2 problems after I upgrade Jforum from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8.
Although I logined the forum as "Admin" , changed the groups' persmissions according to the relative categories and pressed "save" button to save my settings, the variations were not active at all, the groups permissions still kept the same as before.
Additonally, I could not see some categories in the "Admin Control Pannel" though they could be found in the database "jforum". All the groups were denied to access these "unseen" categories in the "Group Permission Control" ,and I could not change the permissions to see if the problem could be fixed in this way.

Does anybody have any suggestions or advice related to the problems?
Really appreciated for your feedback.
