We have now released version 2.1.7 of JForum.

This is mainly a bugfix release, but we have also improved some of the existing functionality. It's worth mentioning that we have removed some of the translations that had not been maintained for a while. A norwegian translation has also been introduced.

You can find the changelist here: http://www.jforum.net/latest_version.txt

The JForum team will like to thank everybody that have contributed to this release in form of code, bug reports, translations, and everything else that have made this release possible.

We will now focus on JForum 3, but will consider dropping patches for 2.1.7 if any serious bugs are reported.

Great! Congrats! Many Thanks! Applause! etc.

But... (you knew this was coming)... can the notice message that gets displayed in 2.1.6's admin screen be shortened to just show a link to the release notes and not the full text?

It's going to take me some time to re-integrate with the new version and I can see this will become annoying... OK, OK, I know I can turn off / replace the check message locally...but... Hmm, on the other hand, I can see the advantage of an annoying message to upgrade... :lol:

Do you mean the text from here: http://www.jforum.net/latest_version.txt ?

Yes, everything after the first newline gets added to the "notes" section in the admin/welcome.htm template. E.g., the results look like:



It would be nice if the version check file was shorter, like:



So the message at the top would only be about 10 lines long.

TIA

Well, we can put it on a scrollabe div. Please register this at jira, so we can improve in the next version.

OK, will do.

But FWIW, I just assumed it would be a little bit of documentation change on the www.jforum.net site and not any code changes.

IMHO, the http://www.jforum.net/latest_version.txt file is responsible for notifying people of a new version and directing them to info, but not giving them all the info. The info about a new version would be in some combination of release notes and/or change log documents.

Not trying to make a big deal, just thought a little quick document mods would make life easier for admins who need to live with 2.1.6 for a while.

I'd like to get 2.1.7 from the CVS branch.

Is B_2_1_7 the same code as the 2.1.7 release download version?

Is B_2_1_7 now "stable" branch?

Hi, I haven't got the time to "clean up" in cvs yet. Soon I will merge to B_2_1_7 branch to the main trunk and tag it with v-2_1_7.

The B_2_1_7-release tag inside the B_2_1_7 branch represents the 2.1.7 release for now.
