The JForum team has just released JForum 2.6.0, which has a number of new improvements as well as 15 months worth of security and bug fixes. The gist of what's new can be found below, and the full list is at https://sourceforge.net/p/jforum2/wiki2/NewFeatures260/. The download is here. We welcome questions and suggestions at http://jforum.andowson.com/ (naturally hosted on JForum :-)

  • A Java 8 JVM is now required instead of a Java 7 JVM
  • The mobile version has seen lots of love
  • Various localizations have been improved, particularly English, German, Italian and Spanish
  • A number of XSS vulnerabilities have been addressed
  • Relative timestamps like on GitHub or Facebook are optionally available
  • Sharing of pages got improved so it no longer uses an external service
  • ... lots more

    JForum 2.6.1 has been released, which addresses two issues:

  • It installs and runs on the Jetty servlet container.
  • It fixes a bug where deleting posts would cause the corresponding entry in the Moderation Log to be illegible, and break the page layout.


  • All users can safely upgrade, but if you aren't using Jetty, or haven't run into the moderation log issue, it may not be worth the effort.

    JForum 2.6.2 has been released, which addresses two issues:

  • It installs and runs on the HSQLDB database.
  • Fixes a bug that prevents the window showing all smilies to pop up when writing a post.


  • All users can safely upgrade, but if you aren't using HSQLDB, or haven't run into the bug, it may not be worth the effort.
