Here are some of the highlights ...
- The prosilver board style becomes a responsive design that provides a modern and unified experience across all your devices, including desktops, tablets and smart-phones. It also removes the need for the Artodia:Mobile workaround we've been using.
- A live Notifications feature which lives in the header of every page and provides a centralized place to receive alerts about various events, such as when you are quoted in a post.
- A number of navigational improvements. The Last post field on an index page now shows the topic title, rather than just who/when the last post was made. If there are unread posts, the topic icon now links to the first unread post.
- Automatic daylight savings time changes. Set your time zone and the system automatically handles daylight savings time changes.
- Improved functionality for the Forum rules.
- the subsilver2 board style is no longer supported. Unfortunately we don't have a supported equivalent style.
- Notification pop-ups are gone, replaced by the live notifications feature.
- IE6 and IE7 support has been dropped.
We've put together a Quick start guide for v3.1 to help to understand how to find some of the new features and the new locations of some existing functionality.
Please explore the new software. Report problems and ask questions if you're confused. We'll straighten most of the little foibles out as quickly as we can.
