    Greetings, once again!

    As of late, we have updated PHP to the latest minor revision. This is an upgrade to 5.4.22 from 5.4.21. PHP, of course, is the server-side hypertext processor used by most websites. The type of under-the-hood changes can be found with these release notes:

    Most of these changes are completely irrelevant to our members, but keeping our server-side software up to date is essential for both performance and security reasons.

    Litespeed Web Server:

    While we are still experiencing problems with the rendering of CSS elements using Litespeed, we are looking to see if there is a turning point or fix for this issue. While Litespeed is active, it may not necessarily be running at a given time, due to this issue. However, Litespeed was updated with these release notes:

    Mobile Apps:

    All of our mobile apps have been updated, except for iOS (Apple). This is expected, but we are looking forward to a quick turn around. Right now, version 3.0.5 is the universal copy for anyone running Android 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean, and KitKat)

    Those people with versions of Android that do not meet the ICS requirement will receive a different, but similar application. More information on this can be found here.

    Thanks for your support!
