Greetings to everyone who visits and participates on WindowsForum.com. Since this will be (likely) the last update of the year, I thought I'd go into some full details, for those who are technically inclined, or perhaps, just like reading about software updates. On December 1st, XenForo released 1.5.3 of their software. In accordance with best practices, we waited about a week to adopt this software. Here is a run down of changes in the forum software: On that very same day, it was time to update a number of other modifications to the software. These include: Enhanced Search updated from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 (Elasticsearch engine interface). This is arguably one of the most important changes for awhile, as it included the following: We also updated the Resource Manager from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2, which provides the ability to link to many important downloads. Here's some information on that update. And, finally we updated the Media Gallery, from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3: While many users may not get the full "this is an entire new website" vibe from these changes, they are always significant, so I thought I would be extra meticulous in crafting out what has changed in these updates. While, admittedly, filled with technical jargon, 90% of which doesn't apply to this website, our update process slowly does improve the software, so this should be a good maintenance update run going into next year. Tapatalk API was also updated from 2.4.7 to 2.4.10 which will allow for better communication for future versions of our mobile apps, which are coming. Elasticsearch updated to 2.1.0. This should drastically improve site search and results. Privacy Options now allow you to block OS/Browser display. Thank you so much for your support! Have a great holiday!
