    Ladies and gentlemen,

    We are in for some major updates going on over here at WindowsForum.com!

    Not only are we currently using XenForo 1.5 BETA, but we are implementing features fast and furious!

    • You can now content tag your posts
    • We are working on integrating two-step authentication
    • Web server has been updated for better performance and HTTP/2 support.
    • You can preview your conversations before they're started.
    • You can like, search, and delete profile posts and they are less annoying.
    • We can float notices to bug you less (or more!)
    • More neat stuff coming soon.
    If you notice any bugs, please let us know @ https://windowsforum.com/misc/contact

    The forums have been updated to XenForo 1.5 Beta 3, Media Gallery has been updated and Resource Manager has been upgraded, for good measure. Some features for the media gallery will continue to remain unavailable at this time, including the ability to upload and trans-code videos via our servers, if you so wish, without using a 3rd party like YouTube.

    As an additional update, our primary web server software has been upgraded tonight, and this should improve some cache performance in certain circumstances.
