While it is not June yet, its time to be prepared. We continue to provide the latest internal builds of vBulletin for all members on both http://windows7forums.com and Windows 8 Forums.

These builds are still in development, but include fixes to the existing editor code we began running some time ago. Currently, we have executed a simultaneous upgrade tonight using the following code branch tree:

version 414
branch svn://svn.jelsoft.com/vbulletin/suite/4.1/tags/2011-05-17-414_rc-2
last check in 43588 (05-17-11 17:10:49 CDT)

See here for a list of all issues currently resolved in the public release

version 414
branch svn://svn.jelsoft.com/vbulletin/suite/4.1/tags/2011-05-23-414_rc
last check in 43756 (05-23-11 16:59:53 CDT)

The fixes indicated include both a public and private release of the code. The private release is distributed only to vBulletin pre-development team contributors and volunteers, upon which we are credited for solving numerous issues.

Additional fixes since that time:

VBIV-11754 Popup message when exiting editor is misleading.
VBIV-11753 Autosave does not load titles
VBIV-12121 CKE: Bug with the plaintext parser and lists.
VBIV-12027 "Restore text" and autosave prepopulation into the editor behaviour - illogical?
VBIV-11985 Lastpost Data is incorrect for threads.
VBIV-12038 Include Smilies Button in Quick Reply Editor
VBIV-2964 Useless phrases
VBIV-11937 Incorrect error message is displayed while navigating to another page
VBIV-11898 Admin Help is Missing for "Autosave Content" Setting
VBIV-11912 Two New Editor StyleVars Are Missing their Phrases
VBIV-11911 Redundant Phrases of Inexistent StyleVar
VBIV-11751 Double click on 'Edit Post' in a thread gives Javascript error
VBIV-11794 What's New not available in Mobile Application
VBIV-11744 Email BB Code Cannot Be Inserted with Buttons in Source Mode
VBIV-8778 Editor is fixed-width in the forums; variable width (window-size dependent) for CMS, Blogs,Visitor Messages, PMs
VBIV-11948 horizontal scrolling while pressing the buttons in the editor
VBIV-12094 [Regression] Pasting copied HTML page in to new editor yields text only version
VBIV-12092 Cannot submit posts using Safari on the iPad

All of these issues are resolved and as we move closer to a final version, you should notice the new editor coming into full maturity and fruition. The bug reports of many users have been helpful in this endeavor, as we continue to work with vBulletin to provide both bug reports and occasional bug fixes.

vBulletin is the premier forum software suite for online communities and is widely known as an industry standard. Windows7Forums.com uses only the best software and hardware on our servers to provide a strong, up-to-date database, whereas many other Windows community forums are using forum code from years ago. You can identify the version a forum site is running by viewing the HTML source code and checking the META data for those pages. We continue to bring bleeding edge updates to our members as these updates become available.

This will allow us to promote new ideas for the software, work with the software development team, and provide extremely useful feedback that will improve the product for all website visitors. So far, the changes to the editor are slowly, but assuredly, becoming a success. As we now see the new editor itself far surpassing the capabilities of the old WYSIWYG editor.

version 414
branch svn://svn.jelsoft.com/vbulletin/suite/4.1/tags/2011-05-27-414_rc
last check in 43928 (05-27-11 16:59:47 CDT)

The following bug fixes, changes, improvements, and issues were addressed since last time:

VBIV-12011 Styling issue in Safari in Insert Image popup when selecting "From Computer"
VBIV-8882 Handling "Canceled Reversal" Transaction
VBIV-5766 Too Much Memory Used To Generate online.php

This is an unreleased nightly build of the software that is being tested.

While many of these changes may seem difficult to describe or understand, they are key to finalizing the new WYSIWYG editor that the forum is using, as well as correcting a number of new and long-standing issues. The site will continue to be updated in a timely fashion. Bug reports have gone a long way in helping to bring about these changes.

Once 4.1.4 of the forum software is finalized (gold version), efforts to bring about Android and iPhone mobile applications will be introduced to the website for SmartPhone users.

Outstanding Notes Many issues reported by Windows 7 Forums members have been corrected in the 4.1.4. There are some issues we are still looking into:
  • We are confirming that all Profile Privacy options are working. We believe that we have been able to produce an issue that may require developers take a look at it, although more research is necessary. Thanks, Ciara!
  • Memberlist Pagination has been fixed, and was the result of some programming issues in one of the 4.1.4 release candidates.
  • Auto-save functionality in the brand new CKEditor interface was initially kind of funky. We believe that changes to the editor have resolved most of these oddities.
  • We are aware that posting from Windows Phone may be an issue and are looking into it.
  • If the "Mark Forums Read" option at the bottom of the forum home does not work properly, we encourage members to use the drop down from "Forum Actions" at this time.
  • We continue to looki into oddities and bugs related to the Android phone application for Windows7Forums.com.
As we continue to work closely with our development partners, viewers should be pleased to know that in-line text advertising has been suspended until further notice. We are pleased to announce that we are looking into re-opening the forum moderator / volunteer staff application at this time. However, please wait until an official announcement becomes available. Thanks for reading!
