Good evening! As November has arrived, we have good news. The forum software has been updated to include the following fixes and changes:
  • Workaround a Firefox bug where the Flash uploader shows as an opaque white box.
  • Support redirects in the image proxy and link title conversion process (while maintaining security).
  • Improve autolinking when there are special characters (brackets and similar) immediately after a URL.
  • Maintain ICC profiles when resizing with ImageMagick.
  • Add extra verification to quote alerts to ensure you only get an alert when the quote is attributed to you.
  • The "Facebook Open Graph Logo" style property is now simply "Open Graph Logo" to indicate that it's usage is more generic.
  • Fix an HTML error in editor dialogs.
  • Fix advanced background-repeat CSS being improperly converted to style property values.
  • Add multi-submission prevention to report commenting to prevent accidental double clicks.
  • Change the default user agent on outgoing HTTP requests to indicate XenForo and the triggering installation URL.
  • Adjust the HTTP response code on malformed proxy output requests to a general 400 error to indicate the client sent a bad request.
  • Ensure that when files are dragged into the rich text editor, they are uploaded one by one rather than simultaneously.
  • Ensure that leading whitespace is maintained when pasting preformatted text into the rich text editor.
