07/25/16 10:09 AM Version 7.6.0 Changelog - Not Yet Released by id242
For 7.6.0, just about ALL of the files have been changed since 7.5.9.

UBB.threads 7.6.0 Changelogs Introduction
At this time, UBB.threads version 7.6.0 is very much still work in progress. Its current code will change several more times before being published to the Members area of http://www.ubbcentral.com. This *WORK IN PROGRESS* code is not available for purchase or download (other than by our current group of testers). This series of progress reports is being made public to share the development progress on UBB.threads version 7.6.0. Items may be pulled from the final release or may be reworked to have a different presentation than what is depicted in this post. This is very much WORK IN PROGRESS and not by any means "final."

In an attempt to make the ongoing development status more obvious, these changelog notes are being mirrored from UBBDev.com.

Snapshots
As a general concept which many developers follow when writing complex software, is to regularly make available "Snapshot" releases to all the testers. Snapshot builds are generated right before moving forward with another large change. They allow the testers to evaluate features. and review the software as it is being developed.

As a general source control (version control) term, a snapshot version indicates a view of the source code taken at a specific time. This is not necessarily stable or ready for full use and can be changed in the future, as opposed to a release version which is stable and should be final and ready for a general release.

Snapshots are also used where if a bug gets introduced in development, we can go backwards a few snapshot steps to see where that bug started, and then easily handle it. In addition, it makes sure that at any point in time, more than one person has access to the development code, and they can move forward with it if a fellow programmer quits or just disappears for whatever reason.

Click through and read up on the changes as they are posted. A link at the end of each post will take you to the discussion regarding that specific changelog.

01/27/15 12:57 PM UBB.Threads 7.5.9 - Multiple Bug Fixes, Layout Fixes, Code Cleanup by UBBSystems
UBB.Threads 7.5.9 has been released and is now available to download in the Members Area.

Changes in this release and general notes:

This release is primarily a "code cleanup" release. There are a few much-needed fixes to the layout within the admin section and the overall general layout of how the forums are displayed.

Much of the code now has standardized headers across all files.

In order to lower the install footprint even more, all of the blank and "// end if" comments have been stripped. Multiple lines have had "trailing spaces" stripped. Grouped-spaces have been converted to tabs. Basically, there has been a lot of cleaning up put in to each file.

There have been numerous corrections made to the English language files.

And finally, some long-standing bugs have been squashed.

First and most importantly about this release, the UPGRADE_CHANGES.txt and LANGUAGE_CHANGES.txt (100 lines) list all the files/lines with major and minor changes. Roughly 720 files have been "touched" and cleaned up. This cleanup and standardization of the software code should help UBB.threads move forward. It was a huge job and one that was obviously put off for many releases.

If you have modified your board (modifications to stock UBB.Threads code), you can use an automation tool such as Beyond Compare to assist with your manual upgrade. Although the list is short, there are quite a few files that have changed for this release. It is also strongly urged that you upload all the files that are in the scripts, templates, admin, libs, languages and ubb_js directories and not rely on the UPGRADE_CHANGES.txt file. This will also ensure that any older file changes are also pulled into the current release.

UBBCentral has professional staff on hand and offers professional install and upgrade services available in the Members Area.

We are also working on our next release which will include a much anticipated mobile UBB theme as well as further SEO enhancements.

Special thanks to James Corthell (Gremelin, ubbdev.com), Isaac DeCoursey (id242, id242.com), and the team at VNC Web Services for their hard work on the UBB.threads v7.5.9 release.
