New Features

Feature: Modified all gallery posts, so when viewing a picture it will give you the ubbcode for the thumbnail, medium and full sized images in the Post Description area. Also now displaying the size and dimensions of the full sized image.
Feature: Modified the image/file manager to display the max allowed size of images of files.
Feature: Added the online/offline indicator to the profile pages.
Feature: When editing forum permissions, you will now be able to see what the max attachment size is set to in php.ini and you will not be able to set a value higher than this for File or Gallery attachments.
Feature: Added Page Jumpers to the bottom of individual private messages when they are multiple pages long.
Feature: Added the option for admins to make it so users would be added to the Users group when reaching a certain post count. Previously, this was only available on custom groups.
Feature: When clicking the Use link on Saved Queries, it will now copy the saved description into the Description text box as well.
Feature: When a user changes their email in their profile a verification email will be sent to the new address. The account email will not be changed until the user clicks on the verification email.
Feature: Added blaaskaak's mod that allows you to search for users on the showmembers page, with a slight modification. Instead of just being able to search for users that start with a certain string, it will search for users that have the string anywhere in their username.
Feature: Added a new Mass Permission Copy page. This allows you to copy the permissions for a single forum to multiple specified forums in one step.
Feature: Added another default island to show the Top Posters in the Last 30 days in addition to the one that shows over all time.
Feature: On the Custom Islands Screen, it is now possible to add additional Custom Islands. So the limit is no longer 10 Custom Islands, it's unlimited.
Feature: The Permission to Delete any posts and Delete Topics have been split up. So Admins will now be able to specify that some moderators will be able to delete posts but not entire topics. The default permission for DELETE TOPICS will be the same as the current DELETE POSTS setting for each group upon upgrade.
Feature: Added a new option under Feature settings for setting the maximum width for images using the [img] tag. This uses browser scaling, as a quick way to keep large sized images from distorting the layout. Leaving this option empty will leave the images untouched so they display as they currently do.
Feature: Added blaaskaak's mod for a Today's Birthday Portal Island. Under Portal Settings there is an option to only include users online within a certain number of days. Added some extra code so this island is only rebuilt at the beginning of each day under normal conditions. It will also rebuild when a new user registers or somebody changes their profile.
Feature: Added a "Featured Member" portal island. This rebuilds every hour and selects a random member out of the database that isn't banned. Under Portal Settings there is an option to only include users that have been active in the last certain number of days.

Feature Changes

Change: Permission to view Active Topics are no longer linked to being able to Search. So the Active Topics menu will be available to all as it was originally intended
Change: The New User Island will no longer contain banned users.
Change: Modified the header so the common.css file is loaded first and then the specfic stylesheet is loaded after so it cascades properly.
Change: Modified the gallery code to allow for the .jpeg extension in addition to just .jpg
Change: Clicking on a gallery image will now always take you to the image, even if there are new comments for that image. Clicking on the "Comments" link will still take you to the newest comment.
Change: All references of "Login Name" have been changed to "Username". This was done due to the fact that in some places we referred to "Username", some "Login Name". Since Username is the more common word in applications, we went with it.
Change: When the forum is initially loaded, it will check the HTTP_HOST and protocol being used. By default, if this doesn't match the FULL_URL it will redirect the user. There is an option to force the FULL_URL to the current URL the user is accessing the forum from.
Change: When an attached image is shown inline with the post it will no longer show the (XX downloads) next to the inline image.
Change: Modified the sort order on the RSS Control Panel screen so it sorts similar to the Forum Summary.
Change: When Age Verification is enabled on the registration screen, this will be populated into the User's Birthday Field. They will also get the choice to choose to show their birthday in their profile while registering.
Change: Added the gallery directory and sub-directories to the Permission Check screen in the Control Panel.

BugFix: Language file entries associated with a lower case array key would be dropped when using the Language Editor in the Control Panel.
BugFix: htmlentities() was still being used in some of the control panel scripts, namely the Custom Island Editors. This would essentially break multi-byte strings when trying to edit Custom Islands.
