UBB.threads 7.5.8 has been released and is now available to download in the Members Area.

Changes in this release and general notes:

Added new SEO features supporting Open Graph Meta Tags for posts allowing for enhanced social media and search engine indexing.

Includes the latest version of the Smarty Template engine

Compatibility with PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5

Compatibility with MySQL 5.6

Various bug fixes (at least 15), where 2 are considered a security risk. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you upgrade your board as soon as possible.

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, version 7.6, which will include a much anticipated mobile UBB theme as well as further SEO enhancements.
