Is there a list of new features in version 8 ?
All of the future version 8 change logs were moved from public view due to it just did not happen. Owners and programmers changed hands. And the project became to big to attempt to finish or completely start over.
So for now the direction is to have a version 7.6 and another security fix for the next release. But to be honest that also is long overdue.
The current version 7.5.6 works extremely well if that fits your needs.
BTW, I apologize for the sarcastic remark by one of our user members. That is not the norm from the rest of us. This is a user to user based support forum and we all try to help each other. New and old members alike.
