We understand that you was expecting a stable release but sorry we can't release it as stable, but it's enough stable for production. We hope this is lastest RC release. If we will have another RC release, it will only include bug fixes or important updates. For new features, please wait for next version. Thank you.

Nice work.
Btw I think you mean "we hope this is THE LAST RC release", not "the latest", because currently it is the latest :)

After upgrading the forum, signups are NOT possible if image verification is enabled. NO matter how many times it's typed (correctly), the system ALWAYS thinks the image is incorrect.

Please actually test these things before releasing stuff!

Did you follow the instructions and run mf_admin/upgrade.php? You might be missing something in the db that's needed.

Oy Vey!
Come on people, do we bug test here, or do we just throw crap out there?

Not only does the 'image verification' feature not work, but the 'email activation' feature on new signup doesn't work either.

Little bit of common sense here:
If it aint broken, DON'T fix it! These were both working FINE previously!!!

Add to this, the theme selection on forum creation being completely ignored. Bah! We wait for months for 'stability', yet get thrown this garbage?

okforum:
What mods do you have installed on your forum? I just ran across the same get_var problem with an attachment mod.

Unfortunately, this will require advanced programming to fix, or for echophp to get off their tails and provide support (good luck there). Lesson to be learned? Don't use common function names in your own scripts.

Change something
Click save
