    I'm going to use this thread to note when I add or change minor faunctionality through add-ons, or when I apply a update of XenForo that provides new or altered functionality.

    Today we moved to XenForo 1.5

    On the front page you'll now see a list of threads with the latest posts (currently 5 most recently updated)

    There are a larger number of items that are more concerned with the backend operations in this update, won't bore anyone with a list.

    Behind the scenes item. Mandrill has been our transactional email service provider. That will be coming to an end. In the next week we will be transitioning to SparkPost for this service. Hopefully your emails will not end up in the spam bucket.

    Nick, I know you're way out there on the Left Coast, but if you ever make it to the Carolina's, the first beer is on me.

    Thanks Nick. I do appreciate having this forum. Without it, I probably would not have gotten back into combat warships.

    I am glad you guys like it. I've got more I want to do and add, but have been a bit busy. Something about a house and a 3 year old, lol. As always if there's anything you guys would like to see, or don't like, let me know.

    Tonight we engaged in a (much longer than planned for) upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which necessitated upgrades to MySQL and PHP. The move to PHP7 induced some delightful headaches, which I _think_ I have resolved.
    But please let me know if anything is broken, possibly broken, or different.

    He has made sure the NSA isn't reading our private communications.

    Those pesky Ruskies, making communications hard for everyone. NSA is too busy recording my cell phone conversations.
