I've just upgraded the forums to UBB.Threads 7.2 Final; for the last month or so we've been operating on UBB.Threads 7.2 Beta 2 and prior to that 7.1.1 Final.

The 7.2 changelog can be found here for all of you curious monkeys.

A small list of changes:
  1. Spoiler Tags.
    These can be accessed via the Full Reply screen. "S" with the Diagonal line. What are spoiler tags for?
    There are many reasons.
    1. ) A Review and you don't want to spoil the ending.
    2. ) A joke with a funny ending.
    3. ) Or the answer to a question.
  2. Mark a Forum as Read
    The New Post Icon next to a forum can now be double-clicked to mark an individual and sub forums to be marked as ALL Read.
  3. Who's On-line More Details
    screen to show the actual topic a user is looking at
  4. Quick Full Reply
    A New Button under the quick reply box "Switch to Full Reply"
    This will keep your text in the quick reply and place it
    into the full reply for you. Where you can access all the Active panel controls.
  5. Leaving a Private Message Notice
    When a someone removes themselves from a private message / topic a note will be added to the topic to let other participants know.
  6. Images with a Descriptions
    When using the File / Image Manager you can now add a description {caption}
    to appear underneath your picture. Available with the uploader only.
  7. Moods have Moved
    Changed the online /off line indicator next to users name,
    you can hover over it to see text of that mood.
  8. Who is in a Private Message
    private messages, it will now show all participants in each private message.

    the Forum and the Topic Title in the Subject line.

    how many images you can upload.

As you'll notice, my video blogging tags didn't make the cut for 7.2, Rick's assured me that the only thing that's waiting is for the markup panel (see the full reply page) to have an area to slab them in.

You'll also notice that my spoiler tags however did make the cut and are now a part of the stock code. Unfortunately the later addition which allow you to define the text of the warning however was too late to make it in this round.

I've actually had the chance to take a gander at some of the updates in 7.3 and am really pleased with all of the hard work that's gone into it; lets hope that the beta season starts early (go figure I can't be thankful that we just got out of one lol)...
