Forum Press Review - October 2011

Here we are for our monthly press review of October 2011:

  • Invision Power Services was really active during September, releasing their eCommerce and business management application IP.Nexus 1.3.2, their search engine optimization tool IP.SEO 1.5.1, and a development version of IP.Board 3.2.3.
  • Internet Brands is also celebrating a new release of vBulletin 4.1.7.
  • Please remember upgrading your MyBB installation to 1.6.4, which integrates a fix of a security vulnerability. Note that MyBB 1.6.5, that will be the next version with new features, seems getting closer to release. The MyBB Merge System is also upgraded to 1.6.2, fixing 21 bugs mostly for PunBB, IPB, phpBB, SMF and vBulletin importations.
  • After celebrating their first anniversary, the XenForo team is working hard on the next major version 1.1, that will provide many features like custom profile fields, Admin Control Panel search feature, auto-embedding media resources, notices, thread prefixing, right-to-left language support and many more!
  • Single-Sign-on is finally included into Vanilla. For this feature to be supported on your forum, you will have to select among the two following plugins: ProxyConnect or jsConnect.
  • Finally, the two competitors FluxBB and PunBB gained a +1 on their respective version number, mostly for fixing security issues

Happy reading, and enjoy the coming week-end!
