Forums 3 - Release 8

    General discussion

  • This week we released several bug fixes and changes into the forums.

    The most interesting or impactful changes are:
    - Update to the forum search list of scoping options.  You'll notice that in the drop down box for the forums search you'll now see fewer options.  The available options should make the list easier to use.  You can now widen the scope of the search from the forum or category you're looking at.  If you're in a specific forum you'll search that forum by default.

    - Hyperlinks will now allow strings with "ID=" in them.  The overzealous ID stripping has been fixed and you should now be able to insert links properly.

    - Updates to MVP Profile Sync.  This should make our MVP tag much more reliable.

    - Updates to the search application.  You should notice some small changes to the search experience that will make things better.

    As always if you see a problem, please report it in the bug reporting forum here.
