Forums 4 - Release 8 - October 16, 2009

    General discussion

  • The October 09 release focussed mostly on some minor user interface updates, bug fixes and additional locale support. Even though the update was functionally minor there were a few minor interface annoyances the team will be looking into over the next few weeks. These include:
    Some fonts in the system are a little too large, such as the filter interface causeing some wrapping in the filter bars above thread lists

    Code snippet fonts became too large, we'll reduce them soon

    For those beta testing the NNTP Bridge Client beta, no update this week. We plan to post an update the next release in mid November

    October 16th Changes Include:

    Substantial effort to support the MSDN Redesign and maintain visual consistency and user navigation contexts across our shared online properties

    Doubled the number of locales supported (bringing the total to 35 locales). The following are the new locales introduced with this release: Australia (English), Austria (German), Belgium (Dutch & French), Bulgaria (Bulgarian), Denmark (Danish), Greece (Greek), Indonesia (Indonesian), Kazakhstan (Russian), Netherlands (Dutch), New Zealand (English), Norway (Norwegian), Portugal (Portuguese), Romania (Romanian), Slovakia (Slovak), Sweden (Swedish), Ukraine (Ukranian)
