Quicksilver Forums 1.5 is out!

Though I suspect not many people are still watching....

Quicksilver Forums 1.5 is out, after nearly 3 years of sitting on it. I'll just get right to the changelog then:

Changes for 1.5:

* Massive overhaul of the installer system.
* Added support for MySQLi.
* Replace image captcha with math based captcha.
* Error display should not post code details to the browser.
* Dropped timezone tables in favor of PHP 5 methods.
* Statistics center ceased functioning due to jpgraph not being PHP 5 compatible.
* Jpgraph library has now been removed.
* Hacks for IE6 and IE7 in the main index pages have been removed. Upgrade to IE8.
* Updated Google Analytics code.
* Default number of members displayed per members page raised from 10 to 25.
* Long awaited preview mode when editing posts.
* Slight rearranging of the forum topics display to save a bit of vertical space.
* User IP will be added to mail headers delivered through the email form.
* Top of page will now display where a new post, poll, or reply is being made to.
* Moved topics now show up more visibly if left linked to the old forum.
* Removed all obsolete tools.
* Akismet protection has been integrated for the email form, signature edits, forum posts, and new user registration.
* Dropped inclusion of all non-English translation files. They are all horribly out of date anyway.
* Switched bbcode parser due to the large number of deprecation warnings caused by the old one.
* Switched emoticon handling to one that will function properly based on the chosen skin.
* Updated avatar handling.
* Fixed local avatar selection.
* Meta tags for the site can now be set via the board settings menu in the ACP.
* Dropped unsupported converters. Will reinstate if there is a need.... read more

Quicksilver Forums 1.3.1

Key changes include:

* Most languages now use UTF-8. This could cause some 'corruption' of existing posts that use non-english characters. Sorry about that but we need this change for the javascript tricks we are introducing
* Language updates to Swedish, Norwegian and German.
* New backup tool uses XML (and is far less likely to run out of memory)
* And many bugfixes
