We are nearly ready to release the supported version of IP.Board 3.4 and are very excited to get this great new release out to you.
We are currently doing a public beta test of IP.Board 3.4. If you are comfortable testing pre-release software please consider testing and letting us know any bugs you might find. You can find the pre-release on our forums but you will need to login as an active IPS Client to access. The more people who test our beta releases the better for everyone!
Please read these blog entries for a full list and explanation of what's new in this release.
- IP.SEO Removed (we have removed IP.SEO and merged all its functionality right into IP.Board!)
- Editor Improvements
- IPS Connect (please note that with the release of Connect our old Converge product will no longer function)
- SEO Improvements
- VigLink Integration
- Best Answer Feature
- AdminCP Interface Enhancements
- Bulk Mail with Mandrill
- Miscellaneous Enhancements
- IPS CDN Service
In addition to the specifics in the blog entries we have fixed many issues and made many smaller improvements.
New Backup Service Delayed
We had announced a new Backup Service however this service will be not be available at release time. We want to be sure the service works reliably and would rather delay a bit than give you something that may not work properly. Obviously something as important as backups on your community is something we want to feel confident about offering.
Depending on how our beta testing goes we hope to release IP.Board 3.4 by the end of November. If you are comfortable testing we encourage you to do so so we can be sure this release is as stable as possible. Thank you!
