New version, new security, new features

Postby Thilo » Thu Jul 31, 2008 5:01 pm

For five years, programmers all over the world have worked on the new version of our forum, the phpbb 3.0 "Olympus". This new version should not only make you forget all technical problems known from earlier versions. It will make you discover a wide range of completely new features and gives a whole new pleasure of discussing only. Here are some advantages:

Easier to overview
- All threads that have recently been discussed can be shown on one single summarizing page to let you immediately discover the hot topics. - Font size can be made larger or smaller according to your preferences - The search engine is faster, and the overview of results much clearer. You can also restrict your search to specific threads. - You can watch and threads so that you will be informed when there is a new message. - You can control all these functionalities and more over one central control panel.

More sociable
- You can define "friends" for whose posts you are especially interested. When logging in, you will see a summary of their last posts. - All posts can be printed out or recommended to others by e-mail. - A chat functionality permits immediate exchange. - You can be informed on your instant messenger when a new post appears to a topic you are interested in.

More multimedia
- You can add attachments to your posts, such as video or sound files.

More secure
- Spambots are having a harder time to register, and moderators can more easily delete them. - The recent problems of the forum disappearing from time to time should also be solved thanks to the much more powerfull database used.

And that was just a small part of all the new possibilities. You will find many more!
